Rails Win Dual Meet vs. Polar Bears

The Rails traveled to North High School on Tuesday (9/22) to face a conference opponent in the Polar Bears. Lincoln swam to victory for the 11th consecutive year with a final score of 130-31.

This meet provided the unique opportunity for many swimmers to swim different events, including allowing several JV athletes to swim Varsity. Even though the girls had a tough practice Monday (9/21), there are still some great meet highlights to share.

The win puts the Rails overall record at 3-2, with a 2-1 record against conference opponents. (Note: The overall record excludes the Rails winning the Grinnell Invite).
