Head Coach Eric Dettman (also known as Twin 2 in the Long Green Line) has successfully transitioned from dominant runner to successful coach. His successes at Lincoln aren't solely performance based. He makes a considerable effort to create a lifelong love of the sport, build a strong community while also supporting athletes to become the best version of themselves.
In his 9 years at Lincoln he has helped guide his girls teams to 4 straight state trophies and his boys team to 2 state trophies. His girls finished 18th at Nationals in 2019 and 11th in 2021 and his boys finished 18th in 2021.
Over the past 9 years he has also helped guide 34 athletes to continue competing at the next level with eighteen at the D1 Level, two at the D2 level, nine at the D3 level, two at the NAIA level and three at the community college level. He’s also had over 20 athletes continue on with their college’s club team as well.
At our camp, Eric will talk to the girls about continuing their running journey post high school. As we know, there isn't one path that is perfect for everyone. He will share things to consider when choosing a school and how to weave your running future into that choice.
