Folsom Lake College's Online Newspaper

-MARYSVILLE, CA The Folsom Lake Falcons have enjoyed a recent string of success in terms of our athletics. Consider the Folsom Lake Women’s Soccer team, which, nonexistent just two years ago, already has an overall record of 36-6-3 and is preparing to head into next season with as much “Falcontude” as ever. It’s obvious that FLC’s growing dedication to sports has momentum, and that momentum is currently being carried along by the 2015 Falcons Baseball team. With an inaugural record of 22-13, the gentlemen behind the bats are simply slugging the whole season out of the park.
Stacked with consistent studs such as third baseman Mykhel Lee, shortstop Grant Heisinger, and designated hitter and outfielder Noah Revis-French, the Falcons are on a path of domination that so far has consisted of 10 home runs and a team batting average of .271 over 34 games. For this reason, I am introducing an all new Folsom Lake Talon-exclusive hashtag: #talonted.
Coach’s Update 4/20/15 – “Michael Majeski pretty much did it all Monday night. The usual starting centerfielder for the Falcons took the mound as the starting pitcher for last night's game against Mendocino and turned in possibly the finest outing by an FLC pitcher this season. Majeski pitched seven innings of one-hit ball, did not allow an earned run, and retired the last 15 consecutive batters he faced. That's right, not a single Mendocino batter reached base - after a harmless two-out walk in the second inning - until after Majeski left in the eighth inning. By then, the Falcons had a 6-2 lead and had collected 14 hits. Oh, and Majeski also contributed 3 hits, 3 RBI's, and scored twice, including a first-inning, first-pitch leadoff home run to left field. All nine Falcon starters got at least one hit, including two each for FP Santangelo, Grant Heisinger, and Tyler Kaim. Kaim's sacrifice fly in the 3rd scored Majeski with the Falcon's second run, and his double in the 7th drove in Heisinger with their final run. Will Felton pitched a perfect 9th inning to earn his first save.”
Though they lost their most recent game on Tuesday, April 21, against Laney City College, a chance for redemption presents itself against Napa Valley at 2:30 on Thursday at home.
