Lincolnview track and field news

DELPHOS — The Lincolnview Lancer boys’ and girls’ track teams competed in the Delphos St. John’s Invitational on Saturday. Both the boys’ and girls’ teams had excellent showing, with both placing third overall. The Lady Lancers finished with 79.5 points, only 6.5 points behind Fort Jennings, which won the meet. The boys finished the meet with 86 points.

“The kids had a great meet, following a very long week,” said Lincolnview Coach Matt Langdon. “This is our third meet in six days; however, they came out and had some amazing performances.

“It is a testament to their heart and desire to compete and do their best,” Coach Langdon added. “It was tough for the girls falling just a few points short of winning, but there is very little they could have done differently. We just ran out of girls.”

The Lincolnview said he likes where his team is right now, noting that he feels the team is in a great place to be going into the last part of the regular season schedule, with the conference meet and tournament down the road.
