LINCOLN -- Two players from Lincoln's 2021 boys soccer team were named to the All-State team and three others made the All-Conference squad.
Sophomores Tsimtxhua Vang and Rafael Regaldo, whose six goals against Lead Hill on April 22 set a state record for most goals in a match, were named to the Class 3A All-State team, while senior Connor Schork, Gonzalo Perez and sophomore Chilong Vang were listed as All-Conference selections.
Lincoln overcame an 0-5-2 start in which the Wolves were winless in their first seven matches to finish with an overall winning record of 8-7-4 and a conference record of 5-2-3. Three of those losses were to bigger nonconference schools, Fayetteville, Farmington and Prairie Grove, while the Wolves managed a 4-4 tie against Gentry on March 5 and a league tie against Life Way Christian, 3-3, on March 11.
A breakthrough win, 5-4, on the road at Arkansas Arts Academy spurred a 5-match win-streak turning the season around. The Wolves eventually qualified for state and lost to Central Arkansas Christian, 4-0, on May 13 during the Class 3A State tournament.
Once the season concluded both coaches, Angela Guillory and Jordan Watson, resigned -- leaving Lincoln in search of someone to run the program.
