Playing a bit like an Oprah giveaway — you get a run, and you get a run, and you get a run, everybody gets a run — South Whidbey fastpitch saw every player score in the first inning of a 14-4 rout against Cedar Park Christian on Wednesday.

Every single Falcon crossed home plate in the first inning, powered by senior Abby Hodson’s two RBI home run, as South Whidbey jumped out to a 9-0 lead in the 1A Cascade Conference game in Langley.

Falcon junior Leah Merrow and sophomore Aria Ludtke each went 2-for-3 at the plate with an RBI. Merrow ripped a double, as did sophomore Kacie Hanson.

Falcon freshman Mackenzee Collins threw from the circle the whole six-inning game, shortened by one inning because of the 10-run mercy rule. Collins gave up four runs on seven hits and a pair of walks, though only one run was earned by Cedar Park Christian.

An issue all season, errors again hit South Whidbey to the tune of eight leading to three unearned runs. Collins countered the fielding mistakes by fanning 10 Eagle batters to keep Cedar Park (0-17 Cascade Conference, 1-18 overall) winless in league games.

South Whidbey’s final regular season game was against Coupeville at home after The Record went to press. The Falcons qualified for the 1A District 1 tournament May 21 at Janicki Fields in Sedro-Woolley.
