Carroll’s regular season finished in businesslike fashion. The Lady Dragons (24-2) won the District 4-5A championship going away with a 13-1 record.However, they still weren’t sure their Region I bi-district playoff opponent. Carroll was waiting who was going to come from District 3-5A as the fourth seed. Arlington Lamar and Weatherford were battling for it and played in different locations on Tuesday.The Lady Vikings and Lady Roos were separated by one point in the standings, so there was the possibility that they could have finished in a tie.The bi-district playoff round begins Thursday. However, Colvin said he wanted to keep his team on its normal schedule. He hoped to play on Friday, even though that’s Good Friday and school is out.“Winning a district championship was definitely a goal for us,” Colvin said. “We really felt like there was so much experience coming back along with the girls’ energy and excitement that we had a good chance. You don’t want to take something like this for granted.”When it comes to playing in the postseason, deciding on the playoff location isn’t just a matter of finding somewhere. Knowing the dimensions of the field plays a role. A tight field is usually one that is about 55 yards in width. Carroll likes to spread its opponents out and would prefer it to be a little wider at about 62-66 yards.That doesn’t mean the Lady Dragons are incapable of playing on a smaller field.“We played at Northwest, and they play at the old Northwest Stadium,” Colvin said. “That’s a pretty tight field, but we played one of our best games on it. I’m probably overthinking it. But that kind of field does mean less possession time. A wider field where there are tracks around it usually opens the game.”Getting healthyLast week, we listed all of the injuries the Lady Dragons have had to withstand. But good news is surfacing.Junior forward/center midfielder Payton Gruenewald (stress fracture) had been cleared to resume workouts this past Monday following a positive X-Ray. Colvin said he expects to play her extensively in the bi-district playoff.Sophomore forward Kaylon McKelvey (stress fracture) was expected to see her physician on Monday and receive an x-ray. If that report was positive, McKelvey was expected to return to workouts immediately and play in the first playoff game.Team leading scorer senior forward Sophie Groff (tweaked LCL) returned for the final week of the regular season and showed no discomfort, Colvin said. Colvin said he kept checking with her during games to make sure she wasn’t playing through any issues.“She played some good minutes, and I never got a thumbs down,” he said. “We preach honesty. I don’t want our players to try and play through something that isn’t feeling right.”Briefly…Carroll may go through the postseason not deciding on who its right defender is. In fact, the mid and back lines have featured some different alignments. Since junior Jordan Connors went down with a torn ACL, Colvin continues to experiment with several players including Taylor Valentine, sophomore Kylie McBride and freshman Allie Luna.“We’re just going to see how everything looks,” Colvin said.
