Bishop Diego Gives 7th-Ranked Santa Clara a Battle

Seventh-ranked Santa Clara scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh inning and edged Bishop Diego, 3-2, in a Frontier League softball game on Thursday.

Bishop Diego scored single runs in the first and second innings and led 2-1 after six innings.

"I am very proud of the way we were competitive against a very good team the whole game, we just couldn't close it out," said Bishop Diego coach John Ceriale.

Miranda Alvarez had a double and Kara Murray, Sarah Leicht, and Emma Burdette had singles. Leicht and Burdette drove in the runs.

"This was a good stepping stone for us, as they are one of the top teams in the league," Ceriale said. "It gives us some  confidence going into the rest of the season."

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
