The 805 Santa Barbara Water Polo Club’s 16-under "A" team defended its title at the 11th annual National Club Championships held in the Inland Empire last weekend.

The 16s defeated CHAWP, Palos Verdes and Diablo in pool play before crushing perennial power 680 Water Polo Club, 10-3, in the crossover game.   The 16s then shut down Commerce, 6-1, in the semifinal match and overwhelmed Diablo, 10-4, in the championship.

Led by Coaches Cathy Neushul, Pam Tanase, and Keith Leggett, 805’s National Club Champions include Catherine Ahumada, Lily Akin, Jordan Duggan, Sara Engmyr,  Anna Hepp, Abbi Hill,  Olivia Kistler, Fiona Kuesis,  Giselle Lewis, Sophie Leggett,  Sarah Owens, Chloe Pena, Kayla Peacock and Grace Raisin.  Anna Cable went the distance in goal for the champions. 

Fiona Kuesis and Chloe Pena were named co-tournament MVPs.

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!
