Lansing made the trip out to Sidney High School for the second annual Doug Quinney Invitational where 24 teams would compete at the venue for the upcoming Section 4 Class C Championship Meet (May 26).  Emma Dhimitri stood on the awards stand in all four of her events.  She set a new meet record of 16.54 seconds with her win in the 100M hurdles and followed this up with second place in the 400M hurdles, 4th place in the triple jump, and a speedy anchor leg of the 4th place 4x400M relay (which also included Mikaela Garcia, Leigh Miller, and Catie Eisenhut).  Eisenhut also set a meet record, running to the win in the 1500M with a time of 5:08.48.

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 http://news.lansingstar.com/

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.
