Dragons Top District in Academics

The Carroll ISD Academic Team was named District 4-5A Champions following last week’s District Academic Meet.  The Carroll Dragons finished in first place 52 points over second place Keller.

“This was a good win for us,” said John Irish. “We are looking to strengthen and improve our UIL Academic program and the District Championship is a great place to start.” Irish is the Carroll Academic Team Coach and AP U.S. History Teacher.

The team advances to UIL Regionals next month. The meet will be held at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, May 1-3. For more information, click here.
