Hailee Rios Makes Most of Rare Opportunity, Lifts San Marcos to 5-4 Softball Win

Hailee Rios didn't have many opportunities to hit the ball in Friday's Channel League against Ventura because the Cougars refused to throw anything near the strike zone.

But they did in the fifth inning and the San Marcos slugger made them pay, hitting a single to score Savannah Tait for the eventual winning run in a 5-4 victory at home.

Rios then finished off game for starter Aliyah Huerta-Leipner in the seventh and earned the save.

Huerta-Leipner allowed eight hits and four earned runs while walking one and striking out six.

Trailing 3-1, the Royals took a 4-3 lead in the bottom of third on a three-run homer by Hailey Fryklund.

Ventura tied the score in the fifth, but San Marcos answered in the bottom of the inning. Tait tripled to lead off the inning and Rios followed with her RBI single.

Alex Pitchford went 2-for-3 with a RBI double in the second inning.

San Marcos is 15-5 overall and 5-1 in league. The Royals host Buena on Tuesday.

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!
