Bobcats Disarm the Spartans

 

football 1015ALast Saturday was an absolutely beautiful fall day, sunny, 60 and clear.  A day that Mother Nature doesn't allow us Northeasterners to get too accustom to this time of year.  At around 11:15 am, twenty six young men marched out of the locker room of the Lansing High school to load the equipment bags into the small gray van.  They then huddled around their Head coach, John Winslow, to listen and learn.  He never raised his voice.  He didn't speak long or lecture.  At no time did he say anything negative or derogatory.  What he did state was that today would not be like last Friday night.  Every game, from today on, they would be playing for the state championship.

The three and one, Lansing Bobcats boarded the bus knowing clearly that their mission today was to be successful, safe and victorious.  Forty one miles to the south, the players from Thomas A. Edison (TAE) were starting to arrive at their school.  The Spartans, with their one and four record, were preparing for battle and their homecoming.

Lansing Girls Soccer Defeats Marathon and Watkins

 

soccer girls1Freshman standout Kassie Riemer had a goal and an assist as the Lansing girls defeated Marathon 3-1 on Lansing’s Senior Recognition Night, October 9th.

Eight minutes into the game Riemer slotted a pass to senior Kristin Dake who one-touched a low drive to put Lansing on the board.  Lansing maintained most of the possession throughout the first half.  But 25 minutes into the game Marathon’s Allison O’Shea collected a loose ball at midfield and out-maneuvered two Lansing defenders.  O’Shea’s low shot from 20 yards tied the score at 1-1.

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.
