"In heat like this, the times do not matter as much as the effort and desire to compete," said Lincoln coach Brian Herron. "Tonight I saw a lot of effort and desire, so I am pretty happy. This is a complete rebuild year on both the men's and women's side. If they all continue to work hard and push each other every day, I can see them dramatically improving."

The Lynx will next compete on Friday at the Walt Crawford Invite, hosted by Eastern Illinois University. The women's 5K starts at 4:45 p.m., and the men's 8K starts at 5:30.
