Over the weekend, the Lincoln College Men’s and Women’s Cross
Country teams competed in Peoria at the Bradley University Invite.
No team scores for non NCAA Division I teams were kept at this
The course was difficult due to prolonged rain which made the course
wet and muddy. Despite the difficult conditions, LC runners were
able to post several strong times. The top finisher for the men’s
team was Terrell Robinson. Robinson, a freshman from Rock Island,
ran the 8K course in 29:02 and was 17th overall.
Other top finishers for the Lynx were Brian Gichuru (18th), Blake
Quandt (19th), Zach Podunajec (20th) and Dillion Butler (22nd).
On the women’s side, freshman Erin Layne (Chillicothe) led the Lynx
with a time of 23:12 and placed 17th in the event. Fellow freshmen
Payton Marr (Clinton) and Lincoln’s Aurora Board came in just behind
Layne to take 18th and 19th, while Tia Wilson (Lincoln) and Kaylynn
Prater (Havana) finished 21st and 22nd.

Lincoln Head Coach Brian Herron said, “I thought our kids did a
solid job at this meet. This is definitely one of the toughest
courses we will race on and the rain made footing difficult in some
areas. They did a much better job of following their race plans and
were able to finish much stronger. This will help us as we head to
another tough course this week and Regionals.”
The Lynx will be in action again this Friday at the Bradley “Pink”
Invite at Newman golf course.
