South Whidbey traveled a long way for nothing. When the Falcon baseball team arrived at Sultan High School on Wednesday, they changed into their uniforms, ran through drills, heard the game was canceled and loaded back onto the bus.

The South Whidbey softball team trailed 5-2 by the fifth inning. A couple of walks, two runs on pitches in the dirt and a pair of errors gave Lakewood a 9-2 edge by the sixth.
