LHS sports face loaded Tuesday
Lansing baseball, softball, girls soccer all in regional action Tuesday
For those hoping to attend all of Lansing High's baseball, softball and girls soccer regional games, good luck with that one. All three LHS teams will be in action Tuesday, and they all will be playing at approximately the same time - in three diffferent locations.
Lansing's teams learned their postseason fate Saturday morning at seeding meetings. The baseball and softball meetings were at Turner High School. The soccer meeting was at Olathe East.
At Turner, LHS baseball coach Troy Andrews came up on the short end of a coin toss to determine the No. 2- and No. 3-seed teams. Therefore, Lansing is the No. 3-seed and will compete in a Tuesday regional at Turner Middle School, 1312 S. 55th St. in Kansas City, Kan. Lansing (13-7) will play No. 6-seed Washington (6-11) at 4:30 p.m. A victory there would put LHS in the 7 p.m. title game against the winner of Turner (13-7) and Highland Park (3-15).
After the baseball brackets were set, LHS softball coach Terry Cornett had to participate in a coin toss to sort out the softball bracket. Lansing won the coin toss and earned the No. 2-seed. That means LHS will play host to a regional on Tuesday at Lansing City Park. Lansing (14-6) will play Highland Park (4-16) at 4 p.m. A victory there will put the Lions in the 6 p.m. title game against the winner of Topeka Seaman (14-6) and Washington (4-8).
Meanwhile, LHS girls soccer coach Rob Elkins was in Olathe at the Northeast Kansas soccer regional meeting. Lansing earned a No. 7-seed because of its 8-6-2 record. As a result, LHS will go on the road for a 6 p.m. Tuesday game at No. 6-seed De Soto (8-5-2). The winner of that game likely will play No. 1-seed St. Thomas Aquinas at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at STA. The Saints are the No. 1-ranked team in Kansas' all-class poll, ranked No. 10 nationally by Student Sports Magazine and No. 16 nationally by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.
