Dynamic duo make Falcons history
- Within a 48-hour stretch, Lauren Hynes and Rachel Nasland did what high school sports historians don’t think has ever been done before.

Nasland, a freshman, hurled the first one on May 11 in a 6-0 league victory over Mission Hills.
Hynes, a sophomore, followed suit two days later in a 7-0 league win against Fallbrook.
Nasland struck out a career-high 16 batters and allowed one walk. She reached double digits in strikeouts for the sixth time in 11 starts. Nasland struck out 13 batters (her previous high) three times.
Hynes struck out seven batters and allowed one walk.
Hynes led the Falcons offensively in both games. She had two hits with a double and two RBI in the Mission Hills game, and had two hits and knocked in three runs against Fallbrook.
