There could be as many as four Collierville High School teams competing at next week's Spring Fling state championships next week in Murfreesboro and another CHS team plays for a state title tomorrow.

The girls' tennis team, by virtue of a 4-0 win over Dyersburg yesterday, has already qualified. Up next are baseball, softball and soccer.

After defeating Houston for a fourth time this season on Thursday to claim the Region 8-AAA title, the Dragons baseball team will host Arlington today at 7 p.m. in a sectional game, the winner of which moves on to state.

Collierville (35-3-1) got a strong pitching performance from Peyton Calitri to beat Houston 3-1 at home. He struck out four, walked two and allowed just six hits over six scoreless innings. Sam Poindexter recorded the final two outs to earn the save.

Gabe Nicholson singled and doubled and Franciso Cartaya and Ty Leatherwood each drove in a run. Mitch Austin had a pair of hits.

The Collierville softball team routed Houston 11-0 on Wednesday to claim the region title and will be looking to make state for the first time since 2015.

Collierville will host Hardin County today at 6 p.m. in a sectional game.

In soccer action, Collierville fell to Houston 2-1 on Thursday in the region title game. Jake Sisson, on an assist from Jesus Melendez, headed in the equalizer in the second half before Houston scored late for the win.

The soccer team will travel to Rossview on Saturday for a 6 p.m. sectional game and a chance for a third state tournament appearance in four years.

It's not a TSSAA sport yet, but the boys' lacrosse state championship is being held Saturday in Nolensville and Collierville will take on Ravenwood at 2:45 p.m. for the state title.
