San Marcos Scores Late to Win; Carpinteria Softball Romps; Laguna VB Rolls

Aliyah Huerta-Leipner tripled home the go-ahead run in the seventh and Sarah Douglas followed with a RBI single, lifting San Marcos to a 3-1 softball victory at Pioneer Valley on Wednesday.

With the score tied 1-1, Hailey Fryklund led off the top of the 7th with a single to left center.  She moved to second on a wild pitch and went to third on a ground out. Huerta-Leipner followed with a triple to score Fryklund and give San Marcos a 2-1 lead. Douglas singled in Huerta-Leipner for a 3-1 lead.

Hailee Rios, in relief of Huerta-Leipner, pitched three innings of shutout ball and allowed only one hit to pick up the win.  She struck out five. The pitchers combined on a three-hitter and didn't allow an earned run.

Pioneer Valley took a 1-0 lead in the sixth inning and held it until the sixth. Alana Ochoa led off the inning with an infield single and moved to second on a misplayed throw to first.  Cara Christian singled down the third-base line, scoring Ochoa to tie the game 1-1.

San Marcos (6-2) got two hits from Fryklund, Ochoa, Huerta-Leipner and Douglas.

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!
