Club Metro is in Full Swing this Spring

Club Metro hit the ground running this Spring season to provide world-class Adaptive Recreation programs to our Southlake residents.

A Parks and Recreation Department is only as strong as its ease of accessibility to quality programming for every resident. Southlake’s Adaptive Recreation programs aim to encourage residents of all abilities to lead an active lifestyle. Club Metro is Southlake’s premier program, bringing together our community with opportunities for socialization, learning, and fun!

Club Metro has been busy this Spring welcoming back old and new faces alike. With multiple weekly in-person and virtual meeting options available, there is always something exciting happening at Club Metro! Club members can look forward to art, games, yoga classes, special guests, and more! New activities this season include Zumba classes and virtual themed-goody boxes for club members to enjoy at home.

This season, Club Metro is introducing two new opportunities for increased interaction! Due to popular demand, Mondays will now be offered to supplement Tuesdays, Thursdays, and virtual Wednesdays. In addition, Club Metro introduced Sports Saturdays on March 27. Sports like Kickball, Softball, and Basketball are now available to players of all abilities.

All successful recreation programs require passion and dedication from staff and the community, and Club Metro is no exception. The connections formed in Club Metro lead to incredible life-long memories for everyone involved.

“Club Metro has always been about meeting new friends, learning new and exciting activities, and of course having fun!” Exclaimed Club Lead, Oscar Rodriguez.

Hughes Retires After Leading Dragon Baseball for 20 Years

Carroll baseball coach Larry Hughes has retired after 20 years leading the successful Dragon program.

Hughes stepped down at the end of the 2016 season and finished with 491 victories at Carroll and a Class 4A state championship in 2002 and 5A state runnerup finish in 2008. He also finished with 597 career victories.

“My 20 years at Carroll has been the best time of my life,” Hughes said. “The coaches, teachers, administrators and student-athletes have always been great and supportive. The friends and relationships that I’ve made over these 20 years has made it a great place and time. Carroll will always be a very special place to me.”

Since he arrived in 1997, Hughes led the Dragons to the playoffs in 19 of his 20 seasons and 70 rounds of the state playoffs. Hughes led Carroll’s transition from 4A to 5A as the program maintained its status as a state powerhouse.

Hughes coached for 30 seasons and also had head coaching stops at Dallas Jefferson and Cedar Hill.

Other highlights include numerous drafted and college players – Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling and recently-graduated shortstop Hudson Sanchez, who became the highest drafted player in school history when he was selected recently No. 24 overall by the Padres.
