Woodinville Shuts Out Bothell 5-0 for KingCo Title
Madi Schreyer was dominate last night in the KingCo Championship game against Bothell. Hitting the mound with laser focus, Schreyer punches out 14 batters while scattering 4 hits. It took a couple of innings to get things going but in the fourth Alyssa O'Farrell led off with a double and Alex Boyd walked which gave Tori Lettus the chance to stay hot with the stick and she delivered. Smoked a 2 RBI double to get the Lady Falcons up 2-0 and on their way to the KingCo Title for the 8th time in 9 seasons. Senior Emily Jackson and Nicole Shavlik got into the action with RBI triples and then Senior Alex Boyd sent a monster home-run deep over left center to put the Falcons up 5-0.
The Lady Falcons are 52-0 in KingCo play the past three seasons and take their 22-1 record over to Spokane to defend their 2012 4A State Title next weekend.

Lady Falcons Earn State Berth After 12-4 Drubbing of Redmond
For the third time this year the Lady Falcons met Redmond but this time there were stakes on the table which obviously got the attention of the Woodinville girls...a berth back to State. This was unfortunate for Redmond as the first inning lasted 45 minutes and the Lady Falcons batted around the line-up (and a half) putting up 9 runs. With lots of young talent on Redmond it was clear they weren't ready for that kind of bombardment and broke under the pressure giving up 4 errors in the first inning.
Bats were alive with Madi Schreyer missing a home-run by a foot, Alyssa OFarrell driving in 3 runs, Nicole Shavlik driving in two runs, smashed line drives by Tori Lettus and Sara Taketa...it was just an offensive show which showcased Woodinville's ability to turn-it-on.
Madi was brutal on the mound too striking out 10 batters and giving up 6 hits; only one ball struck hard. Half of those were mis-hits on wicked stuff from Madi that dribbled in front of our catcher. But with great speed like Redmond has they were able to capitalize on it for 4 runs over 7 innings.
Woodinville now plays Bothell on Friday at 7pm at Inglemoor HS for the KingCo Title and the #1 Seed from KingCo in the State Tournament next weekend in Spokane.

KingCo Tournament Kickoff; Lady Falcs too much; Shut out Issaquah 6-0
First round of the KingCo Tournament last night at Woodinville High School saw top ranked Woodinville taking on KingCo Crown Division #4 seed Issaquah. Wild day of weather passed just as game time approached and our Lady Falcons hit the field with eyes on another KingCo Championship.
Madi was sharp all night tossing a no-hitter in her last game on the home turf striking out 11 batters. What a fitting way to end her career at Woodinville and establish a legacy that will reign for a long time in KingCo.
Madi, Alex Boyd and Kathryn Hatlen had the bats going with timely RBI hits to score the 6 runs for Woodinville.
On to the semi-finals vs Redmond on Wed evening at 7pm at Inglemoor.

Woodinville Sinks Redmond on Senior Night; 4-2
On a wonderful evening at Woodinville High School, the Lady Falcons came out for the final game of the season and to enjoy our Seniors one last time at home: Madi Schreyer, Alex Boyd, Emily Jackson and Alex Nelson.
Redmond came to play ball and put up a run in the top of the first on a couple of infield hits. The Lady Falcons put two up in the bottom of the first with a lead-off double by Emily and then a nice RBI by Sara Taketa. We put up a couple more with a 2 run in-the-park-touch-them-all by Nicole Shavlik using her speed to draw a couple of wild throws. After 2 the girls were up 4-1.
Madi brought her A-Game and struck out 10 including the final batter for the cherry on the top in her last pitch on the mound at her home field. What a legacy these seniors leave behind on that field.
KingCo playoffs on Monday at Inglemoor HS at 7pm.

Lady Falcons Beat Inglemoor 6-2 on Parents Night
Gorgeous evening for our annual 2013 Parents Night at Woodinville High School. Madi Schreyer punched out 12 batters scattering 3 hits. Kathryn, Alyssa and Emily were able to provide for timely RBI hits to drive in runs as Inglemoor reverted to intentionally walking Alex Boyd and Madi Schreyer 4 times in the game. In the end even that desperate strategy proved futile.

