Falcon Seniors Honored

The Falcons hosted the Golden Eagles of Surry Central on Tuesday night. With the conference championship already wrapped up last week with the win over West Stokes, the attention shifted to the Falcon seniors. Prior to the game, the three seniors were honored for their contributions to the softball program. Mallory Choplin, Savannah Henry and Savannah Yale have put a lot of hard work into their four years in a Falcon uniform and deserved the recognition.

From the time these ladies stepped on campus as freshman they have sought to prove themselves on the field and in the classroom. Prove themselves indeed as all three are in the top 20 of the class of 2015 academically. With the countless hours of homework and practice time, the years pile up and now all three stand together before their final home game of the season. With the support of their family and friends, this night was a huge success. Balloons, posters, bags and flowers were given out in appreciation as a packed house applauded the efforts.

The Underclassmen wanted to contribute in a different way, so when the photo opts had concluded the two teams took the field. Sydney Miller delivered the first pitch, and it was back to business for the Falcons.

The Golden Eagles struck first with a run in the top of the first inning on two hits. It was the first time the Falcons had trailed in a conference game all season. The lead didn't last long as the Falcons put up four runs in the bottom of the first inning.

Taylor Wooten got things started with a two-out single. Logan Wood followed with a double to right that scored Wooten. Sydney Miller then homered to left to catapult the Falcons back in front 3-1. The Falcons weren't quite finished. Yale walked and scampered home on Marissa Lineberry's double. At the end of one inning, the Falcons led 4-1.

Surry Central managed to get a runner on base in the top of the second, but that opportunity was snuffed out quick as the Falcons turned the patented 6-4-3 double play to end the inning. In the bottom half, the Eagles committed a cardinal sin and gave the Falcons an extra at-bat. Wooten reached on an error bringing Wood to the plate with another RBI opportunity. She cashed in with a blast to right center that put the Falcons up 6-1. Miller and Yale contributed singles, and Lineberry brought everyone home with a double to left-center.

The Eagles pitcher, Coe, got one back in the top of the seventh as she drove in a run with a triple to make the score 8-2. Two runs is the second most runs scored on the Falcons in the conference thus far.

The Falcons tacked on three runs in the bottom of the 3rd inning to extend the lead to 11-2. Mitchell hit a solo shot to left, Wooten tripled in Choplin that had reached on a single, and Wood drove in Wooten with a sac fly.

The Falcons finished off the Eagles in the bottom of the 5th thanks to Kayla Shore who doubled in Wooten to end the game. Sydney Miller got the win for the Falcons as she pitched five innings, striking out seven batters with only one walk.

The Falcons travel to Forsyth Country Day for a non-conference affair on Wednesday, and then to Surry Central for the final conference game of the season. Right now, the team owns the best record in the 2A West at 17-1.
