SBCC Softball Scores Two Comeback Victories

Maddie Foster had three hits, with a triple and four RBIs on Friday, and SBCC rallied for a pair of victories on the first day of the Mt. San Jacinto President’s Day Softball Tournament at Wheatfield Park in Menifee.

The Vaqueros (6-5) erased a 3-1 deficit with three runs in the fifth to beat Mt. San Jacinto 4-3 in the morning game. They survived a six-run fourth inning by L.A. Mission and overcame an 8-3 deficit with six runs of their own in the fifth on the way to a 10-8 victory.

Santa Barbara was trailing L.A. Mission 8-3 in the top of the fifth when Foster unloaded a two-out, two-run triple that tied the game 8-8. She scored on a throwing error to give the Vaqueros a 9-8 advantage.

Foster, a freshman second baseman from Frederick, Colo., was 2-4 in the second game with three RBIs and two runs. She had an RBI single in the third inning of Game 2 and Sloane Greeley knocked in two runs with a single that gave the Vaqueros a 3-1 lead.

Brandi Almaraz was 3-4 against Mission with a triple and two runs. Kayla Sanchez was 2-4 with two RBIs and Emily Bland went 2-4.

Calista Wendell pitched all seven innings in the opener, holding the Eagles to three runs on eight hits with five strikeouts and no walks. Wendell was 2-3 at the plate with a triple and two runs.

Wendell (4-2) tossed the last three innings of the second game to pick up the win.

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!
