South Whidbey baseball has won seven of its last eight games, and a postseason berth.

The Falcons (11-8 overall, 8-7 in the Cascade Conference) rattled off three wins over Sultan, Cedarcrest and Granite Falls in mid-April, but lost in a rematch against Granite Falls on April 19. They responded by winning their next three games, including a 17-9 over King’s on April 28. Falcon sophomore Jon Bartel also threw a no-hitter in a 12-0 win over Port Townsend on April 21.

Their fourth consecutive victory came on Monday with a 10-3 win against Concrete.

South Whidbey’s final home game this season is against Coupeville at 4 p.m. on Thursday at South Whidbey High School.

The Falcons are the second seed in the class 1A Bi-District Tournament and play Overlake in the first round on May 6.
