Celebrating the Lynx: 2020 Athletic Awards

Students, coaches, faculty, staff, and parents gathered virtually this morning to celebrate this year’s student-athletes and their many accomplishments. 

After a welcome from Director of Athletics Ann Palms, and Head of School Suzanne Fogarty, senior Cede Rashleigh McNally–a four-year member of the soccer team–spoke to those gathered about her time as a Lynx. In her words, “Lincoln’s athletes are strong, brave, and creative, and they are always there for one another to make each other stronger, braver, and more creative.”

Her words set the stage for the recognition of her fellow student-athletes, including those who were four-, eight-, or twelve-year letter winners, a true hallmark of dedication to sport and school.
