Bishop Diego Basketball Hosting Special Night for First Responders

Bishop Diego is paying tribute to first responders at a basketball doubleheader on Monday, Feb. 5.

Fire, police, medical and military personnel will be admitted free to the night of rivalry games. The Bishop Diego girls team plays Cate at 6 p.m., followed by the boys game between Bishop and Carpinteria at 7:30 p.m.

There will be a special ceremony between games to honor the first responders.

“Due to recent events in our area, the past two months have been difficult for so many, including those of you who have been called upon to serve our communities as firefighters, police officers, medics, and military personnel. We are grateful for the long hours you are working and for the time you have spent away from your own families,” the staffs, students and families of the three schools said in a statement.

All proceeds from ticket sales from the games will be donated to the American Red Cross.

For those unable to attend the special night, Bishop Diego will be showing both games on a live stream for $5.00. All proceeds from the live stream will be donated to the Red Cross.

To sign-up for the broadcast, go to the Bishop Diego web site — — and you will be directed to the link. John Martony has agreed to donate his time to announce both contests. 

For more information and for first responders to RSVP for the game, contact Dr. Cristy McNay at [email protected] or (805) 967-1266, ext. 118, by Friday, Feb. 2.

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!
