Hailee Rios Hurls No-Hitter in Rout of Cabrillo

Hailee Rios was near-perfect in the San Marcos softball team's 15-0 no-hit shutout of non-league opponent Cabrillo on Tuesday.

Rios struck out 15 of the 20 batters she faced. The only baserunners allowed reached on a walk and hit-by-pitch.

In addition to the stellar pitching performance, Rios went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored.

Aliyah Huerta-Leipner and Hailey Fryklund each went 4-for-5, with three runs scored and three RBI, respectively.

San Marcos (4-2) scored the first three runs on consecutive singles by Huerta-Leipner, Rios and Fryklund, followed by a sacrifice fly by Claire Early and a single by Megan Cunnison for a 3-0 lead.  San Marcos added two more runs in the fourth inning on an Alex Pitchford single, a Huerta-Leipner double and Rios single for a 5-0 score.

San Marcos scored two more runs in the 5th on a leadoff single by Early, a fielder’s choice by Morgan Jensen, in which Early was safe at second base, and a two RBI single by Cunnison for a 7-0 score.

San Marcos sent 14 hitters to the plate in the sixth inning, getting seven hits, one hit batter, and two Cabrillo fielding errors, to score a total of 8 runs.

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!
