Just six months after graduating from Dos Pueblos High, Kiara "Kiki" Pickett is a NCAA national champion.

Pickett started for the Stanford women’s soccer team that won the national title on Sunday in Orlando with a 3-2 victory over UCLA. She played on defense and in the midfield.

It was Stanford’s second national title in women’s soccer.

The victory at Orlando City Stadium gave Stanford 114 NCAA team championships.

Also, Stanford extended two NCAA team records, winning a title for the 42nd consecutive academic year and capturing its 51st women's championship.

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!
