Volleyball: Simler Sparkles in SBCC’s Fourth Straight Win

Jenny Simler serves the last seven points, acing the final three serves in the sweep.

Jenny Simler served the last seven points on Tuesday night and aced the final three serves as the Santa Barbara City College women’s volleyball team stayed hot with a 25-10, 25-11, 25-10 sweep of Oxnard in the Sports Pavilion.

The Vaqueros improved to 7-9 overall and 5-1 in the WSC with their fourth straight win and sixth in seven matches.

“It’s always fun to play at home, and we gave a good steady performance,” coach Ed Gover said. “Everyone got in and they all played in a good rhythm.”

The Vaqueros got 16 kills from their middle attack with Tara Ahern notching 10 and Angelica Smith adding six. Left-hander Maria Mayer had seven kills.

SBCC recorded 12 aces with Simler and setter Amelia Shugrue collecting three each.

“Jenny serves all day in practice to the A team, so she has to be good,” Gover said. “It was great to watch, so nice to see a kid excel in a setting like that. And Roxanne Solomita did a great job of setting in the third game.”

The Vaqueros will travel to Moorpark on Friday for a first-place showdown with the unbeaten Raiders.

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!
