Win streak ends in finale; Lincoln enters the postseason as the No.1 seed

On Monday, Feb. 24, the winning streak finally came to an end. The loss was the team’s first since Tuesday, Dec. 2, and it was the team’s only home loss of the season. It was no surprise that Lincoln finally broke into the top 10 in the national rankings with the final poll on Tuesday.

Lincoln (19-4) will try to continue their story this weekend at the District VIII Championship in Boston as the tournament’s top seed. If the Wildcats win on Saturday at 4 p.m., they will face the winner of the other semifinal on Sunday at 3 p.m. All games are scheduled to be played at the Bunker Hill Health & Wellness Center.

For now, Beverly is just enjoying the ride.

“We have been in that play-in game. A sixth seed is the best that we’ve ever been,” he said. “Now, to bypass that play-in game to get to the seimifinals? For Lincoln College, we’re making more school history. We’re regular season champions, but we don’t want the story to end there. We want to keep writing that story, and all our guys are focused on that.”
