Lansing High School Volleyball Wins State Championship
LANSING, Kan. – A Metro High School volleyball team recently won a state championship in breathtaking fashion.
Lansing High School (38-1) has just put out a season of a massive 38-game winning streak that led to the Kansas 5A State Championship. A fabulous end to the state championship game on October 30th against the volleyball powerhouse St. James Academy sealed the season. The Lions came back from six points behind to overthrow the Thunder and win the school’s second state volleyball trophy.
“We were confident. We wouldn’t leave anything out on this floor. We wouldn’t regret it, ”said Lindsay Zych, Lansing’s sophomore coach.

Championship Point included a celebratory scene in the Salinas square where players and staff embraced in a tearful moment while the cameras rolled and loved ones cheered.
“There’s no better way to end this year,” said Kamyrn Ferris, Lansing Libero. “It was a very special moment in which everyone walked in with a big hug because the team made everything so special in the end.”
Lansing volleyball players remember the season opener against St. Thomas Aquinas, which was the Lions’ only loss that season, as the boost it needed for the club to outdo itself.
“We definitely got this game on our mind and said we would never feel like this again. We have to win and move on to prove ourselves all, ”said Cait Bishop, Lansing setter.
Despite the drama at the finish, the run of the Lions for the state title is no surprise for everyone. Lansing has won 66 games in just five losses in the last two seasons, and the Lions have made the state tournament four years in a row and finished no worse than third before winning it all.
