What a great weekend for Carlsbad! There’s probably too much to fit into one update,
As most people have heard, the Carlsbad Cavemen and Carlsbad Cavegirls won state titles in baseball and softball. The Cavemen did it with a 7-0 win over Sandia. The Cavegirls came back strong to beat Las Cruces Centennial, 13-6. Both teams received warm welcomes when they made it back to Carlsbad late Saturday and early Sunday.
Since we’ve had multiple people ask, this is the first time both the boys and girls have won a state title at the same time since 2002. Congratulations to both teams on an outstanding season. It was the 17th state title for the boys and the 12th for the girls. Both teams overcame hardships, including sickness and injury, to get to this point.
