Dos Pueblos baseball player Dylan Kelley and Cate track & field athlete Elle Smith were recognized for their performances from last week.

The winners from two weeks ago were San Marcos track & field standout Allie Jones and San Marcos swimmer Matt Mills.

Mills, a junior, won the 50 and 100 freestyle races (22.21 seconds and 48.45, respectively) and anchored the Royals’ 200 medley and 400 free relay teams to victories in a Channel League dual meet against Dos Pueblos.

The Stanford-bound Jones set a record in the 100 hurdles at the Santa Barbara Easter Relays. The senior clocked 14.04 seconds, breaking the previous mark of 14.44. One of the top prep multi-event performers in the state, Jones cleared 5-2 in the high jump for second place and threw the shot put 33-06 for third place in the meet at SBCC.

Cate’s Smith, who recently received All-CIF honors in basketball, won the 100- and 200-meter sprints in a dual meet against Carpinteria.

Kelley had a big week for the DP baseball team, leading the Chargers to the championship at the Rancho Cucamonga Cougar Classic.

The senior pitched five innings, went 4 for 5 and homered in a 14-8 victory over Rancho Cucamonga in the championship game. In an earlier tournament win, he went 3 for 4 with a double and he pitched four shutout innings, allowing one hit, no walks while striking out seven.

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!
