Elizabeth Sheffield Sparks UCSB at Fullerton

Led by Lindsey Ruddins and Elizabeth Sheffield, UCSB (12-8, 3-4) downed Cal  State Fullerton (6-14, 1-5) at Titan Gym in four sets on Saturday night. The scores were 26-24, 21-25, 25-19, 25-20.

Ruddins led the Gauchos with 12 kills, while Sheffield had the most impact offensively with a season-high 16 total points with her 11 kills, three aces, and two block assists. The senior has now reached double figures in points for the second match in a row and for the third time in four contests.

On the defensive side of the court, Emilia Petrachi finished with a season-high 29 digs (7.3 per set), as she played a pivotal role in holding the Titans to a pair of sub- .100 hitting performances in the third and fourth sets. Petrachi now has five 20-plus dig outings this year, including her second in a row.

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!
