A four-run third frame March 4 provided more than enough firepower for the Hays High softball team as it cruised past Smithson Valley 9-2. The four-inning contest was the final game of Day 1 competition in the inaugural Hays/Johnson softball tournament. Highlighting the night was a two-run RBI single from Mia Liscano and an RBI double from Julissa Vasquez in the second frame. Hays’ Aneesa Martinez added a run on a RBI triple in the third inning. In the circle, Hays’ Katie Noble notched five strikeouts over four innings of work. Hays High infielder Mia Liscano leaps in celebration after she tagged out a baserunner who attempted to steal second during the team’s Day 1 game against Smithson Valley.
