With a 10-0 win over Bishop Manogue on Senior Night and a 14-4 win over Damonte Ranch, the Carson High softball team is taking care of business in the final week of the regular season.
Today, the Senators will play their two final league contests at Douglas (22-6-1, 12-2) in hopes of hanging on to the No. 3 seed.
Carson holds a 9-6 league record, tied with McQueen for the third spot in the Class 5A North.
The Lancers play their final two league contests against Reno (6-8) today, which could potentially impact the standings.
In Tuesday’s 10-0 win over the Miners, Kiele Franco drove in a team-leading three RBIs while Caydee Farnworth allowed just one hit in the circle.
In the process, Farnworth struck out 13 batters on 84 pitches.
Corine Doran, Kayce Johnston, Isabella Reyes, Ashley Naranjo and Kennedy Redican all tallied an RBI in the win.
Thursday, the Senators tacked on the runs late with six of their 14 coming in the seventh inning.
Johnston belted her ninth home run of the season and drove in four runs while Redican added a pair of RBIs as well.
Farnworth was charged with one earned run and punched out another 10 batters.
UP NEXT: Carson looks to solidify its status as a top three or four team in the Class 5A North today at Douglas. The regional tournament will start Thursday,
May 12 and all games will be played at Bishop Manogue High School.
Senator baseball heads to regional playoff game
With a 12-11 loss to Reed on Tuesday followed by 10-0 losses to Douglas and Bishop Manogue, Carson High baseball will go into regional play as the No. 9 seed.
In losing to Reed, the Raiders hosted the play-in game between the two squads Friday afternoon with the winner getting to play No. 1 Reno in the opening round of the regional tournament.
Against Reed, the Senators fell behind 12-6 after four and a half innings, but were able to rally.
However, five runs only got the Senators within one and dropped Carson into the bottom of the league standings with a 1-15 league record in the Class 5A North.
A win Friday in the play-in contest would snap a 15-game losing streak for the Senators, who sit at 3-25-1 on the year.
