They're still unbeaten in team competition. Now the Lincoln Charter Eagles tennis team is just two games away from the state championship that eluded them last year when they lost the championship match to Raleigh Charter.
On Wednesday, the Eagles go after the West Regional Championship as they meet Bishop McGuiness from Kernersville at Bradley Park in Gastonia. Lincoln Charter now has a record of 12-0 following a 6-0 victory over Elkin on Monday (May 13th). Bishop McGuiness is also undefeated with a 16-0 record.
Defending champ Raleigh Charter's scheduled Monday match with Research Triangle was postponed and rescheduled for Tuesday. No report on the other eastern quarterfinal between Holmes High School of Edenton and Franklin Academy from Wake Forest was available. The winners of those matches will meet Wednesday and the winner of that match will take on the winner of the Lincoln Charter vs Bishop McGuiness match for the state championship on Saturday.
East Lincoln's Joel Reiter made it to the semifinals on Saturday but lost in straight sets 6-3, 6-4 to Alexandre Haran from Clinton. Brann Reid of Newton-Conover was nearly perfect in both the semifinals and championship as he beat Aidan Chung of Carrboro 6-0, 6-0, and then took Haran in straight sets 6-1, 6-0 to become the state champ in 2A on Saturday. The matches were played at Cary Tennis Park.
