and involvement represent as much of Lincoln College's athletic
history as possible.
The Lincoln College Athletic Hall of Fame recognizes student
athletes, teams, coaches, managers, administrators, faculty, staff
and friends who have distinguished themselves in the field of
athletics at Lincoln College, either by their performance on an
athletic team or by meritorious efforts in supporting the athletic
program at the college.
