Dos Pueblos Sets Up Volleyball Showdown With Santa Barbara

Stanford-bound Eli Wopat put away a match-high 23 kills, and Dos Pueblos got good production in the middle in a four-set win over Ventura at Sovine Gym. The scores were 25-14, 25-16, 23-25, 25-20.

Elliott Brainerd and Adam Shields combined for 19 kills in middle. Shields had 13 kills and Brainerd put down six on 12 attempts. He also had two blocks.

"The boys played great tonight," said DP coach Ehren Hug. "We were in system a lot the first two sets and our offense was able to flow. In set three, Ventura's serving picked up and our ball control suffered a bit. They fought hard down the stretch but Ventura was scrappy and pulled out the plays they needed."

The Chargers got back to business in the fourth set victory and put the Cougars away on a kill by Wopat.

Dos Pueblos (9-7, 4-1) plays at Santa Barbara on Thursday with a chance to tie the Dons for first place.

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!
