South Whidbey defeats Wolves 8-3 / Baseball

Unable to overcome an early South Whidbey lead, the Coupeville High School baseball team fell to the Falcons 8-3 Wednesday, April 10, in Langley.

South Whidbey scored two runs in the first inning and five in the third to take control of the contest.

The Wolves had one of the best offensive days of the season, matching their season high with three runs in the game by scoring single runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings.

In the fourth, Daniel Olson walked and Gavin Knoblich singled to put the first run on the board.

Matt Hilborn walked and Hawthorne Wolfe singled for the run in the fifth.

Ulrik Wells led off the sixth by being hit by a pitch and eventually scored on Hilborn’s base hit.

Hilborn finished with two hits, while Wolfe and Dane Lucero added base hits to lead the Coupeville offense.

Coupeville (0-8, 0-12) hosts South Whidbey (10-1, 13-1) in the series finale at 4 p.m. Friday, April 12.
