Dons Have San Marcos’ Number, at Every Level

Santa Barbara outmatches Royals, quickly sweeping every game.

It was men vs. boys in the first two decisive games for Santa Barbara on Tuesday night, with jump serves and solid blocks humbling any San Marcos resistence.

In game three, the Royals mustered some strength and a 20-18 lead against the Dons’ reserves, but Andy Abayan’s jump serve run put Santa Barbara back in control for the 3-0 win. The scores were 25-7, 25-9 and 25-21.

Taylor Fauntleroy delivered six kills and four aces for the Dons, while setter Dylan Hanseth served up 13 assists.

Andrew Grimes had nine kills for the Royals, but the rest of the team together could only notch seven.

The Dons, ranked No. 2 in CIF Division 2AA, take on Dos Pueblos on Thursday to determine control in the Channel League.

Santa Barbara swept the junior varsity match 25-14 and 25-13 and swept the frosh/soph match 25-21 and 25-13.

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!
