It has been an amazing fall sports season for the Lincoln Lutheran Warriors. For the first time in school history, all five of the fall sports teams have qualified for State competition, with our girls Softball team winning State!
This season started with a new sport for Lincoln Lutheran, girls Softball. Working in cooperation with Crete, we had one student, Freshman Leah Jurgens, who went out with team. Leah made major contributions to the team and for the first time for the Crete Cardinals, the team qualified for state and then won the Class B title. Next season looks to add a few more LL students to the mix and we look forward to another strong season next year!
The Girls Golf Team returned this year to State competition for the 7th time in a row. The four golfers, Juniors Logan Eschilman and Sophia Fahleson, Sophomore Natalie Barrett, and Freshman Grace Fahleson, made a strong showing finishing 12th as a team. All the girls battled hard through the rough weather conditions on the first day of the tournament and gained valuable experience for next season for which they will all be returning. This season saw the girls all lower their personal best scores considerably. They earned many top ten finishes and finished runner up at the District Championship. They have had lots of great experiences to build upon for next season!.
