November 17, 2011: Unfortunately, the Lincoln Cougars put up a good game, but were overcome by the experience of the Chapmanville Tigers. Lincoln had a wonderful season of 9 wins, 1 loss, and 1 play-off loss, a record many schools envy. Shinnston is very (and rightfully) proud of them.
Speaking of experience – once again, the Lincoln Cheerleading Squad will be going to State Competition in December. Anyone who thinks cheerleaders are not athletes needs to watch a competition! The hours of practice, the acrobatics they do… I NEVER could have done those moves the girls do, the jumps and tumbles! So just as we cheered the Football Team to the Play-offs, we will be cheering for the Lincoln Cougar Cheerleaders on December 10 as they compete for another State Championship, something they have won more than a few times in the past (at one point 3 out of 5 years). Go CHEERLEADERS!!!
