EAST BEND - The Lady Falcons kicked off their season in a big way Friday night in Hays.

Forbush blew out North Wilkes 16-0 in three innings to pick up its first win of the season in dominating fashion.

Senior ace Shey Steelman, who recently signed to pitch for Surry Community College next year, earned the ‘W’ with three strikeouts on the night.

Savannah Henry plated four runs in the game, including a bases-clearing double in the first to power the Falcons offensively.

Forbush returns to the field Tuesday night against West Wilkes.
