Emerson Crichton

Lincoln Charter’s Emerson Crichton was victorious in her match against Christ the King’s top player.

The Lincoln Charter Lady Eagles tennis team earned a 7-2 victory over Christ the King Tuesday to remain perfect on the young season at 6-0.

“We’re looking to have a promising season,” Lincoln Charter head coach Dana Crichton said. “The girls have been working hard and it’s paying off, but we still have four more conference matches to play.”

The Lady Eagles won four of the five singles matches played Tuesday, as well as the sixth singles match, which Christ the King was forced to forfeit.
