Jim Reinhart was a world class talent, and as a runner, achieved unremarkable feats as a Patriot during the early 70's. He was a critical member of a program that achieved success unmatched to this day at Lincoln High School nearly 30 years ago, and today, many of Jim's records still stand at LHS as well as the state level. For four years, Jim was a vital contributor to a dynasty whom he credits both his success and his teammates success to hard work, pride, and teamwork. In recognition of the hall of famer, greatest distance runner Lincoln High School has produced, and one of the best ever to come out of the state of South Dakota, I asked Jim to pass down any award he received during his cross country/track and field days for us to use in our program. Graciously, he took the time to look through old boxes and he gave our program a 1972 CC MVP award. As a team, we will honor Jim and his accomplishments by passing the trophy throughout the team during the season recognizing outstanding performances by both male and females at both JV and V levels.
*Please, take the time to view Jim's Hall of Fame induction write-up below. It's hard to sum up his accomplishments and contributions to Lincoln High School in just one page, but it highlights his legacy and puts a better perspective of his impact to our program and to the state.
