Carroll defeated Waco Midway 3-2 and 6-1 to advance in the area series played at Glen Rose High School last week. In Game 2, sophomore left-hander Cutter Sippel silenced Midway as he scattered seven hits over a complete game. The Dragons scored three runs combined in the first two innings for all the cushion Sippel would need.
