Keller freshman Amanda Desario, a centerfielder, has been doing her part to help the Lady Indians have a successful run. With just a few steals shy of the Keller record of 30, Desario is aiming to surpass that mark in the playoffs.
The final baseball series are to be played this week, and although Keller leads the league by one game over Fossil Ridge and Timber Creek, there are still plenty of scenarios for anyone to lay claim to at least a share of the district title.
As Northwest and Byron Nelson gear up for the area track and field meet, their coaches are optimistic about the chances for several regional qualifiers. Nelson had a couple of district champions and other area qualifiers that boys coach Jason Spoor believes are in good position to move on. For Northwest High School, Caden McDonald won the discus on the boys side, Emalee Wright won the 100 and 300 hurdle events on the girls side and three relays qualified for area.
The final week of the regular season may be more about what the weather says softball teams can and can’t do. Northwest Byron Nelson (15-9-1, 7-5 District 5-6A) is scheduled to play at Keller Central on Tuesday. But if the forecasted rain was going to create mayhem, then look for a lot of jockeying with the schedule. The Lady Bobcats are closing in on their fifth consecutive postseason appearance.
The District 5-6A standings are not looking too kind for Northwest Byron Nelson’s baseball team. But it doesn’t mean the Bobcats are out of the playoff race. Yet they know there is no more wiggle room if they have any hopes to make the postseason.
