It might only be the second week of season, but the team already has a busy schedule! Below are key dates to remember for this week, with additional details about each event.
Team Pictures | Aug. 17 at 3:00PM – Wear your team t-shirt and denim blue jeans for team pictures. Pictures will start being taken promptly at 3:00PM, so please report at 2:50PM. We’ll start with individual photos. Then we’ll take the group photo followed by buddy photos (small groups of swimmer/divers). We will be shooting to have all photos done by 4:30PM, so we have time to take the poster picture. However, the sooner we get pictures completed, the sooner everyone can head to the Chicken Bowl and/or Norwalk’s Fall Fest. This does mean there is no afternoon practice on Thursday, but there is still morning practice.
Just a reminder that all photos will be uploaded to the online Shutterfly account. You can download and/or save any photos. Once uploaded, that information will be shared with everyone. This is also where all photos from the swim/dive meets will be added throughout the entire season. Parents – please plan to pick your daughters following the Chicken Bowl. We do not yet have a firm schedule for the Chicken Bowl walk.
Varsity Poster Picture | Aug. 17 following team pictures – Wear your team suit and warm-up bottoms. The photo will be a serious one against a cream background. If you are varsity team member, please plan to stay for the poster picture before getting ready to attend the Chicken Bowl and/or Norwalk Fall Fest.
LHS Chicken Bowl | Aug. 17 at 6:00PM – This long-time tradition for Lincoln athletics is the kickoff for all fall sports and all team members are required to attend (excluding those that need to attend the Norwalk Fall Fest). Please wear your team t-shirts to this event. All fall sports will be announced beginning promptly at 6:00PM with a football scrimmage to follow. The swim/dive team is traditionally announced early in the program and we expect t0 be done by 6:30PM. Coach Weber will say a few words about our team and the upcoming season and typically will announce the senior class by name. Please note, this is also a fundraiser for the school so there is an admission fee for all non-athletes, which does not include the cost of food. Parents – it is your responsibly to pick up your daughter from this event. Coaches will not be staying until the Chicken Bowl ends.
Norwalk Fall Fest | Aug. 17 at 6:00PM – This event is Norwalk High School’s kickoff for fall sports. Unfortunately, both the LHS Chicken Bowl and NHS Fall fest events are on the same night at the same time this year. Typically we try to coordinate having most (ideally all!) of the team there wearing Norwalk-colored t-shirts. Though this event was not required, being there shows great support for our Norwalk teammates who attend similar Lincoln events. Hopefully next year, we’ll be able to attend both events, rather than split the team to attend both. Enjoy Fall Fest Norwalk teammates!
Back-To-The-Board Dive Invite | August 21 at 5:00PM – The Rails are hosting this annual varsity diving invite. Diving warm-ups will start at 3:00PM. Monday’s afternoon practice will be lanes 1-4 only because the swim team will only have four lanes open for practice. We encourage all team members to stay for the meet to support the divers at their first competition of the season.
