Lincoln claimed a tight No. 1 doubles win, allowing the host to shut out Princeton, 5-0, in a Big Eight Conference boys tennis match Monday.

In singles for the Alices (7-4, 2-0 Big Eight), No. 1 Trevor Stenger shut out Lance Stuckey, 6-0, 6-0; No. 2 Dustin Altstadt controlled Jevin Huey, 6-0, 6-1; and No. 3 Kyle Stenger crushed Hunter McCandless, 6-1, 6-0. In doubles. No. 1 Landon Altstadt-Quentin Seger rallied past Collin Holzmeyer-Garrett Scott, 6-4, 4-6, 6-2; and No. 2 Simon Corrona-Ethan Smith dropped Quinn Sanders-Drew Morris, 6-4, 6-1.

"Last week we only ended up playing once, so I was kind of concerned. But we came out strong and put pressure on them early," Lincoln coach David Bruner said. "Our two doubles have won two in a row and they're starting to figure each other out. It's what we expected out of them here in the middle of the season.

"It's good to get this win because we have a match every day this week."

The Alices took all five junior varsity matches. Calvin Carmean posted 8-0 and 8-2 wins; David Wilson had an 8-2 win in singles and teamed with Hunter Lemon for an 8-4 win. Lemon also had a 6-2 win.

Lincoln hosts Loogootee at 4:30 p.m. today.
