Falcons take early exit at state / Softball

The South Whidbey High School softball team dropped both its games at the state 1A tournament Friday, May 25, in Richland.

Deer Park stopped the Falcons 4-2 in the opener, then Warden eliminated South Whidbey 10-3. Warden went on to finish fifth and Deer Park seventh.

Deer Park scored four unearned runs in the first inning and then was blanked by South Whidbey’s Mackenzee Collins the rest of the way.

Collins threw a seven-hitter with 15 strikeouts.

Deer Park’s Cassandra Shaw tossed a four-hitter and fanned 11.

Collins drove in Melody Wilkie and Natalie Wilmoth, who both singled, with a double in the third inning for the Falcons’ runs.

Ari Marshall singled in the second inning for South Whidbey’s only other hit.

Leading 1-0, Warden scored four runs in the third inning and played add on from there to take the loser-out contest.

All three Falcon runs came in the sixth inning when South Whidbey bunched four of its six hits.

Wilkie, Wilmoth, Collins, Bekah Merrow, Bella Northrup and Marshall all singled for the Falcons. Northrup had two RBI; Marshall drove in the other run.

South Whidbey, coached by Heather Collins, finished with a 12-13 record.
