    Coach: Randy Brown
    Coach’s record: 134-70-10
    Key returners:
    Jimmy Bormolini, senior forward; scored 18 goals last year
    Jake Nye, senior defender; leader of the Lions’ back line
    Briscoe Elliott, junior goalkeeper; posted seven shutouts in 2011
    Mason Ruff, senior midfielder; recorded three goals and six assists last season
    Team Outlook: STRENGTHS — The Lions will go after a fourth straight Kaw Valley League Championship with a senior nucleus that knows what it takes to win.
    Besides the experience, Brown noted some added team speed and several highly-skilled juniors as other positive areas.
    WEAKNESSES —  Though Lansing has a quality group of returnees, the important position of center midfield has yet to be claimed.
    The squad will also need to stay healthy at certain spots due to depth issues and continue to develop as a team according to its coach.
    Big games: Home vs. Leavenworth on Sept. 6; Home vs. Mill Valley on Sept. 27
    Coach says: “Every game will be important as we prepare for the postseason championships.”
