For the third consecutive year, the Lincoln Christian Academy Lady Lions won the Carolina Christian Athletic Association regular season and tournament title.
Under the direction of head coach Charlie Greene, the Lady Lions compiled a record of 19-0.
Captains Haley Greene, Megan Caldwell and Amber Crump were integral parts of the Lions success.
â€œI relied on them and they all have excellent leadership skills,â€ Greene said.
Greene is quick to point out it was a total team effort as Cara Caldwell, Amber Morrison, Holley Coffey, Becca Poole, Jordan Holliday, Laura Bronowicz and Jesse Longshore all contributed to the perfect season.
Megan Caldwell, Cara Caldwell and Greene were named to the CCAA All-Conference First Team. Crump, Morrison and Coffey played their way on to the second team.
Megan Caldwell garnered the CCAA regular season Most Valuable Player award, while her teammate Greene was named CCAA Tournament MVP.
Greene and Caldwell, along with Cara Caldwell and Morrison were recognized on the CCAA all-tournament first team. Crump, Coffey and Poole were second teamers.
What makes the Lady Lionsâ€™ success even more impressive is that theyâ€™ve only been in existence for three years.
â€œItâ€™s good to sweep the conference championship and tournament championship for three years straight,â€ Greene said. â€œIt was the positive attitude the girls had that brought the team much of its success,â€ he added.
On the menâ€™s side, the Lions won the CCAA Christian Sportsmanship Award for the second consecutive season, a honor Greene and his team are very proud of.
â€œThatâ€™s a big deal to us. Thatâ€™s as big as winning first placeâ€”your Christian attitude and witness,â€ Greene said.
Heath, Greeneâ€™s son, wasnâ€™t going to be outdone by his sister as he was named to the CCAA All-Conference first team along with Cody Side, who made the second team.
Greene, like his sister, was named CCAA Tournament MVP. Sipe and Goodman both made the all-tournament first team, while Dylon Holliday and Joseph Hudson were second-team selections.
