Lincoln 2 - Westerly 5
Lynx Tennis fell to Westerly on Monday with a close 2-5 loss. Junior, Maeve McEnroe, secured the first team point with a 7-5, 6-3 win at 4th singles. The second doubles team of junior, Emily Egan, and sophomore, Abby Gaetz, pulled out a close 3 set win 6-3, 2-6, 6-4 to keep the match close. But, after a long three and a half hour match the Lynx fell just a little short. Every set and match were close and could have gone either way, giving players optimism and enthusiasm to bounce back and face Smithfield on Tuesday.

Varsity Cross Country
The XC team enjoyed a gorgeous day for their first official race of the season in which they raced Mt Hope and East Providence at Colt State Park in Bristol. They all put it all out there and did a great job figuring out how XC races work. The team was led by Sydney North, who was followed closely by Amick Sollenberger. Julia Meyersiek, India Robert and Sasha Floru rounded out our top five. Congrats to India and Adde Graham for completing their first races ever and Isabel D'Hondt-Gorbea for finishing her first 5k! A special shout out also goes to Amick for her amazing finishing kick - she caught and passed the first East Providence runner while coming around the building and kicked it in to a great finish. Amick and Sunny Zheng also ran season PR's. Great work girls! The final scores did not go our way today, as we lost to Mt Hope 38-23 and East Providence 34-25 but the girls should all be proud of their own performance and excited for next Monday when we race Wheeler, Moses Brown, Portsmouth and Tiverton at Glen Park in Portsmouth.
