Boy Baseball Takes on LV Again After a 13-0 Win

By Riley Phillips

On Friday night the boy baseball team took on one of their biggest rivals, The Leavenworth Pioneers. The Lions came out victorious with a score of 13-0. This game was extra important for Senior Dylan McLain, who transferred to Lansing from Leavenworth at the beginning of the school year. “It was an amazing feeling. After getting a lot of backlash for leaving, then knowing that you made the right decision to after beating them by that much. It was just a great feeling,” said McLain. Senior Derrick Williamson pitched the entire game, leaving the Pioneers scoreless. Senior Dakota Sill went 3-3 at the plate. Sophomore Peyton Basler, Seniors Caleb Adams, Dylan McLain, and Logan Barnard were 2-3. These are just a few of the major contribution to taking home the win.

The boys will face the Pioneers once again on Tuesday at 5 on Leavenworth’s turf. “We all feel really confident in having the same results as Friday, but we know that they are going to fight and we just have to play like we did on Friday to get the win,” said Senior Caleb Adams. The boys have a really good chance of going to state this year, with ten returning varsity seniors. It seems as if they are going to be the team to beat.

Come out this Tuesday at 5 to watch the Lions defeat the Pioneers once again!

The Lion’s Pad Grand Re-Opening

The Flash Sale Week

The Lion’s Pad is Lansing High’s own store and is best known for their spirit wear, T-shirts during basketball season, and decorative scarves in the winter. Wanting to get more of a welcoming vibe, the Lions Pad has been under construction and reopened on March 25. To bring the lost attention back to the store the School Bases Enterprise classroom held a flash sale. “We wanted something that would attract the attention of our customers,” said Senior Teagan Vaughn, a student that helped with the remodeling steps. The remodeling included brainstorming and painting sessions during the School Based Enterprise classes.

The store included many noticeable and many not so noticeable changes. “No regrets really. We took a leap of faith with our pistachio color because it’s not a neutral color,” said Dustin Myers, business teacher and SBE adviser at Lansing High School. Other noticeable changes included a hand painted chalkboard and the rearrangement of the furniture inside the store. Some of the more subtle changes were product rotation and a music speaker. Many students visited on the opening day.

“We wanted something new that our customers haven’t seen before,” said Senior Nicole Welling and student in the SBEnterprise class. The turnout was well, according to Myers. He claims many students that visited liked the new changes and the new wall colors. The flash sale drew in customers as well, one of their selling techniques.

DECA students from Lansing High School get ready for Orlando, Florida

Thirteen students are getting the chance to go DECA Nationals. “The desire of the students to improve their leadership and business skills is what I attribute our success with,” said DECA sponsor Dustin Myers. Lansing DECA will be heading to Nationals yet again for their 13 consecutive year. According to Myers, this year nationals will take place in Orlando, Florida from April 27 to May 2. Each person is going for different events. They can compete in leadership academies, projects and role plays. Majority of the students going are competing in projects. Many of the students are doing fundraising opportunities to raise money for their trip to nationals. “I am selling chocolate bars, doing market day and working concession stands to raise money,” said sophomore Camden Maestas. Market day is a great opportunity for students to help fund their trip. They get the opportunity to sell food and drinks at school lunches to hopefully make money. Another way the students are able to make money, is through the cafe and the school store. Many students work early mornings during the week in the cafe. According to sophomore Karis Jones, working in the cafe is one of the best ways to fundraise for nationals

This year will be the last time several students get to attend nationals before they graduate. Senior Nicole Welling is one of these seniors. “DECA has really made me enjoy the business and marketing aspects of life and because of that I was accepted into the college of business at K-State, where I will be studying marketing,” said Welling. All of these seniors have been working incredibly hard to make their last nationals trip the best and most memorable. For many of the seniors, DECA has influenced what they will be doing in their future. “It’s been sad and exciting because I’ve been able to see the growth I’ve made by qualifying each year and it’s exciting to be with a fun group of people,” Welling said.

Jazz-a-que

“Jazz-a-Que is an ongoing tradition that allows jazz bands from both the middle school and high school to be showcased as they perform and present charts they have worked extremely hard on. Being in the top jazz band, Screamin’ Lions, and an active bands student, it is very rewarding to fund raise and see that the proceeds go directly back to the band program,” said Junior Sarah Wilson when asked ahout Jazz-a-Que and how she felt abut the fundraiser.
