Madison McNamee, SBCC Softball Slaim L.A. Valley

 Madison McNamee belted a grand slam in the first inning on Friday and Lauren Bodden added a solo shot in the second as SBCC blasted L.A. Valley 10-1 in a nonconference softball game at Valley Glen.

 Those were the first two homers of the year for the Vaqueros, who improved their perfect start to 6-0. Santa Barbara has scored 10 or more runs in four of six games and has outscored its opponents 52-16.

 Monica Salas went 3-4 with two RBIs for the Vaqueros, who led 7-1 after five innings and finished with a season-high 14 hits. In her last four games, Salas is batting .625 (10-16) with eight RBIs.

 Rebecca Pullen (2-0) got the pitching win.

 “We were hot at the start and then we started stringing together hits and took advantage of their errors,” said SBCC pitching coach Kailey Snyder.

 The Vaqueros will play at Cerritos, ranked No. 9 in the state and No. 4 in Southern California, on Saturday, starting at 1:30 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!
