The San Marcos boys’ volleyball team continued its winning streak Tuesday night by beating Bishop Diego, 3-1, on the Cardinals’ home court. The Royals improved to 4-0 this season under the leadership of new head coach Roger Kuntz. Exceptional spiking by senior phenom Andrew Grimes kept the Cardinals on their heels while Neil Greene, Erik Holliday, Michael York and John Newton all logged impressive hits and blocks at the net.

Former San Marcos coach Jon Lee was on hand at the match to watch the protégés he mentored and lead for the past three years rise to the occasion to beat a competitive Cardinals team. Bishop staged an impressive second game win to tie the match, 1-1, before the Royals regained composure and took the remaining two games and the match win.

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!
