Tomkins County Lakers Defeat Tioga Center

 

baseball lakerslogoThe Lakers enter this game coming off of a 1-0 loss, last week to the Cayuga Storm.  Jared Strait pitch almost four innings of perfect ball, walked one batter and struck out eight over five innings of work.  The Storm threw seven different pitchers allowing the Lakers to knock at the door several times but they never let them in.  Finally in the bottom of the seventh inning the Storm had a runner on second with one out.  Smith drove the ball to left center scoring Wojo and winning the game in walk off fashion 1-0.

This game would be different. Strait started the ball rolling with a line drive single that was mishandled by the center fielder and allowed him to scoot to third.  Ben Kutler followed with a hard hit ball which the Tioga Short Stop couldn't handle.  Strait scored and Kutler arrived safe at first.  Tioga's Pitcher threw over to first a dozen times to keep Kutler close, afraid that he would steal.  It wasn't enough, Kutler stole second, then third.  After a base on balls by Pat Judd, a sacrifice bunt by Lansing Miller and a few more, hard hit balls by Jesse Richardson and Zack Kemp the Lakers took a 3-0 lead.  Kemp took the mound for the Lakers and was off to a great start, getting a ground out and a K with the first two batters.  The Dirtbags settled in, fought back and tied the game by scoring three runs off of an error, three singles and a solid triple.

TC Lakers Sink Moravia, 12-1

 

baseball lakerslogoThe Tompkins County Lakers may have gotten a late start on the season but they jumped off to an early lead in their first game and never looked back.  It was Walker versus Walker on the bump.  Each lefty pitcher throwing hard strikes.  The difference was three big Moravia errors and aggressive Lakers base running that placed the momentum in the Lakers dugout.  Zack Walker (Lakers) relied on strikeouts and a solid, error free defense having his back.

The speedy Jared Strait made it to first base on a dropped third strike that he never gave up on.  He then stole second which set him up to score on a well hit double by Conner Siracusa.  A disciplined at bat by Patrick Judd earned him a walk.  A couple of errors allowed Siracusa and Judd to score off of hard hits by Jesse Richardson and Corbin Atkins.  Zach Sherwood put the bat on the ball and scored Richardson from third on a fielder's choice.  This put the Lakers up by four at the end of the first inning.

Elite Pros Expect Mixed Bags Of Big Bass At Cayuga Lake

Jun242016
fishing1Union Springs, N.Y. - The Bassmaster Elite Series season begins its "Northern Swing" next week with the Busch Beer Bassmaster Elite at Cayuga Lake, in Union Springs, N.Y., June 23-26.

As the nation's most prestigious bass fishing circuit heads to Northern waters, big smallmouth bass and Northern strain largemouth are primary targets for the touring pros. Cayuga Lake — the second largest of 11 Finger Lakes in east-central New York — is chock-full of both black bass species.

The long, narrow lake stretches nearly 40 miles north to south, averages about 1 1/2 miles in width and covers nearly 43,000 acres. Even with so much fishable water, the anglers will likely be sharing fishing spots as they focus on certain areas with abundant submerged vegetation.

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.
