Bishop Diego No. 1 in CIF-SS Football; Lompoc, Santa Barbara Break Into Top 10

Bishop Diego is ranked No. 1 in this week's CIF-SS Division 4 football poll, while two local schools broke into the top 10 in their respective divisions after winning Week Zero games.

The Cardinals, elevated to Division 4 after winning the Division 6 title last season, rolled to a 42-0 win over Cabrillo. Senior quarterback Jake Engel fired four touchdown passes in the first 12 minutes of the game.

Bishop faces St. Bonaventure on Friday at Ventura College in a battle of Division 4 teams.

Lompoc, which plays in the highest division of any team in the area, was ranked third in Division 10 after its 48-28 win at Simi Valley last week.

The Braves hit the long road again, playing at perennial power St. Paul in Santa Fe Springs.

Santa Barbara, which opened with a 42-14 win at Buena, is ninth in the Division 7 poll, just behind Santa Ynez, which fell 17-14 at Nipomo in its opener. 

The Dons play their home opener against Ventura at SBCC on Friday while No. 8 Santa Ynez hosts Carpinteria.

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!
