Defense is Key to First Volleyball Win for San Marcos

Erin Holehouse and Taylor Hantgin came up with clutch plays on defense in the fourth set, sealing a 25-19, 15-25, 25-21, 25-18 San Marcos girls volleyball win at Arroyo Grande on Tuesday night.

It was the first win over the season for the Royals (1-3).

Holehouse and Hantgin each had five digs in the fourth set.

"Defense and passing was the determining factor in the win," said co-coach Tina Brown.

Libero Delaney Werner set the tone on defense with 21 digs. Outside hitter Jenna Macfarlane also got into the act with 15 digs to go along with her team-high 11 kills.

"Jenna continues to be solid for us, positng her first double-double of the season," said Brown.

Middles Kristine Fimlaid and Molly Kirkbridge added to the attack to 9 and 7 kills, respectively.

"It was a great team effort overall coming up big on the road," said Brown

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!
