Estevan Mermaids head coach Brenda Lyons has received her Sask. Sport Female Coach Dedication Award.
It was announced in late January that Lyons would be this year's recipient of the award, thanks to her dedication to synchronized swimming and other sports in the community. The award was officially presented to her on April 12 during the Sadie Caulder Knight Provincial Championships.
Lyons spends many hours each week preparing for practices and coaching the Mermaids, helping them improve their skills and allowing them to be ready for meets. Many of the swimmers have enjoyed tremendous success at events, and the Mermaids are now the largest synchronized swimming club in the province.
Lyons and the other coaches for the Mermaids are volunteers.
She has previously coached baseball and football.
