Thursday (1/14) marks the last home meet for the senior guys. It’s a night to celebrate their dedication to the team and Lincoln High School swimming!
The night is an exciting one as the crowd cheers for them and wishes them farewell. But it’s also a little bittersweet, as they leave behind good friends, the thrill of close meets and the team. It’s the night they realize next November won’t involve 5:45 a.m. practices or being at the pool until after 5:00 p.m. at night, instead it will be about enjoying their holidays uninterrupted by swimming for the first time in years!
The Rails will be swimming against their toughest opponent of the season, 12th ranked Roosevelt. The meet starts at 5:30 p.m. We’d love to have all our fans, families and alums there to cheer the senior guys on for their last home swim meet ever! Go Rails!
Senior Night Details
Senior parents should report to the pool deck immediately following the 50 Free.
Parents, you’ll be waiting behind the door that’s located by the diving board. To get there, go out the door on the far side of the stands (deep-end) and down a short set of stairs. Hang a right and you’ll see a door ahead, which you’ll go through. You’ll notice a long flight of stairs to your right, but don’t go up them.
The seniors are recognized mid-way through the meet at the break (approximately 6:00 p.m.). A brief biography about each senior will be read, as they are recognized by the crowd. Following Senior Night, there is a 10 minute break for warm-ups after which the meet will resume.
