[October 12, 2017] 

The Lincoln College Men’s & Women’s Swimming & Diving team began their 2017-2018 season by hosting Lindenwood-Belleville University (NAIA) for a meet over the weekend. Both teams lost to LBU in overall scoring, but Lynx swimmers were able to win several events and competed very well throughout. The Men’s team fell 127 to 93 and the Women’s squad lost 128 to 83.

Lindenwood was able to sweep all of the relay events, but the Lynx found success in several individual races. LC swimmers Colleen Furgeson (Fr., Marshal Islands) and Kalen Eyre (Fr., Fiji) took first place in the men’s and women’s 50 yard Freestyle events. Freshman Macoy Neinas (Wisconsin) won the 200 IM with a time of 1:58.87 and Maddy Christenson, a sophomore from Michigan, was champion of the women’s 1M diving competition. Lincoln’s Logan Santiago (Fr. Michigan) took first in both the men’s 1M and 3M diving events.

Other event winners for LC included Carla Motta (100 Free), Nichole Cure (3M Diving), Miranda Kindhart (100 Breaststroke) and Oakley Johns (100 Breaststroke)

Lincol Head Coach Jonathan Jordan was pleased with his team’s effort. “Lindenwood is a great team with a lot of talented swimmers,” Jordan said. “The fact that we were able to win 9 events is a testament to the hard work and dedication that the Lynx Swimmers and Divers have. The team will continue to work hard and hope to be able to take home the win when we see them again in December.”

Lincoln will be in action next on October 21st at the Monmouth College Invite.
