Nice work ladies!

The Lincoln girls cross country teams ran last night at Valley Southwoods.  Leading the way for the JV team that placed 7th was Shyanne Schiltz.  She was followed by Ashley Medina, Laritza Flores, Lauren Edwards, and Sophia Sanchez.  In the Varsity division the girls placed 10th overall.  Caitlyn Lucht was the top finisher for the Rails.  The rest of the scoring came from Brittney Miller, Sofia Torres, Stephanie Jaimes, and Hadley Brown.  The next meet for the girls will be tomorrow night at Ewing Park hosted by North High school.

Last night the boys cross country team ran to a 6th place finish in the 12 team Valley Invitational.  The boys were lead by freshman Andrew Klein’s time of 17 minutes 49 seconds, sophomore Dylan Vegless’ time of 17 minutes 52 seconds and senior Noah Worhtington’s time of 17 minutes 55 seconds.  This is the first time in over 10 years the boys team has had 3 runners break the 18 minute mark in the same meet.  Last year the team had only 5 runners break the 22 minute mark at this meet.  This year 13 runners did.  Way to go guys.
