What is an Alice?
One theory is that we were named after a historical story, Alice of Old Vincennes, written by Maurice Thompson. The story takes place in Vincennes in 1788.
The other theory comes from when Lincoln won the state championship for boy’s basketball in 1923. People said our team was like an Alice in Wonderland coming up through the ranks to win. Lincoln was not expected to do anything in the tournament and surprised everyone when the team came out of nowhere to win the state championship. Like the fantasy tale of Alice in Wonderland, Lincoln basketball’s winning streak in the tournament was unbelievable.
