SBCC Hosting Annual Quad Volleyball Tournament

The four-team field will play matches at noon and at 4 p.m. Saturday in the Sports Pavilion.

Santa Barbara City College will host its annual Quad Tournament on Saturday with women’s volleyball matches at noon and 4 p.m. in the Sports Pavilion.

This year’s four-team field features last year’s state runner-up, Golden West, and the No. 5-ranked team in the preseason, Fullerton, in the Western State Conference vs. Orange Empire battle. At noon, SBCC (1-3) will take on Golden West (4-0), and two-time defending WSC champion Cuesta (4-3) will battle Fullerton (2-2). At 4 p.m., the Vaqueros meet Fullerton and Cuesta will face Golden West.

The cost is $5 for the noon matches or $8 for the day.

Golden West (4-0) has won 17 state championships, including 12 in a row from 1993 to 2004. Rick McLaughlin, the Rustlers’ coach the past two years, is now the men’s coach at UCSB. Golden West finished second in the state last year, losing a one-game final to El Camino.

SBCC, led by Samantha Potter and Chelsey Forrey, roared back from a 2-0 deficit in games Tuesday to post its first win in a five-game marathon at Santa Monica.

“We’ve played Pierce and Santa Rosa this year, and they’re in the same mold as Golden West,” SBCC coach Ed Gover said. “This is a good tournament because it saves on travel and we get two matches for the price of one.”

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!
