Summer Training Camp, Week 2 Update

The Lincoln High School Boys Basketball program is now nearing completion of week two of the four week summer training camp for 2019. As players grind through daily agility, weights and two-hour practice sessions that focus mostly on the defensive side of the ball, the Railsplitters have played over 10 games against other schools over the last two weeks.

The Varsity Rails went 3-1 in week two, sweeping all three games at Simpson before struggling to score in a 57-42 loss to Southeast Polk at Urbandale HS Summer League. In Indianola, Nate Feller, Ben Badger and Kameron Young led the charge on both ends of the ball while the Railsplitters got strong performances by freshman Trovary Cavil as well as seniors Alex Crimmins and Andrew Klein.The Rails will be without seniors Kameron Young and Andrew Klein this weekend during a five game slate at Drake University. Stepping into the limelight will be sophomore Aidan Cord, who saw rotation minutes primarily over the past week. For the Drake tournament, sophomores Victor Hatungimana, Zander Kehoe and Joseph Daughenbaugh will join the varsity squad.

“Attention to detail is the primary focus so far this summer,” said Lincoln Varsity Head Coach Justin Einerson. “With five seniors and no juniors, we need some of our talented underclassmen to turn into dependable varsity guys over the next few months. So far, we’re seeing a lot of good things from both the seniors and the young guys that show us we’re close to being where we need to be.”

Next week, the Rails will spend two hours a day at the Iowa National Guard facility, working to improve the fitness level of all in the program. Due to the physical, yet fun nature of the workouts at the Iowa National Guard, this is one of the best weeks of the year for player and team growth for both Lincoln basketball and football.
