The Sioux Falls Lincoln Boys Cross Country team won their third consecutive SDHSAA State Championship this season and finished 3rd at the Nike Heartland Regional, which consists of the very best teams and individuals from a seven state region.
Out of the Nike Heartland Regional, the Patriots qualified for the Nike National Meet, placing 21st in the event.
The Patriots were led by Stanford recruit, Will Lauer and a star-studded cast of 2-7's.
If we look at performance at the national level, no other team in South Dakota- in any sport-excelled at the US level like Lincoln.
Aberdeen Wrestling was named the 2014 Boys Team of the Year by the South Dakota Sportswriters, but should it have been the Lincoln Patriots?
