Thursday morning, Lincoln
Community High School hosted a pep rally in honor of the Railer varsity
basketball team and invited the public to come in and
participate as well.
The Railers were preparing to
head out to Peoria for the rest of the day to get acquainted with
the Peoria Convention Center and the basketball court where they
will play, hopefully, two more games and come home as the Illinois High
School Association Class 3A state champions.
The team has already soundly
secured a fourth-place position in the state, winning Tuesday
night against the Cahokia Comanches. The guaranteed fourth place is
something a Railer team has not seen since 1980.
After the rally, the team was
given a hero's escort out of town by the Lincoln fire and police
Over the weekend, Debbie Olden
and Jeff Benjamin will be at the games, documenting this chapter in Railer
history. Debbie is registered with the IHSA as the
official LDN photographer. She will have prime spots on the
floor to grab her pictures and will be welcomed on the floor after
the games for group shots as well as trophy presentations.
Jeff will be giving us his wonderfully written reports on each game
