Motlow won the TCCAA/Region VII regular season and tournament championships, finishing 16-5 overall and undefeated in conference play, and Lyon was named conference and district Coach of the Year.

Under Lyon's leadership, Madisen Hodges, Molley McElhiney, and Leigha Resendiz earned NJCAA 3rd Team All-Academic honors. Kristen Gasaway set a single-season school record with 20 goals and was named NJCAA 2nd Team All-American.

After beginning the Motlow soccer program in 2017, Lyon has compiled a 69-28-4 overall record, winning four regular-season conference titles and three tournament championships.
