The Lansing Girls Cross-Country team continued to dominate the local XC scene at the Auburn Invitational last Saturday Oct. 13, with junior Catie Eisenhut and sophomore Emmaline Jackson finishing one-two for the Lady Bobcats to lead the team to a first place trophy. The Lansing XC modified boys brought home hardware as well, with a 3rd place trophy, while the Lansing varsity boys and modified girls both put finishers among the top 20 runners in their respective races.

Lansing XC head coach Becca Lovenheim was thrilled with the performance of all her athletes on the muddy 3.2-mile race course at Auburn: "Overall, the whole program saw 10 personal records set on a very wet, slippery course."

Diane Duthie - Lansing GalleryThe Cornell University Women's Ice Hockey Team started off their preseason with games against the Toronto Jr. Aeros and the National Women's Hockey League (NWHL) professional team Buffalo Beauts this past weekend. Cornell beat the Aeros 6-1 and the Beauts 5-2.

The ceremonial puck drop was performed by Lansing's own Regina Baker Robbins, Penney Mapes Cook, and Shelley Earle Sturges, all CUWIH alumnae. 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. Here are selected images from the Cornell vs Buffalo Beauts game.

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."

posticon 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

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.
