ELDORADO, KS — The Lincoln College Men’s and Women’s Track and Field season came to an end at the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) National meet hosted by Butler College in Eldorado, Kansas.
Two of the biggest highlights from the meet were April Goetz’s 9th place finish in the 10,000 Meter and Carrissa Tinsley finishing 10th in the shot. Jai’den Nelson barely missed the top 10 with an 11th place finish in the hammer.
Lincoln Coach Brian Herron said, “I thought that April and Carrissa overcame a lot to finish where they did in this meet. This was the hottest weather that we competed in by far all season. April did a great job of staying aggressive and positive during her race. There were more experienced runners that did not handle the heat as well as she did. Coach Richardson and April had a great race strategy. Carrissa overcame an illness at the meet and by the smallest of margins barely missed finals. She showed a lot of heart to compete at the level that she did. We are very proud of both of these young ladies.”
