What a night! 34 PRs for the Bobcats, 4 new program records, photo finishes, and excitement all around. Host Corning dominated the team scoring but the race for top small school was tight. Lansing girls came in third overall ahead of Waverly and Elmira Notre Dame with the Lansing boys taking 4th overall just 12.5 points behind Waverly and well ahead of the other small schools. With IACs and sectional championships quickly approaching, the upcoming competition looks to be impressive.

With our scheduled senior night meet versus Dryden and Trumansburg cancelled due to hail, tonight's divisional meet that would normally be unscored took on new meaning: the winners of the head-to-head matchups between Lansing/Dryden/Trumansburg would be named IAC North Division Champions. Despite a long weekend (Legends, SATs, prom!), the Bobcats showed up ready to put their best feet forward. The girls would leave Marathon victorious, ending their regular dual meet season with an undefeated 8-0 record, claiming the IAC Divisional title. The boys were divisional runner-ups to Dryden.

The 2023 Legends of the Night Invitational was hosted by Odessa-Montour. Dryden won both the boys and girls competition with the Lansing boys securing runner-up and the Lansing girls took third. It was a night of intense competition yielding some of the top performances in the IAC yet this season.
While it wasn't the senior night battle versus Dryden and Trumanburg that we expected, it certainly was a memorable evening! We had rain, lightning, thunder, insane wind, pounding hail, and more rain....
We had to postpone our dual meet scoring until next week when we head to Divisionals at Marathon. We'll have a "meet within a meet," pulling results from that competition to score out the head-to-head matchups of Lansing vs Dryden, Lansing vs TBurg, and Dryden vs TBurg.
Mother Nature did decide to cooperate enough to allow us to celebrate our seniors despite the meet cancellation. Our most sincere thanks to the seniors and their families for their contributions to our program and best of luck always!!!
