Rails Head to State Meet!

Sub :60 Club – new member.
Top 5 – new additions.
School records – broken.
State Meet – QUALIFIED!

That impressive list was accomplished by the Rails at the Regional Swimming and Diving meet this past week.

The diving portion of the meet was held Thursday, October 30. Lincoln had two divers in attendance, Haley Allen and Jolynn Harris. Haley was aiming to see multiple sixes from the judges and she succeeded. She dove well and saw improved scores on several of her dives! Meanwhile, Jolynn had her sights set on state. Her final score of 447 is a new 11 dive school record, qualified her for State and has her ranked 10th. Her highest scoring dive  (Reverse 2SS) was worth almost 52 points!

The swimming portion of the meet was held Saturday, November 1. The Rails swam well! The team dropped 2.3 seconds per 100 yards, an outstanding taper stat. Most importantly – the Rails will be represented at the State! Check out some highlights below.
