The latest rankings by MaxPreps had them at #4 among NC western region 3A teams, but they've won two more games since then.  The East Lincoln Mustangs softball team is now 16-0, the only unbeaten team among the top 10 in the western region 3A, and obviously #1 in the Western Foothills Conference.  

Their 11-0 conference mark has them two games in front of North Lincoln (9-2, 12-6 overall).  Ace pitcher Leah Correll notched her 15th win of the season.  Madison Currence pitched three innings in the shutout of Fred T. Foard on Wednesday.  Taliyah Thomas had a solo home run, her 9th of the season.  Freshman Taniyah Thomas  had 3 singles and scored 2 runs scored.  Currence had two singles and scored a run and Bailey Hardin had two hits and an RBI.
North Lincoln kept pace heading into Spring Break with a 5-1 win at St. Stephens.  The Wednesday losses dropped Foard and St. Stephens to 8-3 in the conference.  

West Lincoln won its 12th game of the season, shutting out Newton-Conover 16-0.  After a scoreless first inning, West pushed 14 across the plate in the second and added two more runs in the third.  Junior Harlie Burton and freshman Stacie Cowan teamed up for the shuout; Burton got credit for the win.  Cowan batted in four runs.  West is now 10-1 in the Catawba Valley Conference, a half game behind Bandys (11-1).  The Rebels are scheduled (weather permitting) to play at West Caldwell Thursday.  Bandys is scheduled to play at Newton-Conover.  The Trojans beat Maiden 10-0 on Tuesday.
