A back and forth meet through out the evening at the Lincoln High School Pool meant a final relay event where the only place that mattered was first. With Lincoln up with one event left, it was a winner take all relay for both teams, and the Lincoln Rails came away with a one second win in the 400 freestyle relay to ensure the win! The relay team of Worth, Greenwood, Chidley, Belden set a season best time in the relay and moved in to the top 24 in the state for that event.
Lincoln Rails: 88
The Rails swim team is now 5-0 on the season in dual meets, with one meet remaining against conference foe Roosevelt. Following the last dual the team starts to concentrate on the championship portion of the season, including the Jim Voss Invitational, Conference Championship at Lincoln, Districts and then hopefully state!
We can’t recap all of the great performances, so here’s just a few:
- Medley Relay (Greenwood, Whitehead, Chidley, Worth) took first place with a season best 1:47.94
- Miguel Espinoza went a 2.08 in the 200 and 5.55 in the 500, swimming both events for the first time!
- Nicholas Worthington dropped 11 seconds in the 500, going a 5.47!
- Drew Garrett dropped 7 seconds in the IM with a time of 2.34!
- Tom Chidley won the fly with a season best time of 57.68
