Laughner slugged three-run home runs in both games of a doubleheader against Righetti.

She led off with homers in both contests, which Dos Pueblos swept, 5-2 and 11-2.

Jake Holton, meanwhile, helped SBCC baseball claim wins with his late game heroics. He drove home both runs in a 2-1 Vaqueros' win over Hancock, while recording his eighth save of the season to preserve the victory and tie a school record. Holton belted a solo homer in the third inning. He capped the day driving home the game-winning run on a sacrifice fly in the eighth inning.

Honorable mention picks for female Athlete of the Week were Allie Jones (San Marcos track and field), Sarah Parson (SBCC swimming) and Kelee Shimizu (SBCC swimming).  

Other candidates for male Athlete of the Week were Nick Oakley (SBHS baseball), Derek True (SBHS baseball) and Nico Martinez (Dos Pueblos baseball).

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!
