Benilde-St.Margaret’s has been to the State tournament 4 times in the past 11 seasons.  These trips are highlighted by winning the State Championship in 2006 and 2010 along with winning third place in 2007 and 2011.    While state tournament appearances are nice, Lyons and the Red Knights take pride in their consistency having won their conference titles eight of the past eleven seasons.  The string of titles was highlighted by a four-year stretch of going undefeated and accumulating a winning streak of 64 straight conference games from 02-07.


On top of his teams success on the hardwood, Lyons was selected to coach the 2006 AAA All Star team, has won conference and section coaching awards, had his Red Knights teams win numerous academic awards, and served as the AAA section 6 state representative for the past six seasons.
