 LINCOLN Lincoln leaned on a pair of seniors to salt away a victory over the weekend on senior day.

Cooper Hake and Garrett Aeilts stayed cool on the mound and stopped an Olympia rally to secure a split on Saturday.

The Railers dropped the first game 7-0, managing just two hits.

But the second game saw Railsplitter batters find their grove.

A four run fifth inning, sparked by hits from Aaron Hopp, Andrew Yount, and a sacrifice by Cooper Hake put Lincoln in front.

Hake then went on to pitch himself out of a bases loaded jam in the Spartan's half of the sixth inning. Aeilts came on for the save, and the Railers were able to close out the game with a 5-4 victory.

LCHS also honored seniors Aron Hopp, Ryan Thomas, Ben Steiner, Garrett Aeilts, KJ Fry, Karter Browne, Cooper Hake, Jacob Woods and Derek Jacobs before the game.
