SBCC Drops WSC Softball Opener at Bakersfield

Kylee Fahy tossed a three-hitter on Thursday, and Bakersfield got a run in the sixth to slip past SBCC 2-1 in a WSC North softball opener at Bakersfield.

Fahy struck out eight and walked one. Calista Wendell was nearly as impressive for the Vaqueros (8-7, 0-1), throwing a six-hitter and allowing one earned run.

Bakersfield scored the winning run in the bottom of the sixth when Chavez singled, went to second on a wild pitch and scored on a double by Haleigh Hutton.

“It was definitely a pitchers’ showdown today,” said Vaquero coach Justine Bosio. “Calista threw a great game. I was very proud of her for stepping up and keeping us in the game the entire time. She held a strong Bakersfield team to one earned run.

“Their pitcher kept us guessing at the plate and we just weren't able to get runners on base to score the go-ahead run. These close games are fun to be a part of because as a coaching staff, we are able to watch our girls’ training come into play. It just didn't end up in our favor this time."

The Vaqueros will host Hancock on Tuesday at 2:30 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!
