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.

August 9, 2014, will forever be marked in the history books as the date Michael Brown was shot by a Ferguson police officer.

It is the aftermath of that event, however, which history will forever remember. The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
