SBCC Softball Wins Season Opener in Justine Bosio’s Coaching Debut

Sloane Greeley and Jasmine Manson each had two hits, and the Santa Barbara City College softball team jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning and defeated San Diego CC, 8-0, in Justine Bosio's debut as the Vaqueros' softball coach on Friday at Pershing Park.

Emily Bland scored the first run of the season on a bases-loaded passed ball. Samantha Yanes drove in Brandi Alamarez and Kayla Sanchez brought in Greeley.

That was enough for starting pitcher Isabella Gregson. She allowed three hits in the five-inning shutout.

“It felt good finally step on the field with my team,” said Gregson, a sophomore from Bishop Diego. “All the hard work we have put in paid off in this game, and I hope we continue to step on the field this way throughout the season.”

Bosio liked what she saw from her team in the season opener.

“It was great to watch the girls tonight," she said.  "We came out with a plan and were able to execute it. Anytime you can shut a team out, it’s a great day.”

SBCC plays a nonconference game Saturday at Cuesta.

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!
