Season Ends for the ECC Falcons

The Falcons ended with the best season record in school history at 32-22, but fell short in the NJCAA National Tournament. Facing a tough challenge as the #15 seed, the Falcons took an early 3-1 lead against #2 Jones County with three doubles in a row. ECC had a strong couple of innings pitched by Chelsea Bax and ECC was looking to finish the game with good defense. Jones County made a comeback to lead 5-3 and then the Falcons tried to claw back into the game with a solo home run by Kaitlin Evans to make the game 7-4. The final score was 9-5 in favor of Jones County Community College.

The Falcons couldn’t come up with offense in the second game and lost 5-0 to Lincoln Land Community College in the elimination game of the tournament. Sarah Westhoff started pitching for the Falcons.
