The Varsity Football Team defeated the Basehor Bobcats at their first home game on Friday, September 7. The Lions played very well through the continuous rain and ended up victorious. Junior, Luke Schneider, scored the final touchdown in the fourth quarter, putting the Lions ahead 14-13. “It felt good to end up with a win because Lansing usually gives up, but we stayed in it and the results were positive,” said senior Captain, Konner McQuillan. The support that the Lions received from the student section was beyond amazing. The spirit they had showed what being Lion is all about. It may have been cold and rainy, yet everyone persevered through.
On Thursday, September 13 the Lions took on Shawnee Mission South and unfortunately lost 27-0. “We just looked slow and out of it, kind of like no one wanted to be there,” said McQuillan. Yet, the Lions have a chance to redeem themselves this Friday, September 21, at home! If the Lions receive the same support and play with the same heart as when they played the Bobcats, a win can be seen in their future.
