South Whidbey’s baseball team, hot off a second-place finish at the state 1A championships in 2015, began the 2016 season with a 6-2 victory over Cedarcrest on March 16.

Falcon senior Josiah Colby led the team in hitting, going 2-4 with two doubles and one RBI. Junior Will Simms went 2-4 with a double and two RBI, while senior Charlie Patterson finished 1-3 with one RBI. Patterson pitched five innings for the Falcons with five strikeouts.

“It’s definitely a confidence booster,” said Falcon head coach Tom Fallon.
