Falcons Weather Storm With Ease

Updated on May 14, 2015

WPAC Champs



Fresh off of their second straight WPAC and WPAC tournament titles, the Falcons made quick work of the Storm of Stuart Cramer in the first round of the 2A softball playoffs.

Sydney Miller struck out the first five batters before the the sixth batter finally put the ball in play on a ground out to second base. Miller had eleven strikeouts on the night, and carried a no-hitter into the fourth inning. She also added a home run for good measure as the Falcons poured on the runs.

The Falcons got their timing down the second round through the batting order to pull away from the Storm. In the bottom of the fourth inning, the Falcons exploded for eight runs to increase the lead from 4-0 to 12-0 and brought the mercy rule into play.

Kelsey Swaim, Allison Mitchell and Mallory Choplin all reached on singles before Taylor Wooten ran a couple of girls home with her two-run double off of the left-field fence. Logan Wood followed with a single to score Choplin and Wooten. Sydney Miller was beaned in the helmet on the first pitch after her towering home run the previous inning to put runners at first and second. Savannah Yale added her single to the mix to load the bases, and Marissa Lineberry politely doubled to center to plate Wood and Kaylee Bullin (courtesy runner). Jessie Hunter hit a SAC fly to left to score Yale, and Mitchell finished off the scoring by plating Davis Ann Wood (courtesy runner) with a two-out double off the top of the fence. Let's take a minute to catch our breath.....

Miller retired the Storm in the top of the fifth to close out the game and earn the shutout victory. The Falcons move on to host the Randleman Lady Tigers on Friday at 7pm in East Bend. Randleman took down the Blackhawks of West Wilkes behind a strong pitching performance from Courtney Lineberry. Should be a good one, so come out and support the Lady Falcons!


Mallory decides to test the quickness of the third baseman. Pick your poison. How would you like for me to get on base this time?

Destination Forbush High School for this plaque. Two years in a row in the WPAC. Three reasons why; Yale, Wingler and Wingler.


A senior, Savannah Henry, with a vested interest in making another long run in the 2A playoffs. She and her teammates were so close last year, and now are looking to give it another shot.

Celebrations and photo-ops. The Falcons definitely wore out their welcome in Surry County over the past week. Three trips to Surry Central in just over a week, and an hour's worth of photos after the championship game.

The Falcons finished off a perfect conference season in the best way possible. Together. Sometimes you just have to let the girls get their photos. It is important, you know.

Yale flexes a little muscle with a deep shot to left in the conference tournament final in Dobson.


Kaylee is a base-running specialist. Round and round she goes....

True Statement

Do you think that the families are behind these girls? If there are any doubters, here is the reminder to tread softly in Falcon country.
