Men’s Team Starts Season with a Win!

The Lincoln men’s team had their first meet of the season Tuesday (11/25) at home against Carroll. It proved to be an exciting one too. The meet had four lead changes, including a tie at one point! Heading into the 400 Free Relay, the teams were in a “winner take all” situation. The Rails prevailed, swimming a fast 3:37.02! That’s just a second off last season’s conference meet time!

Final Score
Lincoln: 91
Carroll: 79

Meet Highlights
The guys took home several first places and even took first, second and third in the 500 Free! While we can’t recognize everyone, here’s a look at a few meet highlights:

  • Medley Relay (Greenwood, Worth, Chidley, Blaylock) took first with a 1:48.93
  • Cooper Worth took first place in both individuals, the 200 IM (2:17.73) and 100 Breaststroke (1:09.46)
  • Nick Worthington’s 6:03.25 500 Free time was over a minute faster than in practice a week ago! It also earned him third place!
  • Tom Chidley’s 100 Fly time of 58.63 took first place and is a second faster than his taper time last year.
  • 400 Free Relay (Greenwood, Chidley, Worth, Belden) was a 3:37.02. Belden anchored the race in a 51:03!
