Tangie Lyons is a Centre Daily Times Athlete of the Week.

Lyons, who recently graduated from Penns Valley High School, delivered the key blow in helping District 6 score a 6-4 victory against District 4 in the annual Pennsylvania Softball Coaches Association All-Star Game at Penn State’s Nittany Lion Softball Park.

Lyons blasted a three-run home run that cleared the Beard Field fence in left-center field in the third inning to snap a 1-1 tie and District 6 led the rest of the game.

The contest was the final fast-pitch game for Lyons, who missed most of her senior season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee.
