[February 17, 2010]
Over the weekend the men and
women swimmers and divers of Lincoln College competed in the Region
IV championships, hosted by Lincoln College. Both the men and women
won over Iowa Central Community College and College of DuPage, with
the women edging out Iowa Central by just seven points. It was a
great day for the Lady Lynx!
Region IV and pool records were set by Daniel Corley in the 200 free
and 100 free; Bryce Bohman in the 50 free, 100 back and 200 back;
Patrick Walters, 500 free; Tyler Clingerman, 1-meter and 3-meter
diving; Sandra Stopczynska, 100 breast and 200 breast; and the men's
200 and 400 medley relays, by Alex Madhuizen, Chris Canene, Bryce
Bohman and Daniel Corley.
"This was a great chance to gauge where
we are at this point in the season," said Jake Sexton, head coach of
the team. "We really didn't swim that well and had to dig deep to
pull out the victory. These wins truly were a testament to the
team's desire to compete and win.
"We have two weeks until we leave for NJCAA national
championships in Fort Pierce, Fla. That is when we see if the 6 1/2
months of training will pay off.
"In other news, former head coach Dan Hemenway will be inducted
into the NCJAA Swimming & Diving Hall of Fame this year at our
annual championship banquet. If you see Dan, please extend a
congratulations. He is the first LC representative to be inducted
into the HOF. This is a huge honor."
