SBCC Outslugs Hancock for First WSC Win, 14-9

SBCC sent 13 batters to the plate in the top of the sixth and scored nine runs on Tuesday on the way to a 14-9 WSC softball victory at Hancock in Santa Maria.

The Vaqueros led 3-1, fell behind 6-3 after five innings, then erupted for nine runs to take a 12-6 advantage. SBCC is 4-8 overall and 1-1 in conference.

Seven Vaqueros had at least two hits as they rapped out a season-high 17 hits. Shelby Featherston led the way, going 3-5 with a double, a triple and three RBIs. Hannah Weaver was 2-3 with two RBIs and leadoff hitter Samantha Yanes was 2-5 with a pair of RBIs.

Kaelyn Whitten drove in the last three runs in the sixth with a pinch-hit, two-out double that cleared the bases. Kayana Diaz had an RBI single in the seventh and Featherston reached on an error, then scored on a passed ball.

Paige Powell went the first five innings in the circle and got her first win for the Vaqueros. Carson Dunkley made her first appearance in relief and pitched the last two innings, allowing two earned runs on five hits.

The Vaqueros will play three games at home this weekend, taking on L.A. Pierce in a WSC contest on Friday at 2:30 p.m., then hosting Sadddleback in a non-conference doubleheader on Saturday at 11 a.m. and 1 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!
