DENVER – Lincoln Charter’s softball team collected a 10-0 victory over Mint Hill Queen’s Grant on May 3 to capture the Piedmont Charter Athletic Conference championship.
Eagles freshman pitcher Emily Kenley no-hit Queen’s Grant, striking out 14 and walking three to get the win. Kenley’s performance pushed her record as a starter to 5-2 on the year.
Victoria Morgan and Josie Weber led the Eagles at the plate in the win over Queen’s Grant with two RBIs each.
After a 5-2 win over Class 4A opponent Olympic on May 8 the Eagles’ win streak ballooned to 13. They haven’t lost a game since a 7-2 setback to Maiden on March 6.
Lincoln Charter (14-2, 6-0 PCAC), a Class 1A school, upset Southern Piedmont 1A/2A conference contender North Lincoln 6-4 in a nonconference game on May 2.
Because the PCAC is an unofficial conference, the Eagles need an at-large bid from the North Carolina High School Athletic Association to compete in the Class 1A state playoffs. The playoffs begin on Friday, May 11.
