Santa Barbarians U10 Girls Win Kickoff Classic Soccer Championship

The “Santa Barbarians” U10 girls AYSO all-stars team from Santa Barbara was named U10 Girls Champions of the Kickoff Classic Soccer Tournament in Downey on Sunday.

They defeated Canyon Country in the championship game 3-2.

It was a startling come-from-behind win. In the first five minutes of the championship game, the Santa Barbarians quickly fell behind by two goals and had two players suffer injuries.

However, they battled back throughout the game with an aggressive offense and smothering defense to take the lead late in the game.

Team members include Rachel Johnson, Caroline Mikkelson, Sara Welkom, Balzhana Lavine, Heijh Diaz, Halie Bissell, Lily Purvis, Olivia Geyling, Hanady Shaqur and Tal Dassau. The team is coached by Hoss Shaqur with assistant coach Michael Purvis and team manager Rolf Geyling.

— Michael Purvis is an assistant coach for the Santa Barbarians U10 girls’ soccer 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!
