Dragon Tennis Reaches Region Finals Before Falling

The Carroll Dragon tennis team had an unforgettable two weeks.

The team battled rain, delays and rescheduled matches. At the regional in Abilene last weekend, Carroll fought all the way to the Class 6A Region I final before falling to Plano West and finish one victory shy of state.

Carroll opened the regional by defeating Lubbock Coronado 10-4 in a seven-hour match that was moved indoors on three courts. In the region semifinals, the Dragons defeated Allen 10-6.

The Dragons finished the year as district champs and 19-5 overall. During the area playoffs, Carroll was forced into multiple reschedules due to rain and finally outlasted Coppell 10-7 to reach the regionals.
