Laguna Blanca Stays On Top in Division 6 Volleyball

Laguna Blanca has lost only two sets in posting a 14-1 season record in girls volleyball. The Owls remain the No. 1 team in Division 6 of the CIF-Southern Section.

They play rival Cate on Tuesday before heading into Condor League play. At the end of the regular season, the Owls take on Dos Pueblos. A win over the Division 3 Chargers would complete an unprecedented sweep of the three Santa Barbara public schools. Their only loss this season came in a best-of-three match against Oaks Christian at the Cate Mesa Mixer.

Santa Ynez (11-1) is ranked third in Division 6. The Pirates' only loss came against Dos Pueblos in the season opener.

In boys water polo, Santa Barbara High (9-4) is ranked 10th in Division 1 and Dos Pueblos (5-8) is 10th in Division 2.

Cate and Laguna Blanca are 9th and 10th, respectively, in the Divsion 1 poll for 8-man 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!
