Lincoln hauls in hardware in Patriot Games
STANFORD — The Lincoln County High School girls and boys track and field teams were feeling slightly heavier following Friday’s Patriot Games, as the host teams hauled in a bit of hardware in their first home meet of the season.
The Lady Patriot and Patriot teams garnered a total of 13 medals for Top 3 finishes in the meet. In addition, the team was awarded 27 ribbons for scoring in meet events.
Packing the heaviest haul from the Patriot Games was the Lady Patriot team, which earned nine Top 3 medals and 10 ribbons. The medals won by the Lincoln girls were for two first-place finishes, three runner-up finishes and four third-place finishes. The Patriots earned four Top 3 medals, with two runner-up and two third-place medals. They collected 17 ribbons

The foursome of seniors Tate Newcomb and Courtney Snow, freshman Lucy Singleton and eight-grader Maddy Slone, sprinted to the finish first in both events, winning by a margin of just under six seconds over Madison Southern in the 800 and edging West Jessamine by about three-tenths of a second in the 400.
