Defense Steps Up for Dos Pueblos in Sweep of Newbury Park

Dos Pueblos improved to 3-0 on the young girls volleyball season with a sweep against visiting Newbury Park on Tuesday at Sovine Gym. The scores were 25-22 25-19, 25-20.

"I'm really satisfied with the win," DP coach Megan O'Carroll said. "Newbury Park was a solid team with a strong attack that challenged our blockers and defense."

The Chargers got a solid defensive match from libero Alison Minnich and got good passing from Becky McKinny and Oliveya Leon in the back row.

"Alison Minnich was incredibly steady for us throughout the entire match and allowed our setters, Mikayla Butzke and Grace Crozier, to spread out the ball throughout our front row," said O'Carroll.

She added: "I still don't feel like we've played our best volleyball yet. We're getting closer with each match and we know what we need to improve on, it's just a matter of executing."

The Chargers travel to Arroyo Grande on Thursday.

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!
