Bishop Carroll sweeps West to clinch City League baseball title
Girls swimming was the only one missed, and the Golden Eagles came third in that, too.
Bishop Carroll won seven of eight, or 87.5 percent, of the potential City League titles in the 2019 spring season. Four were clinched Friday night.
- Boys tennis, clinched outright April 27
- Baseball, clinched outright Wednesday
- Boys Golf, clinched share Thursday

Last year, in one of the most outstanding high school athletics seasons in recent Kansas history, Carroll won nine City League titles. The Golden Eagles almost matched that in a couple of months.
Carroll’s girls soccer team could only fight for a share of the GWAL title Friday night after rival Kapaun beat East 4-2 on Thursday to win its cut. The Eagles beat Northwest 4-0 to finish their City League season 7-1-0, the only loss coming 3-1 to Kapaun. They beat runner-up finishers East and North 8-1 combined.
Softball entered its final doubleheader of the regular season against Northwest, the only team that could hold it away from another league title. Northwest was undefeated in City League play, but Carroll swept the Grizzlies 8-3 and 6-0 to earn its 97th straight GWAL win.
The boys and girls track teams dominated the City League track meet Friday by a combined 228 points. The Golden Eagles won 15 events, including senior Kindel Nordhus who took home four individual titles and accounted for 40 team points, more than three entire teams.
Last year, Carroll won four state championships and came runner-up five times for nine top two finishes in 22 Kansas high school sports. So far in the 2018-19 school year, the Golden Eagles have one title and one runner-up finish.
