Unbeaten Buena Dominates All-Channel League Softball

Led by MVP Brooke Yanez, Buena dominated the All-Channel League softball team.

The Bulldogs, who went undefeated (27-0-1) and won the CIF-SS Division 4 title against league rival San Marcos, landed five players on the first team.

League and CIF runner-up San Marcos had three first-team selections: senior Hailee Rios, junior Aliyah Huerta-Leipner and freshman Savannah Tait. Rios, the Royals' star pitcher and leading hitter, signed with Fresno State.

Dos Pueblos senior and Purdue-bound Siena Wagner and junior Nova Sinskul also made the first team.

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!
