When it Rains, it Pours for the Raiders.

Updated on March 14, 2015

Say What?!

The Falcons Win Again

The Lady Falcons made the trip down to Pfafftown to take on the Raiders of Reagan High School for a non-conference game in less than desirable conditions. The game started a little late as the grounds crew had to remove the tarp from the infield, and dry up the surrounding areas. A round of applause to those guys for getting the field in a playable condition.

After a scoreless first inning, the Falcons put up a four spot in the 2nd inning behind hits from Lineberry, Shore, Yale and Wood. The lead remained four until the fourth inning when the Falcon hitters were at it again. Mitchell lead off with a single, and was moved along by Yale. Wooten followed with a single to score Mitchell, and then trotted home on the two-run blast from Wood. A walk, error and infield single by Lineberry produced a couple of more runs for the Falcons to close out the scoring and make the lead 9-0. A lead that would stand to the finish as the game was called after six innings due to playing conditions.

Sydney Miller pitched another 3-hit gem for the shutout. Miller struck out seven batters over six innings with only one walk.

The Lady Falcons are back in action on Monday as they travel to High Point Wesleyan for a battle between softball powers.

Leading the Way

Logan Wood proves that she can lead both vocally and by example. Logan is pictured here leading the chant before the Falcons' scrimmage against Davie. With a tremendous amount of talent, the Falcons don't really have that one player that the team relies on to get the job done. It is a long season, however, and there will be adversity. Leaders are nice to have in tough times.

In the Reagan game it was weather that posed the biggest problem. Logan stepped up with runners on and delivered with 3 RBIs. The rest of the team followed suit and the rest is history. Ignoring the weather, the Falcons scored nine unanswered runs to cruise to the victory. Taylor Wooten, Savannah Yale and Kayla Shore also had RBIs.

Logan isn't the Falcons only leader. Every player will take her turn. That is what makes this team special.


Defense is a Falcon Staple

The Falcons pride themselves on defense. Although the team committed two errors last night it was still a good performance given the conditions. Allison Mitchell almost ended the career of Leftwich Photos as an errant throw narrowly missed picking him off of his perch at the entrance to the Falcon dugout. She atoned for her mistake by snagging a sharply hit ball, and gunning the batter down at first base.

Taylor Wooten made two exceptional plays: one by sticking with an in-between hop for the out, and another by doubling off the base runner on a soft liner behind the pitcher's mound.

Marissa Lineberry

Behind Every Good Pitcher...

Behind every good pitcher, squats a good catcher. On Friday night, as the rain continued to drop down on the Raider field, Marissa Lineberry weathered the storm pitch after pitch. If two hours of squatting in the mud wasn't enough, Marissa took a foul tip off the face mask in the early going. Catchers are a different breed entirely. It was a major accomplishment for Marissa to catch a clean game in such poor conditions.
