Year in Review: It was all About Dragon Pride in 2016

Jan 05, 2017 08:42AM ● By Kevin
Another year is behind us, and 2016 was a great one for Carroll ISD, as sports programs flourished yet again. We couldn't have enjoyed the year that was without you, our readers, who share our love for the Southlake community.

Southlake Style readers frequented the 2016 Dragon football schedule the most this past year. You also enjoyed our review of what it truly means to be a Dragon. Dawson Middle School's addition of a cheerleading squad was also a fan favorite, but that wasn't all. Community events, charitable efforts, business news and more were also big highlights from 2016.

So, we decided to break down the top 10 stories of 2016 according to our readers (listed below from No. 1 to No. 10).
