Reggie started the women's team as a club team in 1971, and one year later it became a varsity sport at Cornell. Reggie's sister Reenie Baker Sandsted started the women's team at Boston College.

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced Tuesday that the Syracuse Mets are committing to sign a lease extension to call Syracuse home for at least 25 years. New York State is committing $12.5 million to Onondaga County's major renovation project at NBT Bank Stadium in Syracuse, in preparation for the arrival of the Mets' minor league franchise in 2019. The $26.25 million project will result in an improved experience for dedicated baseball fans and visitors while ensuring the Mets' farm-team will stay in Syracuse until at least 2043. The Governor also announced the team has been renamed and will now be known as the "Syracuse Mets."

"Baseball has been ingrained in Syracuse's history for more than 80 years, and this critically important investment will ensure that it remains an 'amazin' part of this community's future for decades to come," Cuomo said. "By renovating this stadium, we are going to attract new and old fans alike, generate economic activity and increase tourism across the region and help foster the next generation of baseball greats."

Homecoming was part of a capping of the Lansing HS spirit week that set the stage for a Sobus Field showdown on a clear night. The Oxford Blackhawks brought their 2-1 record to take on the undefeated Bobcats football team. The stands and the hillside path to the concessions were lined with spectators. Lansing youth flag and tackle football players and coaches lined the field for the varsity team entry.

Many in the crowd were curious of the of the game action and flow of this years 8-man team. That only means 8 players at one time on the field instead of the typical eleven. The overall player roster consists of 19 members. True to form of the previous couple of games the Bobcats got out to a quick start. Those at the concessions could have missed the two scores Lansing had in its first three offensive plays. Luke Winslow (10 x 204) accounted for Lansing's first four scores with runs of at least 50 yards on three of them.

In unseasonably warm temperatures and on a golf course that was softened by lots of recent rain, the Lansing Ladycats ran away with their second consecutive IAC Division II title on Tuesday, October 9. The girls team was led by Emmaline Jackson '21 and Catie Eisenhut '20. Last year, Jackson was runner-up and this year, she claimed the individual title with her teammate, Eisenhut, just 0.1 seconds behind her.

Scoring only 20 points (low score wins in cross country; 15 is a perfect score), the Lansing girls were 17 points ahead of runner-up Trumansburg. Kinsley Jacobs '23 set the modified course record last year and finished as Lansing's third runner, fourth overall. Teresa Garcia '20 and Eden Jackson '19 rounded our Lansing's scoring five with Hana Thibault '21 and Allison Keefe '19 completing their team of seven – all of whom came across the finish line before third place Moravia's second runner.

With this being the first year of the 8-man football schedule for Lansing, gone are most short trips to local rivals of say Groton and Dryden. A new opponent 1.5 hours east in Unadilla Valley hosted the Bobcats. One of the Lansing communities biggest fans and popular bus drivers Gary Christopher fulfilled the team travel duties for the Friday night showdown. The crisp night in the Valley found cool conditions, a low lying fog directly over the field for much of the game, and a country concession stand filled with comfort foods of ziti, mac-n-cheese, and pulled pork to name a few. A third win of the season would make it certainly 'all good in the valley'.

Lansing tailback Luke Winslow (6 x 58, 2TD) scored on a 16 yard run in the first and a successful PAT made it 7-0. Wideout Ben Vincent took a slant pass from QB Garrett Bell for a 45 yard score a couple minutes later. Bell capped the first quarter scoring with a 4 yard keeper and a 19-0 lead after one.

Coaches always preach you gotta have a nose for the ball. You need to anticipate. Mostly it comes instinctively. Lansing middle linebacker Griffen Nelson has turned his defensive prowess into three touchdowns in the first two games. Ins the young seasons second 8-man game against the Newfield Trojans Nelson had interception returns for touchdowns of 22 and 45 yards. A nose for the ball puts you in the right place at the right time.

On a windy Friday evening Lansing had the lead 14-0 after one quarter in their second game of the season. Gabe Santiago and Nelson stopped a Newfield reverse attempt and set the tone early. Other highlights had Quarterback Garrett Bell (2TD , 5 PAT) score on a sneak play five just seconds into the second quarter. Brothers Mason and Tucker Butler provided defensive line pressure that helped keep a Trojan offense that scored 60 points the week prior in check. The 34 point second quarter for the Bobcats saw Luke Winslow return a punt for a TD only to be called back by a penalty.

A new era began last Friday evening in Elmira's southside when the 8-man division football rivals suited up for a heated and humid contest. Elmira Notre Dame (END) and Lansing are no strangers to rivalries spanning the athletic spectrum including basketball and soccer. Players, coaches and fans were not so sure what to expect with three less players on each side of the ball but one thing for sure it was expected to be a close game throughout.

First play of the game and of the year had Lansing QB Garrett Bell (2-10-2, 80 yards) make a quick pass to the left flat for Brad Lehr who footed it for a net 20 yard gain. END made good on a flee flicker for a 45 yard TD and the 6-0 lead. Mason Butler recovered a fumble at the END 27 but Lansing could not make good.
