Lincoln finished the 2011 season with a 19-4-1 record while
capturing the Region 24 tournament for the second year in a row.
After defeating MCC Maple Woods in the district tournament in Kansas
City, the Lynx finished 1-1-1 in the national tournament at Paradise
Valley Community College in Phoenix, Ariz.
The past two years have
seen the men's soccer team finish fifth in the nation at the NJCAA
"I am very excited about this upcoming year," said Lincoln
College head soccer coach Ben Massena. "We've got a great group of
incoming players, which might be my best recruiting class ever. Add
that to our six returning starters, three of which are on the
backline, it could make for an exciting year."
Two key returners are Adrien Sathler of Miami, Fla., and Julio
Velasquez of Albuquerque, N.M.
Coach Massena is in his ninth year as head coach of the Lynx and
earned Region 24 Coach of the Year in 2011 and 2012.
