Dustin Demeter of Dos Pueblos had the baseball game of a lifetime and Erica Schroeder of San Marcos continued to tear it up on the track last weekend.

The performances earned them Athlete of the Week honors at Monday’s Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table press luncheon at Harry’s Plaza Café.

The University of Hawaii-bound Demeter went on a tear against Buena, blasting three homers and driving in seven runs during a 13-5 victory that put the Chargers back in first place in the Channel League.

Schroeder captured the demanding 800-1600 double at the Santa Barbara County Track and Field Championships last Saturday at Carpinteria. The junior running sensation set meet records in both races, clocking 2:16.25 in the 800 and 4:57.19 in the 1600, breaking the marks of Kristen Trichler of San Marcos (2003) and Addi Zerrenner of Dos Pueblos (2012), respectively.

The athletes receiving honorable mention accolades include Jenny Nnoli (San Marcos track), Natasha Feshbach (Santa Barbara High  track), Jade Sinskul (Dos Pueblos softball), Addison Seale, (SBCC swimming), Kiasa Salgado (Santa Barbara High boys track),  David Martinez (Carpinteria baseball) and Chris Jones (Dos Puebos boys track).

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!
