Freshman Athena Saragoza started her varsity basketball career at Santa Barbara High with a bang, helping the Dons win the title at the Bryan Ayers Classic in Lompoc.

The accomplishments by Streett and Saragoza earned them Athlete of the Week honors at Monday’s Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table press luncheon.

Streett’s first big play in Bishop Diego’s 37-6 Division 6 championship-game victory over Golden Valley was blocking an attempted field goal. He then intercepted two passes and blocked an extra point in a dominating defensive performance by the Cardinals. They forced five turnovers in the game.

Saragoza capped an impressive opening week of games for the Dons with a 21-point performance in a 63-43 win over Lompoc in the title game of the Ayers Classic. She scored 23 points in a comeback win against Piedmont and had 13 points in her debut against Pioneer Valley.

The honorable mention picks for the female Athlete of the Week award include Abbi Hill (Dos Pueblos water polo), Alondra Jimenez (Santa Barbara High basketball), Natalie Whiting (Bishop Diego basketball) and Milan McGary (San Marcos basketball).

The male athletes that were considered for the award were Isaiah Veal (Bishop Diego football), Leland King II (UCSB basketball), Jackson Stormo (San Marcos basketball), Chris Avery (Providence basketball), Owen Lambe (Santa Barbara High soccer), Rob Alfaro (Dos Pueblos football).

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!
