Coming off a two-game split in the Oneonta Festival this weekend where the Bobcats fell to Goshen and beat Cincinnatus, Lansing won its home opener against Newark Valley. Playing their third game in a row, the Bobcats came out a little slow. Going about their game plan Lansing controlled the ball in the midfield, but couldn't find the final connection for a goal. The Cardinal's defense kept the crosses from finding the correct head and didn't allow many clean shots from the middle of the field. Newark Valley's keeper, made numerous diving saves, even pushing one up to hit the crossbar and out.

Cross after cross got rejected or headed out, until Lansing midfielder Langston Hopkins rose above his defender to head in the game's first goal on a beautiful cross by Lansing Miller. A few minutes later the Bobcats would add to their lead on a shot by Aidan Huslebosch that took its time rolling over the line and another on a corner kick that was cleaned up by sophomore Joe Besemer.

The Lansing Bobcats modified and varsity cross-country teams hit the road on Tuesday, September 12, for their first meet of the season. After a month of training with six-day-a-week, early-morning practices, and trial runs at local 5K community races in Groton and Dryden, the Bobcats were ready for this first IAC league event at Newark Valley. Elmira Notre Dame also brought runners to the race to make it a three-school affair.

On the girls' side, the lady Bobcats posted a pair of first-place finishes—with Mikaela Garcia winning the varsity girls' race at 21:51.4 and Kinsley Jacobs winning the modified girls' race at 10:29.4. In the varsity race, Leigh Miller finished 7th out of 19, posting a time of 24:33.2.

First year Varsity football coaches Brett Hotchkiss and Miles Levesque are teamed as co-head coaches for this 2017 campaign. Along with Assistant coach Matt Hartz all three will be able to bring their experience and enthusiasm for the game to each of the 23 players on the roster.

The first game was a trip north to Moravia on a sunny Saturday. Lansing won the initial coin toss and opted to begin with the defense and kicked off to start the season. Garrett Bell booted the football deep and pinned Moravia down early. This set up excellent field possession for the Bobcats first possession of the season that resulted in a 29 yard scoring run by Luke Winslow. Darryl Fleming reached the end zone just before half to give the Cats a 23-14 lead.

posticon Are You a Sports Reporter?


Print
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.
