The Trinity baseball team claimed the District 7-6A championship with a 10-9 victory against Richland last Tuesday and gets set to take on South Grand Prairie in the bi-district round of the playoffs this week.

The three-game series began Thursday. Visit www.dfwvarsity.com for updates and scores.

The L.D. Bell baseball team followed up its second district victory of the season, April 15 against Haltom, with another victory against the Buffaloes in the second meeting, 3-1.

The Blue Raiders finish the 2015 season at 10-13 with just three of those wins in district play. Their other district victory came against Colleyville Heritage.

Softball

The L.D. Bell softball team ran into a threat-laden Mansfield softball team in the bi-district round of the playoffs and lost 10-7, eliminating the Lady Raiders from the postseason.

Randi Castillo homered in the game for Bell, and Audrey Bates and Peyton Newman each had a double.

The Lady Raiders went 7-10 overall this year but posted a 6-4 mark in district competition to make the playoffs as the fourth seed. The team had to adjust after an injury knocked out pitcher Kensi Mankel for the season.
