Coach Brian Herron said, “The team has been working very hard for the last few weeks and it was really great to get the team racing again. We have a better idea of what we need to do to keep improving as a team.” Herron continued, “We have two weeks to get ready for the Bradley Intercollegiates. I am expecting them to make even better strides in this time.”

The Lynx will be in action again on September 14th starting at 5:00 PM at Detweiller Park in Peoria, Illinois.
