UCSB Softball Drops Series Opener at Hawaii

HONOLULU, Hawai'i - UCSB dropped the opening game of its final road series at Hawai'i by a final score of 5-1. The Gauchos had a 7-6 advantage in hits, with sophomore Sierra Altmeyer notching a team-high two.

Santa Barbara (27-22, 7-6) opened the scoring in the top of the first, as senior Kristen Clark made it home off a single to left center by freshman Alyssa Diaz. However, despite being outhit on the day, the Rainbow Wahine (26-18, 5-8) would go on to score the next five runs.

After quickly tying things up with a run in the bottom of the first, Hawai'i would put away the last four runs with a pair of two-run homers by freshman Callee Heen in the fourth and sixth innings. The Rainbow Wahine finished the day with two runners left on base, compared to seven for UCSB.

Clark, Emily Brucelas, Jessica Johnston and Melanie Menor all finished with one hit. Altmeyer was successful in getting on base every time she stepped up to the plate, going 2-for-2 with a walk.

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!
