Softball, Baseball Teams 5A Playoff Bound

Carroll left-hander Tyler Alexander earned the victory last Friday against Saginaw going four innings and produced 10 strikeouts.

Despite falling in the regular season finale, the Carroll Lady Dragon softball team is bound for the Class 5A postseason. The Lady Dragons finished fourth in District 7-5A and will face Plano East, the district champion from 8-5A. The Lady Dragons (13-8, 8-6) lost last Friday to Denton Guyer 8-3, but were helped by Keller Central, which defeated Coppell. It allowed Carroll to avoid a tie with Coppell for fourth place.

Dragons Blast Saginaw, Aim For Title
The Carroll Dragon baseball team blanked Saginaw last Friday 15-0. The Dragons were led at the plate by Drew Brown, Ben Sego and Kenny Hill  —  each had three hits apiece.

The Dragons (17-9, 10-3) can earn the District 7-5A championship on Friday with a victory against Denton Guyer in the regular season finale. Game time is 4 p.m. at Dragon Field. Carroll holds a one-game lead ahead of second-place Fossil Ridge.  Fossil Ridge ends the season Friday against Keller.
