South Whidbey ousted from district tournament / Softball

The South Whidbey High School softball team lost twice in the district tournament Thursday, May 16, at Sedro-Woolley and was eliminated from the postseason.

The Falcons fell 17-2 to the Northwest Conference’s top-seed Mount Baker and 6-4 to Cedar Park Christian.

Coach Brad Jaeger said his club played well even though it was missing two injured starters, which forced several Falcons to play out of position.

“We were right there,” he said after the narrow loss to CPC, which shared the North Sound Conference title with Coupeville and Granite Falls.

He lauded the play of Melody Wilkie, who pitched for the Falcons against the Eagles and led the offense with four hits.

“This was fun,” he added.

South Whidbey finished the season with a 5-15 record.
