Oct312014
football1029 12 120#1 Greg LeeIf you were not at Sobus field this past Friday, you missed one of the most exciting, best played, high school football games so far this year.  Two teams that have been battling each other for years, supported strongly by each of their communities, met for what can only be described as combat.
 
The Watkins Glen Senecas came into Lansing tied with Waverly at the two spot in Division V, with an overall record of five wins and one loss and a division record of two wins and one loss.  If they beat Lansing, they would continue on to the post season, sealing a second place ranking and if Waverly was defeated by Dryden the Senecas earn a spot at the top as division V champions.  If they lose, their season is over and they go home.

Are You a Sports Reporter?

Are You a Sports Reporter?

 

football1Why 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 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. In fact 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 ever could 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 http://news.lansingstar.com/

The many Varsity coaches that have contributed to the Star have been outstanding in this regard. 

Individual contributors 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 Lansing sports fan it's a great expression of your love for sports.
