The L.D. Bell Lady Raiders softball team remained tied for second place in District 7-6A with Haltom, with each team boasting a 6-3 district record. The teams were set to play last Friday, but the game was postponed to 7 p.m. Monday because of last weekend's thunderstorms. The Monday game will be played at Bell.
Bell is set to host Southlake Carroll, the first-place team, at 7:15 p.m. Friday in a game that could have a big impact on the final district standings and playoff seedings. The last time the Lady Raiders played Carroll, March 30, the Lady Dragons won 16-6. Meanwhile, Haltom has not only the Monday game vs. Bell but a Tuesday match against Carroll and a Friday game against Coppell.
Bell looks to draw either Mansfield or Midlothian in the first round of the playoffs.
Never miss a local story.
The Trinity Trojans baseball team suffered just its second loss of the season last Tuesday in a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Coppell. After a few attempts to play the second game of the series last weekend, the final four innings of the game were ultimately postponed to 6 p.m. Monday at Coppell. The game was postponed after three scoreless innings.
The Trojans are also scheduled to finish out district play this week with a series against Richland. It begins 7 p.m. Tuesday against Richland and is set to wrap up at 7 p.m. Friday at Trinity. The Trojans also have a non-district game against Trophy Club Nelson scheduled for May 2.
The L.D. Bell Raiders baseball team was finally able to raise the win flag last Wednesday thanks to a 4-3 defeat of Haltom on the road. Bell had the second leg of the Haltom series postponed to 7 p.m. Monday at home, then will play a non-district game hosting Arlington Heights at noon Saturday.
