Justice is Served as Falcons Beat Edmonds-Woodway

  • Written by Derek Johnson

As Justice Dillman strode to the plate, he had a hunch of what was to come. Moments later, the burly third baseman slashed an RBI double to drive in teammate Trent Boyd. This propelled Woodinville past Edmonds-Woodway 2-1 in extra innings last Wednesday afternoon at Falcon Field.

“I don’t want to be cocky about it, but I kind of visualized it, and then it happened,” Dillman said with a big grin.

The win enabled Woodinville to open the 2019 season with a 1-0 record.

The Lady Falcons aren’t messing around this year. Oh sure, the girls often giggle in the dugout and have their usual fun -- as it should be for high school sports.

But now a palpable urgency fills the air. Take Bailey Burger-Moore for example. The senior first baseman is the bedrock of this ball club.

Q& A with coach Dani Tachell

Q: Last season was a rare occasion when the Falcons did not make it to the State tourney in Spokane. How did the kids react during the off-season?
 
Tachell: Off season was very focused. We have a ton of seniors coming back, nine seniors this year. All of whom have been to Spokane several times in their careers. So getting that taste of defeat and not being to experience that didn’t sit well with them.
Our seniors led our off-season workouts. A lot of kids showed up. They want to come back this year and change things up.

Falcons look to build on Historic 2018 season
