As we continue through the soccer playoffs, we have to pick an interim time to catch you up on the high school baseball district races. They have reached or about to reach the halfway point.Let’s start in District 4-5A where Carroll, which is finally enjoying playing some baseball under the lights, is setting the pace with a 6-1 record and leads Keller Fossil Ridge, Keller and Richland.The Dragons’ only loss was to Keller Fossil Ridge. But owning a two-game lead going into the second half of district play is a pretty nice position to hold. What’s encouraging is that Northwest is hanging around and very much a part of the district playoff race. The Texans definitely have an opportunity to make a move in the second half.As for 6-5A, Grapevine is controlling the pace at 6-0. Colleyville Heritage, which has been trying to develop its pitching for most of the season, has found some momentum and is in second place at 5-1. The first half of the district season ended Tuesday.In District 11-4A, Byron Nelson, which made the 2012 playoffs, is continuing to stay in the hunt as it was 2-2 heading to Tuesday’s first-half finale.It’s looking more and more like we’re going to have at least five playoff teams when they begin in early May. You can pretty much book three of those spaces for Carroll, Colleyville Heritage and Grapevine.Why? Well, when you consider the tradition of each program, these players just understand what’s required to maintain a level of excellence.We also have a little home run race shaping up. And wouldn’t you know that quarterbacks are involved. If you haven’t noticed, Colleyville Heritage’s Cody Thomas leads our coverage area with seven long balls. Fossil Ridge’s Sheldon Neuse (who gave up football before the 2012 season) is second with six. Carroll’s Kenny Hill has four. We have another month in the season, so we’ll see how this chase evolves.Joel Bolomboy updateLast week, we caught you up on Keller Central product Joel Bolomboy and his success with Weber State. WSU’s season was continuing in the CollegeInsider.com Tournament championship on Tuesday against Conference USA’s East Carolina.Weber State already set a school and Big Sky Conference record for wins in a season (30-6) but Bolomboy had started to slow down in the last two games against Oral Roberts and Northern Iowa. He scored six points between the two games.Football recruitingFootball recruiting never stops, and more and more attention is being paid toward Keller brothers Sione and Tristan Teuhema. Sione, a 2014 DE (6-4, 215), has seen his attention skyrocket over the last two weeks as he has picked up offers from Texas, Baylor, TCU, Oregon State, Washington State and Oklahoma State.As for Tristan (6-5, 335), who is a 2015 offensive lineman, he has also secured offers from the same six schools. And expect the offers to keep coming in when Keller begins spring football later this month. Keep in mind May is the time when Division I coaches can visit spring practice. Now that the word has spread on those two, look out.Texas RelaysFinally, the boys 3200 at the Texas Relays last weekend in Austin had a Northeast Tarrant County feel to it. Carroll’s Connor Hendrickson won the event at 9:10.77 and edged out Keller’s Austen Dalquist who finished in 9:11.53.
