San Marcos Squanders Chance with Bases Loaded

Royals rally but can't break through against Hueneme, lose opener, 7-5.


San Marcos rallied in the bottom of the seventh inning Friday, but left the tying and winning runs on base as Hueneme won, 7-5, on opening day of softball season.

The Vikings scored all of their seven runs in the fourth inning with some help from three San Marcos errors.

Cassie Pascoe-Pierce put the Royals on the scoreboard in the bottom of the fourth with a walk and a stolen base. She scored on a wild pitch for the first run of the season.

In the bottom of the seventh, Kelly McKay led off with a single that started a four-run Royals rally. Cady Haskell and Annie Newberg each had RBI singles, but San Marcos left the bases loaded to end the game.

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!
