South Whidbey suffers loss in opener / Softball

Unable to get much practice time outdoors, the raw South Whidbey High School softball team lost 19-3 at Oak Harbor in the season opener Tuesday, March. 12.

“It was a little rough for our girls who haven’t had many practices on our field due to the weather,” coach Brad Jaeger said. “We have held most practices in the gym, and we are looking forward to warmer, dryer weather so we can use our field.”

The non-league loss wasn’t without highlights for the Falcons.

Ari Marshall and Kayla Knauer each rapped two hits, while Melody Wilkie doubled and Natalie Wilmoth tripled.

On defense, Knauer made two diving stops at shortstop and Marshall “played her usual outstanding defense at catcher,” according to Jaeger.

South Whidbey (0-1) plays its home opener at 4 p.m. Thursday, March 14, against Concrete (0-2). The Falcons game Saturday, March 16, with Chimacum has been postponed.
