Kylie Koeper was recognized from the girls team and Mitch Cota received the honor from the Cardinal boys squad. They led their teams to three league victories last week.

Koeper sparked Bishop to victories over Cate, Villanova and Thacher, moving the Cardinals into sole possession of second place in the Frontier League with an 8-2 record. Koeper scored 13 points and grabbed seven rebounds against Cate, had a double-double of 12 points, 10 rebounds versus Villanova and scored 16 points in the win over Thacher.

Cota put up some big numbers for the Bishop boys in two wins over Malibu and another against Santa Clara. He scored 23 points in the first Malibu game, had 16 points, including 12 in the second half, in the win over Santa Clara and capped the week with a 30-point effort in the rematch with Malibu. The three wins put the Cardinals in second place in the Tri-Valley League at 6-2.

The honorable mention choices for the awards included Anthony Cota (Westmont track), Diego Riker (Dos Pueblos basketball), Jake Holton (SBCC baseball), Camila Casanueva (Dos Pueblos basketball), Lauren McCoy (Westmont basketball) and Aliceah Hernandez (UCSB basketball).

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!
