McCoy scored 18 points to lead Westmont past MidAmerica Nazarene, 65-54, and advance the Warriors to the NAIA Women’s Basketball Tournament National Semifinals on Monday night.

In earlier games at the national tournament in Billings, Mont., McCoy scored 26 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in a 57-51 win over Cumberland, Tenn., and had 12 points, eight boards in a 77-65 victory over Loyola of New Orleans.

McCoy is now Westmont’s all-time leading scorer with 1,503 points.

Just days after helping San Marcos win its first CIF-Southern Section basketball title and first CIF State Tournament game, Allen competed in the high jump at the Maurice Greene Invitational at Oaks Christian and cleared 6-foot-10, setting a school record that stood for more than 30 years

The previous mark was 6-9, set by Mark Moran in 1986.

The honorable mention choices for this week’s awards include Curren Malhotra (Dos Pueblos volleyball), Zach Steinberger (SBCC golf), Minna Wyttenbach (Dos Pueblos track & field) and Aliyah Huerta-Leipner (San Marcos softball)

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!
