Welcome to Activities & Athletics
Dear Prowler Families,
These past few months have been like no other. This pandemic has affected all of us in many ways. Our education system and activity programs have been dramatically affected.
The MSHSL met today, August 4th, and made some very hard decisions. Although we may not like or agree with all the decisions made, know that the safety of our kids and community was the top priority and we are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead of us.
This fall we will see cross country, swimming, and tennis able to compete. However, these seasons will be reduced both in weeks and the number of contests. (More details from the MSHSL to come). Football and volleyball have been postponed to a season sometime in mid-March to mid-May. That also means spring sports will be affected. (Again, more details to come).
As we approach August we usually are getting excited about the opportunities a new season will bring. This year we hope to still have that excitement, it just might be for different reasons and in different ways.
While we sympathize with some of our athletes’ sudden loss of opportunity to participate in the sport they love, our highest priority will always be their safety. Thus, in this situation, we will continue to follow the guidelines provided by our state and local officials. Please know, once we do return for a complicated spring season, one of our highest priorities will be to offer an exceptional experience for our youth.
If there is anything we can do to assist you and your family, please do not hesitate to let us know. #ProwlerPride

Lincoln High School has always been the home of exceptional student athletes and outstanding artists and academics. The earliest trophies showcased in cases near the Lincoln High School Gymnasium are from the 1937-38 Basketball team. However, trophies commemorating the accomplishments of teams in all areas of athletics, arts and academics and from all years were found in a recent survey of the trophy cases.
Student participation in extracurricular activities is vital to the development of well-rounded graduates. Research indicates that students who participate in daily physical activity exhibit improved memory, concentration, communication skills, problem-solving ability, and leadership capabilities. As a school, we support student participation because the benefits have been shown to be decreased absenteeism, increased self-esteem, and improved health and lifestyle choices. Our community supports athletic and activity programs because there is an increased tendency to participate in their community after graduation.
We encourage every student to find a team, club or organization to use their particular talents for their own benefit as well as the school and communities.
If you have any questions, please call 681-7140.
