The 31-5 Lincoln Railers represented Logan County in the state of Illinois' Elite Eight at Peoria's Civic Center this past weekend. Sunday, Roy S. Anderson gymnasium hosted yet another group of local heroes in a community celebration for the boys and their coaches.

Lincoln coach Neil Alexander (back row) looks pleased at what his team accomplished and thanks athletic director Darrell Hanslow for his support. Hanslow is retiring in May but went out on the highest of notes!

Illinois fans were still buzzing about the Illini's 71-59 victory over the Nevada Wolf Pack minutes into the Kentucky-Cincinnati game. An NCAA-record crowd of over 40,000 patrons watched as Illinois advanced to the Sweet 16.

Faces in the crowd. The LDN spotted former Lincoln resident Eric Robinson celebrating the Illini victory while watching the undercard match between the Cats and the Bearcats. Jessica Simpson's husband, Nick, was also on hand but there were no Ashley Judd sightings... at least by our crew.
