Rails Top Ottumwa 124-55

The Rails were back at the Roundhouse last night to compete against the Ottumwa Bulldogs. Lincoln had several close races for first place, which made for an exciting meet! But the Rails depth ultimately prevailed for a 124-55 victory.

Plus – a little school history was made last night too! Jolynn Harris (sophomore) broke the 40 year old 6-dive school record set by Debbie Judish in 1975. The new school record is 266.90. Congratulations Jolynn!
