Dominance across the board helped the Hays High softball team score a critical 12-3 win over Westlake April 13 that kept the team in the running for a possible district championship. Spearheading that effort was pitcher Katie Noble who collected nine strikeouts over seven innings of work. Meanwhile on offense, Hays’ Mia Liscano aided the effort with three hits while Megan Kalnar and Emma Morales each had two hits. Infielder Julissa Vasquez finished with four RBIs, two of which came via a home run, along with Noble who tallied two of her three RBIs in the game off a home run. However, a Friday setback to Austin High now puts Hays only a half-game ahead of Bowie entering the final week of the regular season. Hays hosted Del Valle in its regular season home finale Tuesday, then travels to play at Bowie Friday with the district title possibly on the line.
