After games on Saturday, April 21

They won't meet in the playoffs, but fans got their dream matchup last week when Calallen and CC Carroll met in a battle of the top teams in Corpus Christi and the state.

This time, Calallen of Class 4A prevailed against CC Carroll of Class 5A by the count of 7-1, thanks to a strong pitching performance from Armando Arevalo, who took a no-hitter into the seventh and is 7-0 on the season. The win could have future rankings implications should the two end up winning state titles.

Nationally, the outcome moved Calallen back into the top 10 at No. 7 in the POWERADE FAB 50, which includes six teams from the Lone Star State.
