Spring sports season recap



Freshman Justius Lowe leads the charge against junior Joey Abrams in a 110-meter high-hurdles race at Roosevelt on Mar 20.

Here is a summary of the results from each of Lincoln’s spring sports this season, compiled by the Cardinal Times through interviews and available OSAA data.

The No. 24 seed Lincoln lost 4-3 in the first round of the playoffs to No. 9 McMinnville.

Boys’ Golf
Finished ninth in the state tournament as a team. Senior Nate Stember, the reigning state champion, finished second overall.

Girls’ Golf
The girls’ golf team did not have golfers participate in order to qualify as a team for the regionals competition. Three golfers– sophomore Zoë Jacobs and freshmen Nitsa Kehoe and Sophia Marshall– qualified individually for regionals, but did not make the state tournament.

Girls’ Lacrosse
The No. 1-seeded lacrosse team lost 12-10 in the semifinals of the Oregon state playoff tournament against No. 5 seed Jesuit on May 20. Sophomore midfielder Sophie Kruse finished was named to the Oregon all-state team, while junior Chloe Walton and seniors Kate Denhart and Zahra Sherman received Oregon’s second-team accolades.

Boys Lacrosse
The eighth-seeded lacrosse team lost 8-5 in the quarterfinals of the Oregon state playoff tournament against No. 1 seed Lakeridge on May 24. Players who received first-team all-conference honors were senior attacker Tommy Bingham, senior midfielder Stuart Diffley, and senior goalie Jordan Bruce. Lincoln coach Will Harris came away with the Columbia Conference Coach of the Year honors.

The softball team finished 33rd in the 6A regular season, only one seed out of the 6A playoffs.

Boys Tennis
The team finished second in 6A overall. The No. 2 seeded duo made up of senior Danny Luo and junior James Chen got second in the 6A doubles tournament, while senior Avi Shugar finished third in the singles tournament due to a disqualification in the semifinal round, despite not losing a single match. Shugar and multiple other players were disqualified from their matches due to conflicting schedules with IB tests, and several 6A schools are suing the OSAA for not accommodating to these student’s needs.

Girls Tennis
Finished fifth in 6A as a team; the duo of senior Maggie Satchwell and junior Julia Rees finished fourth in the doubles tournament.

Track and Field
The team sent ten individual athletes (who qualified in 15 events) and one relay team to the State Championship Meet on May 24-25. The girls’ team had four athletes score five times in four different events for a 16-point, 13th-place finish- the highest score coming from Kyla Becker, who placed third and fifth in the 3000m and 1500m runs respectively. Jacob Mesch scored the only points for the boys’ team, in the discus, to give Lincoln two points.
