First-place Tigers trip up Falcons / Softball

The South Whidbey High School softball team lost 16-6 at Granite Falls Monday, April 29.

“Makenna Morley made the best catch by any outfielder regardless of the team that I’ve seen all year,” coach Brad Jaeger said. “It was a running, over the shoulder catch that Willie Mays made famous years ago.”

Ari Marshall led the offense by going 2-for-3 at the plate.

The Falcons (1-8, 4-11) play a key matchup with Sultan (1-6, 1-9) at home at 4 p.m. Wednesday, May 1. The two teams are battling for fourth place in the North Sound Conference and a more favorable seed into the district tournament.
