Coach Kevin Murphy said it was a good start to the season for his teams.
“Our team goal for the meet was to push out fast in all our individual events and relays, test ourselves, and put up some tough and courageous swims, to establish some season best times for the year, early in this 2015-2016 season,” Murphy said. “Our Dragons raced and competed well, with a great many aggressive season-best swims, meeting our team goals for the meet.”

Southlake Carroll rebounds with big rally
The Carroll Varsity Silver hockey team rebounded from a Week 3 loss to defeat Flower Mound/Marcus on Thursday in a 4-3 overtime victory in Farmers Branch.
Scott Joy got things going for the Dragons at the 14:10 mark of the first period on an assist from Cole Shannon to give Carroll the early lead.
Flower Mound/Marcus scored three unanswered goals and Carroll found itself trailing by two heading into the third period.
Lucas Peddicord cut the Dragons’ deficit in half less than two minutes into the third period on an assist from Jacob Ashlock, and Shannon scored on a power-play goal with under five minutes to play in regulation to even the game up.
William Wood earned the assist on the Shannon goal.
Joy struck again in the overtime period on an assist from Alexander Carbone to get the victory for Carroll.
