Emma Fraser Leads SBCC Water Polo to Pair of Wins

Emma Fraser racked up five goals, four steals and three assists on Friday morning, sparking No. 2 SBCC to a 13-6 comeback win at Cypress  in the Long Beach City College Battle at the Beach women’s water polo tournament.

The Vaqueros (19-2) trailed 4-1 after one quarter, then outscored the Chargers 12-2 the rest of the way. They won the second half 9-1.

Kemi Dijkstra added three goals, Halie Johnson had two goals and four drawn ejections and Tori Bray had a goal and four steals.

In the second game, the Vaqueros used a 5-1 second-quarter surge to build an 8-4 halftime lead on the way to a 12-9 win over WSC rival and No. 6-ranked Citrus. Fraser had three goals and three assists while Johnson contributed three goals and three steals. Meagan Mckillican also had a hat trick.

Goalie Nicole Poulos (11-2) tied her season high with 11 saves.

Santa Barbara won its four-team pool with a 2-0 record in the 24-team tourney. The Vaqueros are playing in the elite 16-team division.

They’ll take on No. 3 Orange Coast (20-3) for the third time this year on Saturday at Cerritos College in Norwalk, starting at 11:30 a.m. The Vaqueros won the first two meetings 13-6 and 13-9.

If SBCC beats the Pirates, it will probably face No. 1 Riverside for the tourney title at 4:10 p.m.

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!
