From comic books to donuts, Alexandrians have been going all out for the Olympics this year — particularly with T.C. Williams High School graduate Noah Lyles competing in the 200 meter race.
Next week, Lyles’ alma mater — now called Alexandria City High School — will host a viewing party for the Olympic field day.
Proud to host a watch party for @LylesNoah at ACHS for his debut in Tokyo! Come support Noah and the Lyles Brothers Sports Foundation! Tixx are limited and required – see flyer for details! @sunshine182225 @josephus_lyles @TheCityAD @ACPSk12 @DrHutchings pic.twitter.com/t65yiJwVXF

The party will run from 8-10:30 p.m. at Alexandria City High School (3330 King Street). There will also be door prizes and raffles to be won.
Attendance is limited and tickets are required. Guests will be required to wear face masks. The event is free but a voluntary donation to the Lyles Foundation non-profit is encouraged.
Lyles isn’t the only Alexandrian competing in the Olympics. Local boxer Troy Isley also won his first boxing match at the Olympics earlier this week. Isley’s second match is tomorrow (Thursday).
Alexandria City High School is the place to be next Monday night. I'll be describing the Noah Lyles watch party event in more detail @VaPrepsRivals. https://t.co/Ju7HvhEmtA
