Dons Brandon Sanchez, Sloan Hanson Earn All-CIF D1 Soccer Honors

Midfielder Brandon Sanchez and defender Sloan Hanson of Santa Barbara High have been named to the All-CIF-Southern Section Division 1 soccer team.

Sanchez is a senior who has signed with Loyola Marymount while Hanson is a junior.

The pair helped Santa Barbara traverse a difficult playoff road to the Division 1 Final. The Dons defeated a solid Redondo team in the opener, won in overtime at Santa Margarita on Sanchez's third goal of the game, upset No. 1 Paramount and prevailed at No. 4 Los Alamitos on a last-minute goal in the second overtime. They lost 3-1 to Loyola in the final.

Loyola forward and Boston College-bound Elliot Smith-Hastie was named the Player of the Year and Cubs coach Chris Walter was recognized as Coach of the Year.

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!
