Volleyball: SBCC Falls to Bakersfield in Five

The Vaqueros took a 2-1 lead in sets but couldn't close out the nonconference match.

After taking a 2-1 lead in sets, the Santa Barbara City College volleyball team couldn’t close out its nonconference match with Bakersfield on Friday night, falling 3-2 at the Sports Pavilion.

The Renegades, ranked 20th in California, improved to 9-3 with the 18-25, 25-22, 15-25, 25-22, 15-8 victory.

Vaquero coach Ed Gover shuffled his lineup, with libero Vanessa Shaw playing outside hitter and Chelsey Forrey taking her spot at libero. Jessica Tune led SBCC (1-8) with 22 kills, and Maria Mayer had 10. Forrey was the dig leader with 22, followed by Shaw with 15.

“It was an excellent match, very competitive,” Gover said. “They earned that win, we didn’t give it to them. This is a big step forward for us.”

SBCC completes its nonconference slate on Saturday with a 6 p.m. home match against Cuyamaca of San Diego.

Dave Loveton is Santa Barbara City College‘s sports information specialist.

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!
