Their dominating performances led their respective teams to victories and earned them Athlete of the Week honors at Monday’s Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table press luncheon.

The San Marcos volleyball team was paced by the “Big Mac Attack” of MacFarlane in wins over Santa Barbara and Buena. She blasted 20 kills with no hitting errors in a road sweep of the Dons and followed that with 15 kills and 11 digs against Buena. The wins evened the Royals’ record at 2-2 in Channel League.

Erwin made a statement as a running back for the CIF-SS Division 10 third-ranked Dos Pueblos football team. The senior, who had been playing wide receiver, rushed for 257 yards on 21 carries and scored four touchdowns in a 49-6 victory over San Luis Obispo. He also caught four passes.

The honorable mention choices for this week include: Libby Dahlberg (Westmont volleyball), Josefine Von Der Burg (SBCC soccer), Erica Schroeder (San Marcos cross country) , Grace Fuss (Cate tennis), Sawyer Rhodes (Santa Barbara High water polo) Dylan Elliott (Dos Pueblos water polo), Hunter Clark (Dos Pueblos cross country) and Demetrius Vinson (SBCC 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!
