SBCC Softball Swept by Hancock in Doubleheader

Bailey Killough tossed a 3-hitter in the first game and a 5-hitter in the second on Tuesday, leading Hancock to a 5-0 and 10-2 softball sweep of visiting SBCC. The second game was called after five innings by the eight-run rule.

Killough (9-1) struck out five and walked two in the opener. Maggie Jackson singled in the first, Sydney Townes singled in the fifth and Connie Towne doubled in the seventh for the Vaqueros (9-8, 4-4). Emily Gantt homered for first-place Hancock 13-4, 7-1) and the Bulldogs stole five bases.

Jackson was 2-3 in the second game.

Three SBCC pitchers gave up seven hits in the first game and walked seven with a hit batter. The Vaqueros walked five and hit four in the nightcap.

Townes staked the Vaqueros to a 2-0 lead with a two-run single in the second inning of Game 2. The Bulldogs responded with 10 in the third on five hits, four walks and one hit batter.

SBCC continues its nine-game road trip on Thursday at Cuesta with the first pitch 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!