Woodinville Too Much for Roosevelt
Always fun to head down to Lower Woodland park on a nice day and this time was to play Roosevelt. Kathryn Hatlen pitched a great game giving up only one run in 5 innings as there was plenty of offense to back her up. Bailey Hicks got into the action early by rattling off a 215 ft double off the wall in right center to score a couple of Lady Falcons and we were off and running. Tori Lettus got not only her first home run to deep left center but followed it up with her second in nearly the same exact spot. In the end it was too much for Roosevelt to handle and the Lady Falcons run-ruled their opponent again.

Woodinville Tops Eastlake 4-2
In an uncharacteristically low offensive day, the Lady Falcons come away with a 4-2 victory at Eastlake last night getting all of their runs in the top of the first with 2 outs. Madi Schreyer gets the team on the board with an RBI double followed by another by Alyssa OFarrell to score Madi. After Alex Boyd walked, Kathryn Hatlen drove a 2 RBI triple to the wall to put the Lady Falcons up 4-0 and what looked to be another run-away win with Madi on the mound. However, as the game progressed, Woodinville was unable to capitalize with runners in scoring position and errors by Eastlake to make it an uncomfortable situation in the bottom of the 7th only up by two runs. However, Madi reared back and threw gas at them in the final inning to secure the win.

Skyline Jumps to Early Lead But Can't Hold On; Lady Falcons Win 6-2
Just as the girls arrived at Skyline for the second of their KingCo Conference games of the year the skies opened up and the rain came down.

Just like that the Falcons were down 0-2.

Madi Schreyer pitched the first two innings striking out 5.

Beamer Presses Lady Falcons in Home Opener; Falcons Win 3-2
In our 2013 home opener, the Lady Falcons Fastpitch had their hands full with a tough Todd Beamer team that came to play. After struggling with a over-generous strike zone and un-characteristic defensive errors our girls were able to squeak out a win 3-2.
Experience was the storyline in this game for the Falcons with Madi Schreyer punching out 14 batters and going deep for her 3rd home run of the season. Senior Emily Jackson got things going after the Falcons going through the order without a run on the board. In her 2nd at bat she took the wide-strike-zone into her own hands ripping a high fast ball off the Beamer 3rd baseman for a leadoff double. Emily then stole third and stole home to get the Falcons off to a 1-0 lead.
Beamer fought back putting a run up in the top of the 3rd which the Lady Falcs answered to in the bottom with a leadoff triple by Junior Tori Lettus and then a 2 run home run by Madi Schreyer to put the Lady Falcons up 3-1.
Beamer put another run up and runners on the bases a number of other times during the game but Madi just cranked it up a notch and sat them down by either a strike out or a lazy ground out.
Girls are at home on Friday against Everett for another non-conference challenge.

Woodinville Unleashes Offense on Monroe 13-2 in 2013 Opener
Opening the season last night for the reigning 2012 4A State Champion Woodinville Lady Falcons at Monroe. The Lady Falcons picked up where they left off last year putting up some big numbers while enjoying the shut-down pitching from Senior Madi Schreyer that took them all the way last year.
Getting things going in the top of the first was Sophmore Nicole Shavlik who battled a long at bat to finish with a roped line drive triple in the gap. That got the Lady Falcons off and running with Madi topping it off with a 3 run homerun to deep right center. In typical fashion the 4 runs in the first proved to be enough though our girls didn't stop there.
In the second inning the bats came alive again with runners on base, Sophmore Alyssa O'Farrell got in the action by drilling a 2 rbi double down the left field line to put the falcons up 6-1 when Junior Tori Lettus came through with a nice single to right to score Alyssa to make it 7-1.
Working around the plate didn't seem to work either as the Lady Falcons had the patience to draw 13 walks off of Monroe Senior starting pitcher Alyssa Eagan while pounding out 9 hits. Madi Schreyer again topped it off with her 2nd homerun of the night in the 4th.
Madi had another great outing spraying 3 hits on 11 strikeouts for the evening. With great pitching and relentless offense the girls were able to finish this one off by run-rule in the 5th inning up 13-2.
The Lady Falcons are off on a road trip this weekend to Wenatchee to play a double-header against Eastmont and Moses Lake on Saturday.
