The Granite Falls softball team clinched a District 1 playoff berth and put South Whidbey on the verge of missing the play-in game with a 16-6 win Wednesday.
The Tigers (11-1 Cascade Conference, 11-1 overall) defended their home field and remained the top team in the Cascade Conference. South Whidbey (5-9 Cascade Conference, 6-9 overall) needed to sweep a doubleheader against Sultan (1-12 Cascade Conference, 1-12 overall) on Friday in order to qualify for the district crossover game, the winner of which advances to the district playoffs.
The Falcons struggled to keep Tigers’ runners off the bases, despite getting four runs from junior pitcher Alex Kubeska on a home run and a triple.
