Lake Norman has up-and-down night

Lake Norman High had a big win and a couple of upset losses Tuesday night.

The baseball team earned a share of the top spot in the I-Meck Conference standings with a key 3-0 win against Hopewell. For my story from this morning, click here.

The Wildcats' softball team, which was undefeated going into yesterday and was No. 1 in the Observer's Sweet 16 poll, had its first loss of the season, a 3-1 Hopewell upset. The Titans' Lindsey Russell struck out four and hit two-for-three, while Bre Blakley hit two-for-two with a home run.

On the soccer field, previously unbeaten Lake Norman suffered another upset, losing 4-3 to Hopewell. The Titans were led by Katelyn Faucette's three scores. Brooke Arey scored the other goal. The Wildcats were ranked No. 3 in N.C. 4A girls' soccer coaches' poll.
