Going in as the top seed in the tournament, the Lady Falcons won three straight games to secure the regional title.  They opened the tournament Friday with a 14-3 win over Cottey College and followed that with a 6-1 victory over St. Louis Community College.  That set up the Saturday game against Mineral Area with that win advancing Coach Brad Wallach’s team to the District J playoffs.
