The Lincoln Charter Middle School girls basketball team finished the season undefeated as they beat the Pine Lake Prep team 33-23 in the PCAC championship game Thursday (Jan. 23rd). 

The game saw the lead go back and forth, but LCS finished on top for the win and completed an undefeated season.   McKenzie Ross led the team with 16 points, 4 assists, 5 steals, and 3 blocks; while  Mackenzie Maggs had 10 points, 2 assists, 2 steals, and 2 rebounds. These two 8th grade standout guards and co-MVP’s led their team all season long. They have been playing together since the 6th grade at LCS and for the AAU Charlotte Dream Elite organization.

Coach Sierra Cheatham said after the victory: "The team had really bought into our identity and strategy since day one, and continued to improve each and every game. They have been a relentless, aggressive team that realized how defense played a big role in our success and made our offense go. We were able to take advantage of our strong defense and playing transition basketball along with our outstanding shooting ability from the outside with Ross and Maggs ability to make the 3-pointers. They had a combined 54 three-pointers on the season which sets a record. Caitie Houser and Tyler Beller--both 8th graders--came up big for us as well playing sometimes out of position as their defensive ability caused so much havoc for other teams. 8th grader Taylor Shelton led the way with rebounds and improved footwork under the basket. We had a strong athletic bench with 8th grader Vanessa Cespedes who played several key minutes and played a big role on offense and defense. We have two 7th grade twins, Gwyn and Stella Neels, who played pivotal minutes. They look forward to being the leaders next season, continuing the success along with some rising 6th graders who also had a lot of playing time and will benefit team as well."
