Lyons will major in coastal marine sciences and secondary education at Sacred Heart, located in Connecticut with an NCAA Division I program.

Lyons did not compete for Lourdes during her junior year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“COVID definitely put a damper on my Junior rowing season for both my high school and club teams as there were no regattas for me to compete in,” she said in a press release from the school. “These races were something I really looked forward to attending, both for the competition and the time spent with my teammates. But I wasn’t going to let this get in the way of my goal of rowing in college.”
