SPORTS ROUNDUP: DP softball takes victory over San Marcos


The Dos Pueblos High softball team edged out San Marcos on Friday, winning the home game 5-4.

“It was a big win for us today. Our goal all year was to win the league, but we had some big hurdles to overcome with defending champion San Marcos and Lompoc,” said Dos Pueblos coach Mike Gerken. “Going 4-1 against these two good teams is quite an achievement. We still have work to do to get there, but this victory puts us in a good position, given that SM and Lompoc still have to meet twice.

Leading hitters for Dos Pueblos included Bella Nuno, who went 2-4 with a home run and two RBIs; Mia Reveles, who had a three-hit day; and Leila Chisholm, who had two hits.

The game went scoreless until the third inning, when San Marcos drew first blood scoring on an error. Dos Pueblos answered in the bottom half of the inning, when a Chisholm single set up a two-run homer for Nuno. The Chargers weren’t finished, scoring one more in the frame when Reveles singled and stole the second, before finally being trailed by a two-out hit from Lacy Spear.

Reveles threw his own run in the fourth, singular to Nuno, who had reached after narrowly missing his second homer of the game.

San Marcos threatened to close the lead in the fifth, but a climax reel catch by Chisholm robbed San Marcos’ Kamila Morales of a potential two-run double.

“Leila’s hold in the 5th was huge. It was possibly the best hold in a clutch situation I have ever seen. She also kicked out a girl at second when trying to stretch a doubles single. Combined with his hitting today, it was one of the most complete games an outfielder could have,” Gerken said.

Dos Pueblos extended their lead to 5-1 late in the fifth after back-to-back doubles from Riley Moroe and Reveles.

San Marcos made a comeback in the seventh, opening the inning with back-to-back singles from Kayla Aguilar and Bella Cruz. Aguilar scored on a brace from Gigi Gritt, who scored with Cruz on a two-run single from Morales. The threat ended with a strikeout from Georgia Wilson of Dos Pueblos.

“I’m happy and proud of our girls, especially our seniors Mackenzie Ensign, Jessica Reveles, Lacy Spear and Leila Chisholm who picked up a win in their last match against SM,” Gerken said.

The Chargers improved to 10-1 in the league with the victory, with an overall record of 14-4.

Gavin was dishing out nice hitting sets to all of our front row, back row hitters and more recently he’s been setting up more combo plays. Our passing is getting better every game, giving Gavin 3-4 options as to who he can set up, which kept our opponents guessing who he was going to set up next.
