(Editor’s Note: In Saturday’s edition of The Times-Gazette the Sports page led with the headline Lions earn FAC Championship. This is incorrect and should have read Lions earn SHAC Championship and has been corrected in the headline above. Also information available at time of press had the Lions winning with a score of 121 points and the Lady Lions second with 111 points, both totals are wrong and have been corrected and reprinted here.)
