Lansing Softball

On a hot and humid night Tuesday at the Tompkins Cortland Community College softball complex, the Lansing 14U travel team suffered their first loss of the season by 1 run.

The Lansing team started out strong behind good pitching from Lindsey Fish and great defense led by veteran catcher Iris Boreman. In the top of the 2nd, Boreman started the Lansing offense off with a well-placed double to left center field which was followed up by an epic 9-pitch at bat by Brooklyn Walker, where she fouled off 6 pitches and took the count to full before hitting a hard ground ball between short and third, scoring Boreman. Zoe Wierson and Jaeda Broaster each had quality at bats, plating Walker and scoring runs on aggressive base running.

posticon Lansing 12U Travel Softball Wins Home Opener

School's out, graduations have happened and summer recess has started. These things mean one thing in Lansing and that one thing is travel softball. The girls of the Lansing 12 and Under softball team, which is comprised of girls from grade 5, 6 and 7, started their summer campaign on a beautiful Monday night on Christopher Field, against the visiting Moravia 12U team. As the girls took the diamond there was a nervousness amongst the young players on both sides, however; once the first pitch was thrown the nerves quickly changed to excitement.

Lansing hurler, Alana Knapp-Ward took the mound and started the game with a strike and I’m sure that the cheering could be heard all the way down to Myers Park. The 1st inning ended in a 0 – 0 tie, but that was quickly broken as Moravia jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the top half of the 2nd. Lansing responded in the bottom of the inning putting up 5 runs, which ended with heads up base running by Lillee Gould and Emma Best with stolen bases.

11 Lansing Girls Compete at 2018 NYSPHSAA Track & Field Championships

The bus pulled out early on Friday morning, loaded with eleven girls and their coaches. En route to the 2018 NYSPHSAA Track & Field Championships at Cicero-North Syracuse High School, the girls were in high spirits, with music playing and hair being braided as is customary before each meet. But there was no denying that this meet was different – New York is one of the most competitive states for track and field in the nation, and the Ladycats had their sights set on strong performances in what they knew would be a fiercely competitive landscape.

Last week, 25 runners, jumpers, and throwers represented Lansing at the Section IV State Qualifier meet. It's an accomplishment to get to this meet, with athletes being admitted in one of three ways: competitors must have finished in the top three at the Section IV Class A/B/C/D meets OR earned an automatic time/mark during the season OR earned a provisional mark and been high enough in the rankings to fill in one of the remaining 18 or 24 positions after all the automatic qualifiers were admitted.

Over two days, the best track and field athletes of Section IV compete against each other for a coveted entry into the NYSPHSAA championships. The State Qualifier meet, held at Union-Endicott High School, serves not only as a true sectional championship for the individuals competing, pitting large and small school athletes against each other in events, but also as the required point of entry to the state meet. To advance to "states," athletes must be the top finisher in his/her division in the event – or be the next highest finisher who has the state standard. A maximum of two athletes/relay teams per event per division may advance. In other words: the pressure is on and the competition is fierce.

The Lansing girls captured their second consecutive IAC Large School title after a two-day competition and followed it up with securing their second consecutive Section IV Class C Championship victory. Last year, the battle for the IAC title was intense, with the Ladycats winning over a close second-place Newark Valley. This year, the IAC win for Lansing was decisive as the blue and gold girls outscored the Cardinals by 52 points. In a more closely contested meet at the Section IV Class C Championships, with points spread across 16 teams, the girls of Lansing found themselves waiting for the final announcement of the ending scores, 23 points ahead of Chenango Valley. 



The boys team was tied with Trumansburg for third at the end of the first day of IAC competition, only 6 points away from the top spot.  It looked to be a close race between the top four large schools.  With the Raiders stepping up the competition on Day 2, the young Bobcats fell to 4th place with their eyes on capturing this title in the future.  The Raiders would win the boys competition by 34 points with Waverly (81 points) taking second and Dryden (75 points) in third.  Lansing was just 4 points behind them with 71 points. At sectionals, many Bobcats found their way to the podium, but Trumansburg was dominant, scoring 128 points – 46 points ahead of Union Springs. There were only four points separating 3rd place Chenango Valley from 5th place Lansing.

The preseason was scheduled to be several weeks long – and then was extended due to meet postponements and cancellations when Mother Nature just wasn't ready to welcome spring weather. But with some sunny days and slightly warmer temperatures finally rolling in, the varsity track and field squads now have two dual meets and two invitationals under their belts along with several wins, numerous personal best and state qualifier standards, and a lot of motivation to achieve their season goals.

The Bobcats' first meet of the season was a home meet versus Groton and Moravia. The program honored their twelve senior athletes before events began and then went on to sweep the competition with both the boys and girls teams winning against their opponents:

posticon Lansing Pool and Gyms Likely Closed For The Summer

Lansing Superintendent of Schools Chris Pettograsso told the Board of Education Monday that the Lansing High School pool is likely to be closed for yet another summer.  After years of remediating what may have been shoddy work, the pool was finally reopened last August.  But Pettograsso says that a new construction project may force the pool to be closed for the summer, even though no work is being done on the pool itself.

"Again, we're worried about our pool being open for the summer, which was a big disappointment for us," she said. "It was the one thing we wanted to make sure of, because it's been a couple of years since we've been able to offer summer programming in-house."
