The Carlsbad Cavemen varsity basketball team earned a playoff seed in the 5A tournament. The Cavemen will play Roswell High in Roswell on Tuesday. Carlsbad has the #7 seed and will play in the Semifinals on May 6 if the Cavemen beat Roswell High. The Cavegirls did not pick up a playoff seed.
However, the Cavegirl softball team slammed Las Cruces, 23-0, 23-0 on Saturday. The Cavemen also beat Las Cruces, 8-1 and 9-2, in a varsity baseball home doubleheader on Saturday. Congratulations to all of our local sports teams.
