ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — In last week's win over Santa Fe, Zay Martinez was perfect on the mound — retiring all nine batters that she faced.

The Albuquerque High softball player had a lot on her mind earlier that day. The day had marked 2 years since Martinez had lost her friend Danielle Cordova to a tragic car accident.

"I knew that in that moment I just had to be there for my team and work as hard as I could," Martinez said. "I wore a ribbon in her honor, I have writing on my hat in honor of her. Every single time I step out on that field, it's for my team and it's for her."
