Congratulations to our modified athletes on a fantastic season!!
Modified competed at the Trumansburg Golf Course for the first end-of-year IAC modified invitational to be held as a separate event from the varsity IAC championships, and the mod athletes from all schools showed up to race fast! The course was just short of 1.5 miles, measuring 1.45 miles according to the map we were given. Complete results can be found here.
Domenica, Sydney, Aiden, and Dylan were all recognized for their top ten finishes! Girls team came in 3rd and the boys were 4th. Well done!! For many of our athletes, their split averages at this meet represent their fastest average racing time of the season!
Thanks to all of our modified families for your support and as special shout out to Cassy Rooney-Monger for capturing so many wonderful modified XC moments including those below!
Kudos to our athletes who ran to personal records or made it onto the awards stands at the Marathon Invitational! Emmy ran to 7th and Kinsley to 12th in the seeded varsity girls race, leading the team to a fifth place finish. Domenica took 7th in the modified girls race as the team ran to 4th place. Varsity boys took 7th in the unseeded race and modified boys were 8th. Complete results here.

We ventured back to Section III for the Tully Invitational this weekend. Tully's own Brooke Rauber is one of the top distance runners in the nation, and her school hosted a high-quality invitational for regional large and small schools. In the combined small/large school JV race, the Lansing boys took home a third place plaque. The varsity girls took 6th place and varsity boys took 7th. Complete results available here.

It was the first day of October but felt like August! On a hot and humid day, the Bobcats toed the line alongside Waverly, Newark Valley, Whitney Point, and Dryden as the Lions hosted their only home meet of the season on a course that saw it's high school debut. The varsity girls were able to secure a team win even while running without two of their runners, and Aiden Hathorn was the first to cross the line in the modified race. Varsity boys were 4th. Modified boys were third and modified girls were second.
A quick drive home and the bus pulled up to our first ever "Senior Surprise!" With no home meet of our own, the Lansing XC community as well as friends of the program and the boys soccer team who had just returned home from a 10-0 win away all gathered to greet our unsuspecting seniors as we kicked off a senior night at the high school.
