Byrd, Gable homer to lift Faulkner past Falcons 3-0
MONTGOMERY, Ala. - Faulkner’s Erin Byrd and Cassie Gable each homered to secure the 3-0 over Notre Dame College at Wynn Field this afternoon. Game two was canceled due to weather.

Katy Wiggins moved to 2-0 on the season with the shutout. The senior allowed seven hits and tallied four strikeouts through seven innings.
