Janet Salas Drives in 3 Runs in SBCC Softball Win

Leadoff hitter Emily Bland went 3-5 and Janet Salas drove in three runs on Friday, leading SBCC to a 6-5 softball victory over Saddleback in Mission Viejo.

The Vaqueros (3-0) took a 2-1 lead in the second on an RBI double by Kayla Sanchez and a run-scoring single by Chloe Wells. They scored three more in the fifth to stretch the lead to 6-1. 

Salas, a freshman catcher from Dos Pueblos High, delivered a sacrifice fly in the third and a two-run triple in the fifth. The Gauchos (0-2) scored two in the bottom of the fifth and two more in the seventh before Isabella Gregson capped her complete game by getting Haley Rose on a flyout to right field.

Gregson (2-0) allowed five runs (three earned) on 10 hits with three strikeouts and four walks.

Sanchez went 2-3 with two RBIs and Wells, Sloane Greeley and Madison Foster all had two of their team’s season-high 14 hits.

Santa Barbara hit .400 (6-15) with runners in scoring position.

The Vaqueros will play a doubleheader on Saturday at San Diego Mesa. They’ll take on Imperial Valley at 1 p.m. and San Diego Mesa at 3 p.m.

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!
