Sports Spotlight 6-3: Carlyle Lyga

Bangor senior Carlyle Lyga is the latest athlete in our Sports Spotlight.

Lyga was a three-sport athlete all through high school, in track and field, cross country and wrestling. In cross country he was the team captain the last two years and was named First Team All-Scenic Bluffs his senior season.

On the mat he was a team captain, too, and totaled 88 career wins and 500 career team points. He was a two-time regional and conference runner-up, and he also qualified twice for sectionals.

In track he was aiming to capture the school record in the two mile run this spring, but he didn’t get to run his final season due to the pandemic. In the years before, he qualified for sectionals twice in the 3200 relay.
