Fall sports are heading into postseason play and we take a look back at how each sports’ regular season went.
The Lions have had some tough luck on the field so far this year. Lansing has had 4 losses by 9 points or less including one in overtime to Piper; posting a 2-5 record on the year and 2-3 record in the KVL with one game left before the playoffs. Right now Lansing is sitting as the 12 seed in the playoffs.
“We’ve gotten better over the course of the year, “ senior Joe Dill said. “But, we gotta get better; now it’s win or go home.”
The Lady Lions have had a very successful season once again winning the KVL for forth straight year. Lansing posted a 31-6 record on the year and a 6-0 record in the KVL. The Lady Lions start regionals on Saturday, October 21 at Leavenworth High School; taking on Highland Park at 2 PM.
“We are very excited and hoping to come out strong and determined to get the season we want,” senior Lacey Angello said. “We have been waiting for this day so long and out coach has prepared us in the best way possible.”
The Lions have struggled on the pitch in the 2017 season posting a record of 0-16 on the year and a 0-6 record in the KVL. Though, the Lions have improved since the hiring of new coach Ryan Yedlinski midway through the season. Regional play for the Lions starts on Monday, October 23.
“We really need to win bad,” senior Omero Vazquez said. “We’ve been improving over the year and we’ve gotten a lot better.”
The Lions season had been a successful one so far. To finish off a successful regular season the girls finished second and the boys finished first at the KVL meet at WYCO Park to end the regular season on a high note. Regionals are on Saturday, October 21 at Wyandotte County Park in Kansas City.
“Regionals is looking good,” junior JT Lozenski “We have a good chance to win and we’re carrying momentum from the league meet into regionals.”
The Lady Lions tennis season is over following a 15th place finish at state. Juniors Mirinda Lowery, Darby Mance, and Trinity Hall all qualified for state for the Lions while Hall finished in the top twelve at state in singles.
“The season was really fun,” Lowery said. “State was a really good time and we’re looking to bring more people to it next year.”
