After cruising to an undefeated regular season, the East Lincoln Mustangs won the South Fork 2A Conference Tournament title on Thursday at North Lincoln High School.

In the tournament, East was followed by Newton-Conover in second place; North Lincoln and Lake Norman Charter tied for third, followed by Bandys, Maiden & West Lincoln.

Junior Brann Reid of Newton-Conover won the singles title with a pair of 6-1 sets over East Lincoln's Joel Reiter. Lake Norman Charter's Tre Thorne and Kyle Fitzsimmons took the doubles championship.

While the conference tourney is now over, East Lincoln has two home matches next week--against Stuart Cramer on Monday and South Point on Wednesday.

The Southern Piedmont 1A Conference Tournament was also scheduled this week in Gastonia. Lincoln Charter, undefeated during the regular season, was the favorite. No report on the tournament was available Friday morning.


In baseball, Cherryville beat Lincoln Charter 12-1 Thursday in a game that was moved up from Friday because of the forecast for rain. The Ironmen had also beaten the Eagles on Tuesday 11-3.

It hasn't been a good week for the Maiden baseball team: after losing to West Lincoln 4-2 on Wednesday, the Blue Devils established a 4-0 lead over Lake Norman Charter Thursday in a game moved up from Friday--only to see the visitors score 10 runs for a 10-8 win. The two losses dropped Maiden (8-4 in the league) from first to fourth place in the South Fork Conference behind Bandys, now in first place with a 9-3 record, and North and West Lincoln, both 8-3 in the conference. East and North were scheduled to play Friday at North Lincoln--weather permitting. West Lincoln was scheduled to host Newton-Conover.

After finally finishing--and losing--their rain-interrupted game with Lake Norman Charter by a 13-3 score, East Lincoln downed Lincolnton 11-1. Bandys topped Lincolnton on Thursday 15-5. With their win over Newton-Conover 4-2 on Tuesday, the Trojans have taken advantage of Maiden's consecutive losses to move into the top spot in the league. They've won their last three games in a row.


In softball, North Lincoln now has a two game lead over East Lincoln and Maiden after beating East Thursday night 5-4 in 9 innings. Haley Patrick had a 3-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to end the game after East had taken a 4-2 lead in the top of the ninth inning. It was the second win of the week for the Knights, who had beaten Lake Norman Charter Wednesday 20-0. East Lincoln downed Lincolnton on Wednesday 15-0. Maiden won its two games this week: over West Lincoln 12-0 on Tuesday and 11-1 over Lake Norman Charter on Thursday. West Lincoln beat Cherryville 10-7 in ten innings Thursday. Bandys topped Lincolnton 12-0.

In soccer, it took a shootout for East Lincoln's girls to down North Lincoln on Thursday. After the teams finished regulation in a 1-1 tie, East won the shootout 4-2.
