Lady Falcons Move to 3-0 in WPAC

Updated on April 9, 2015




Davis Ann Wood, Kayla Shore and Marissa Lineberry all hit home runs for the visiting Falcons on Tuesday night in Winston-Salem as the team was able to defeat the Yellow Jackets of Carver.

Davis Ann Wood was a new face added to the Falcon lineup at shortstop in place of regular Taylor Wooten. Wood finished 3 for 3 with 1 RBI and 4 runs scored on the evening. The home run was the first of her career.

Other new faces got into the action for the Falcons. Caiti Mickles took over the pitching duties for Miller in the second inning, and managed to strikeout 6 batters in her two innings of work. Mickles also added a double to help the Falcon offense. Seven Falcons (Briana Hinshaw, Jessie Hunter, Olivia Wingler, Alex Wingler, Alexis Collins, Madison Coe and Savannah Henry) combined for 14 hits to contribute to the offense.

For the Carver Yellow Jackets, the first inning got off to a bang as the first three batters were able to put the ball in play against a tough pitcher, Sydney Miller. The lead-off batter for Carver grounded out, but the second batter reached on a hard ground ball to right field. With one out in the inning, Carver's third batter hit a line drive to right field. The runner at first thought the ball was going to drop, but Savannah Henry met the ball in the air and fired to first to double off the Yellow Jacket. This ended the Carver threat.

As a ball player, you tip your hat for a few reasons. If you have been beaten by a better team, if you are acknowledging the skill of your opponent, or if you recognize someone doing it the right way. In Carver's case, the hat needs to be tipped to the softball team for what it is trying to accomplish.

The Carver coach is teaching more than softball to her players. Even though the majority of the girls are new to softball their enthusiasm for the game is refreshing. Carver's team plays with a smile on its face that demonstrates the importance of athletics in the lives of today's youth. Those girls are part of something. The coach, the athletic director and all the fans supporting the team are doing it right. For that reason, the Yellow Jackets need to be commended.

The Falcons finished off the game with two runs in the top of the third inning to get their league-leading third win. Sydney Miller got the win for the Falcons to improve her record to 9-1 on the season.

The Falcons will hit the field for two more games this week as they host Carver on Friday (6pm) and travel to North Davidson on Saturday (11 am).

How many years?

One of the greats showed up in the field at Carver on Tuesday evening. This umpire has been a fixture since 1973 and still manages to do his job with a smile on his face. It's hard to argue with an umpire that has been around since Nixon was president.
