The 2017 team is already working hard to prepare for their season which starts several months from now! The girls look to add depth and star power in many events for dual meets and the regionals meet. With a team that continues to build on last year’s depth, the Rails are looking forward to a successful season. The Rails aim to have a winning record, a run through the Metro Conference and a big trip to Marshalltown!
A Look Back At 2016
The 2016 Lincoln Girls swim team worked hard day in and day out to leave their mark in the history books at Lincoln High School. They were the most prepared team in Coach Weber’s tenure, as they had spent the previous 11 months participating in off-season training. The dedication to their sport paid off when they inked their names in eight Rails Top 5 All Times.
Grace Crady and Cat Dooley earned their sub :60 shirts for swimming. While Haley Allen and Chloe Pearson earned their 300 Point Club shirts for diving. Sara Bennett set the 200 Free record and Jolynn Harris re-broke the 6 dive and 11 dive records. She also took 4th overall at the state meet!
The team finished second at the Metro Conference Championship meet and in the overall conference standings. They ended the season 6-5 overall.
