Carson started with an 8-3 loss to Newark-Memorial and followed that up with a 7-3 loss to Reed. The Senators concluded their day with a 4-1 loss to Lassen.

Against Reed, Carson fell behind 5-0 after two innings thanks to two errors, a walk, a hit batter and a single. Carson scored once in the fourth on a RBI double by Salciedo and twice in the top of the fifth thanks to two errors, a sacrifice bunt by Earle and a two-run single by Kailee Luschar. Reed scored twice more in the bottom of the fifth, and then held the Senators scoreless in the sixth. Luschar went 3-for-3 to lead the CHS offense.
In the finale against Lassen, the Senators fell behind 4-0 before scoring in the bottom of the fourth. The game was stopped on the time limit at that point. Carson managed just two hits, one each by Luschar and Bella Kordonowy, who drove in Carson’s only run.
