The Lincoln College men’s and women’s cross country teams competed at the Bradley Intercollegiate meet over the weekend. Competing in the non-D1 division, the men’s team took 3rd place out of 8 teams, while the women’s team finished in 6th place out of 8 teams.
Lincoln’s Austin Webster (East Moline, IL) crossed the line first for all non-D1 competitors. Other men runners that ran in the top 5 for the Lynx included Brayden Batterton (Delavan,IL) (11th), Spencer Mellow (Palm Coast, FL) (22nd), Juwan Riggins (Granite City, IL) (42nd), and Earl Armstrong (75th).

Lincoln College head coach Brian Herron said, “Most of our athletes dropped time this week but what I was more excited about was they seemed to execute their own game plans better. They are doing better at handling the distance and the competition level. We have to continue to improve because our meets do not get any easier.”
The Lynx will be in action again on Friday, September 23rd at the Brissman-Lundeen Invite hosted by Augustana College. The women compete at 3:00pm and the men compete at 3:45pm.
