Friday morning two Lincoln High School athletes signed their letters of intent to attend Lincoln College this fall. Both will be playing baseball for the LC Lynx. Coach Tony Thomas was on hand for the signing, bringing with him baseball jerseys for the boys and Lynx caps to go around.

Thomas spoke briefly about the two boys, saying: "We're very excited to have both the boys coming to Lincoln College. They both bring good-quality athletics as well as academic and social skills to the college. This is a key component for their success in many ways, as young men and as athletes."
