LHS Rails & Carroll Tigers Rivalry History

Rivalry History
When Coach Weber took over the program in 2005, the Rails were a young team. Carroll beat Lincoln handily by almost 100 points. But a year later, the Rails were a much stronger and faster team. The girls went to Carroll and had a fantastic meet. By the time the Tigers huddled up after the 50 free, it was too late. With outstanding performances, the Rails won a close one – coming down to the 400 Free Relay and the .10 second touch to victory. Lincoln won a total of three straight, 2006, 2007 & 2008.

In 2009, the Rails’ large senior class was gone and the program had to rebuild with young athletes. Carroll, meanwhile, was a strong and deep team. They won the next three years straight – 2009, 2010, and 2011.

In 2012, the meet was intense! Lincoln headed to Carroll ready to swim for win. But the Tigers weren’t giving up their winning streak without a fight. In the end, the Rails lost a close one. However, 2013 brought a Rails win which was the first time that class of seniors had ever beat Carroll and 2014 was another victory for the Rails. This put the series tied at 5-5. But in 2015, the Tigers rallied in the winner take-all 400 Free Relay to edge out a victory of the Rails.

2016 was a chance for the Rails to tie the all-time win record at 6-6! And the Rails got their redemption, as the team pulled out their own victory in another winner take-all 400 Free Relay.
