Low numbers and a young roster of athletes did not work to Lincoln County's advantage in Saturday's 10th annual E. G. Plummer Invitational at Danville.
With over 25 teams converging on Admiral stadium, most loaded with strong varsity talent, Lincoln's middle-school dominated team had trouble keeping up with the competition.
"We're just very young,Ã¢Â?? said Lincoln Coach Julie Fisher. "We just don't have the numbers that these other teams have and most of our athletes are younger.Ã¢Â??
Despite its youth, the Patriot team did put up some points in the varsity meet with Jordan Wilkinson and Eric Sanders on track and at the head of the field.
