Bishop Diego’s Will Goodwin has been named to the All-CIF-Southern Section Division 7 baseball team.

A three-sport athletic at Bishop, Goodwin led the Cardinals on a run of nine straight wins and a berth in the Division title 7 semifinals. 

The junior pitcher and third baseman batted .305 and posted a pitching record of 6-5 with a 1.85 earned run average, 61 strikeouts and only 10 walks in 72 innings.

A total of eight baseball players from Santa Barbara County received All-CIF baseball honors.

In Division 6, Paul Navarro of Santa Maria was named the Player of the Year and Rick Hebert the Coach of the Year after leading the Saints to the championship.

Navarro batted .336 for a Saints team that went 21-11-1 and blanked Moreno Valley 9-0 in the title game.

Two other Santa Maria players were named to the division honor squad: sophomore Tommy Herrera and junior Trevor Garcia. Herrera batted .336 with 13 doubles, two triples, a homer and 18 RBI. Garcia batted .330 with 13 doubles and 16 RBI.

Dunn School slugger Ethan Cloyd, who hit an eye-popping .605 with eight home runs and 29 RBI, also earned Division 6 honors.

Righetti’s Matt Sauer and Alex Castellanos were named to the Division 3 team after leading the Warriors to the final.

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!
