Isabella Gregson Fires a Shutout for SBCC’s First Conference Win

Isabella Gregson pitched a complete-game 4-0 shutout over Oxnard for SBCC's first WSC softball win on Thursday.

Gregson kept the Condors off the bases through the first three innings. In the fourth, Oxnard hit three singles to load the bases. But Gregson was able to shut down the threat by striking out two in a row to end the inning.

The game was scoreless until the fifth. Chloe Wells and Emily Bland started the SBCC rally with back-to-back singles. A walk from Madison Foster loaded the bases for Sloane Greely, who knocked in the Vaqueros' first run of the game. Gregson helped her own cause with a fielder's-choice RBI before Oxnard retired the final out of the inning.

In the top of the sixth, the Vaqueros scored two insurance runs with singles from Kayla Sanchez, Brandi Almaraz, and Chloe Wells, who was 2 for 4 on the day. Emily Bland, who was 3 for 4 with two RBIs, scored Sanchez and Almaraz on a single.

Gregson retired the next 10 batters while only walking one, to clinch the win for the Vaqueros.

SBCC nex plays on Saturday at Riverside.

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!
