The place to be Saturday night was at Charles O Dickens High School watching the Lansing Bobcats take on the Trumansburg Raiders under the lights on Tarbell Field. In what was billed as the game of the weekend, this one did not disappoint. Trumansburg kicked off and away we went.

Ten minutes in Lansing had its first real chance from a great penetrating cross by Captain Josh Zajac. After a pass back from striker Taylor Overton, Zajac put a long cross in behind Trumansburg's left back to where right midfielder Langston Hopkins could use his speed to beat the defender. He did just that, took a touch towards goal, but went wide left with his shot.

posticon Lansing XC Keeps Racking Up Wins

Sports | Friday, September 22, 2017 | By Gus Axelson Print
Cross Country Meet at Trumansburg

The Lansing cross country teams kept up their momentum this fall with more wins and more 1st place awards in the second week of season.

On a balmy Saturday Sept. 16 that felt more like August, the Lansing varsity teams traveled up to Wayne High School near Rochester for a mega meet—the Wayne Pre-State Invitational involving 20 schools and more than 140 runners in each race at Lansing's division. Despite the crowded field, both the Bobcat boys and girls teams turned in impressive showings. On the boys' side, Zoli Csaki (19:15.10), Jack Thomas (19:32.58), Liam Hulsebosch (19:35.61), Torsten Gartenberg (20:09.99), and Teddy Brenner (22:39.55) comprised the Bobcats' top 5 scorers, with Anders Axelson and Ben Caveney also finishing the race. As a team, the Lansing boys finished 15th of 20 teams, with Watkins Glen (the top-ranked XC team at Class C in New York) taking 1st place. On the girls' side, Mikaela Garcia (21:32.97) tallied a very impressive 18th place out of 144 runners, with Leigh Miller (23:21.31), Allison Keefe (24:05.34), Teresa Garcia (24:08.79), and Hana Thibault (26:49.36) also scoring for their team to put the Lady Bobcats at 7th out of 19 teams competing.

posticon Are You a Sports Reporter?

football1We'll Make This Simple: We do not have the resources to cover sports, but you can help.  Lansing loves sports.  Our kids work hard and deserve the recognition.  So we do what we can, which is provide a venue for parents, coaches, fans or players to spend a short time writing bout our wonderful Lansing teams in school and in the Town Recreation Department.

Why We Need You: By the numbers we know our readers love to read about Lansing sports.  During the Varsity season the Sports page is as popular as our News and Around Town pages.  But with one staff reporter for all topics in our small publication the only way we can cover sports at all is if volunteer writers send in reports.

We would love to expand our sports coverage to reports on club sports, more Rec Department sports news, and other schools that Lansing students attend, such as Ithaca High School, club teams, or New Roots High School.

Coaches: We get many wonderful articles from coaches who have been really great about taking the time to write up theoir team's accomplishments.  If you are a coach, we love getting sports news from you!

Contributors don't have to be coaches. The Star welcomes contributors of all ages from students to seniors.  The great benefit of having a parent, a student, or any interested person writing about a sport is that you speak the language of the sport and therefore you can connect to readers much better than our one harried reporter could ever do.

Writing a sports article doesn't have to be hard.  While we do work with a style guide,
the basics are simple.  Our writing guidelines can always be easily found at

The many Varsity coaches that have contributed to the Star have been outstanding in this regard.  Individual contributors, often parents of the players, have contributed over the years and have provided amazing in-depth coverage of Lansing athletes.  The Lansing Star is also grateful to Geoff Wright, who has generously advertised on our Sports page since the Star began publishing, just to support sports in Lansing.

Coverage in the Star gives our hard working athletes the recognition they deserve, and your contributions make them and you stars in the community.  For students the opportunity to be published in a local professional newspaper is valuable when you are compiling your resume to get into college, or looking for a job.  For parents its a way to showcase your kids and their teammates.  For any sports fan it's a great expression of your love for our local teams.
