JEFFERSON CITY- Twenty-two members of Lincoln's track & field teams received a combined 47 all-region honors by the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association for the 2013 NCAA Division II outdoor track & field season. The Lincoln women's squad had 16 athletes combine to earn 32 honors from the organization, the second-most by one program in the nation, while the LU men had six athletes selected for a total of 15 awards.

The Lincoln women's 32 total USTFCCCA All-Region honors rank second in the country, checking in just behind Grand Valley State's 38.
