Lansing had a busy Thursday with bowling and basketball competing.

The bowling team traveled to Park Lanes for their regional Thursday. 

Head coach Martha Bredehoeft said it was a “great day” for the teams.

The girls’ team won the regional with a score of 2,572. 

Kyah Surritte led the Lions with a high series of 588. 

Cynthia Phillips scored 510, Brynne Qualley had 443, Jenna Hagan scored 421, Paige Sorensen had 372 and Aubree Dutton scored 330. 

Surritte was also the top individual bowler for the regional. 

Phillips was second, Qualley was ninth and Hagan was 11th.

On the boys’ side, the Lions finished third with 2,864. 

Piper won the regional with 3,141 and De Soto was second with 3,092.

Hayden Hurley led Lansing with a high series of 631. 

Dakota Sill had 576, Kenden Coleman scored 488, Cody VanderStaay had 485, Wes Miros scored 477 and Garrett Carl had 430. 

Hurley finished as the second-highest individual bowler behind Sean Cauthron of De Soto. Sill was sixth. 

Both teams qualified for the state tournament in Wichita next Friday at Northrock Lanes. 

The state tournament will start at 8:25 a.m. with the parade of athletes. 

Bowlers who had a 300 game, 800 high series or regional champion bowlers will be honored. Competition will start at 8:50 a.m. 

The boys’ competition will start with the parade of athletes at 1:15 p.m. before the competition starts at 1:40 p.m.



Lansing also competed Thursday night in basketball at De Soto. 

It was the third game in four days for the Lions after last weekend’s weather delayed the Friday game against De Soto and Saturday game against Leavenworth.

In the girls’ game, the Wildcats jumped out 17-10 on the Lions after the first quarter. 

De Soto extended the lead to 29-21 at halftime. Both teams scored 13 in the third with De Soto up 42-34 entering the fourth before De Soto won 53-44. 

Gerenda Smith led the team with 20 points and seven rebounds. 

Jaclyn Brooks scored 11 points, four rebounds and four assists. Head coach KC Simmons said the Lions played with good energy but did not get the result the team wanted.

“(Thursday) night vs. DeSoto we played with good energy and did some nice things at both ends of the floor but didn’t quite get the result we wanted,” Simmons said. “We dug ourselves an early hole and just couldn’t climb out of it. We did a good job weathering their storm and responding with some big stops, but had too many key possessions where we came up empty.”

In the boys’ game, the Lions fell behind 11-9 after the first quarter before taking a 20-19 halftime lead. 

De Soto would score 29 points to Lansing’s 22 in the second half to take the win 48-42. Lansing struggled shooting the ball Thursday shooting 28.3 percent compared to 54.3 from De Soto. Head coach Jason Jones said the team did what they needed on defense, but it is tough to win when the team doesn’t shoot well.

“Did everything we needed in terms of our defense to be in a position to win,” Jones said. “Tough to win when you go 13-48 from the floor. We have to find a way to put it all together in the same game.”

Logan Barnard led the Lions with 12 points. Peyton Basler scored 11. 

Lansing continued play Friday night when they hosted Shawnee Heights for their fourth game in five days for the final game of the regular season before hitting the road for both sub-state games next week.
