Some things never get old. The Lincoln Railers pose with their regional championship trophy right after the game Friday night. This was the 50th time in Railer history that the school has won a regional championship. Lincoln will play Decatur MacArthur on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at the Decatur Eisenhower gym.
To get tickets to watch the Railers continue their bid for a state championship, see information in story below.
