Lincoln Head Coach Johnathan Jordan was happy with the results of
the mid-season rest meet. “Everyone on the team earned a season best
time during the meet,” said Jordan. “Many of the athletes earned a
lifetime best time as well. These times should set us up well to
have some athletes ranked very highly among NJCAA swimmers.”
The Lynx will be in action after the Thanksgiving break on December
2nd at the Ted Erikson Fall invite on the Campus of Illinois
Institute of Technology.
