LCS is a member of the Busline League, a consortium of elementary and middle schools ranging geographically from Woolwich to Searsport including the island communities of Islesboro and Vinalhaven.
Lynx Cross Country Team Shows Continued Improvement and Success at Home Meet
On a beautiful fall like afternoon yesterday, 145 student athletes representing seven local schools descended on the Lincolnville Central School for some friendly competition in form of a 2.25 mile cross country race.
In the first race our boys battled to a second place team finish. Team scoring for cross country is done by adding the up which place each of the first five runners from competing teams finish in. For LCS, the top five boys were Brandon Nelson, an outstanding 4th grade runner who completed the race with a time of 15:50, good for 6thplace overall. He was one second and one place ahead of teammate Thomas Leadbetter. Iain Larsen Leavins finished in 9th and Sage Burgess was right behind him in 10th. Jackson O’Donal placed 13th. This gave LCS a total score of 45 points, good for second place, but well behind a very strong CRMS team that scored a very impressive 18 total points.
The girls race was another nail bitter with LCS and CRMS battling the entire way. In the end, the Lynx were able to pull away and claim the day. Lincolnville’s Jaden Johnson and Kara Andrews had another photo finish with Jaden pulling ahead just before the tape and crossing with a winning time of 15:36. Kailin Fuller was close behind in 3rd place and Zoe O’Brien had another strong showing in 6th. Rounding out the team scoring for LCS was Chloe Day-Lynch in 9th place, giving LCS five of the top ten spots with a team score of 21 points. CRMS finished with a total of 34.

The next meet will be held at Searsport Middle/High School on 9/27. The girls will run first at 4:00 PM.
