This week’s female Athlete of the Week is Emma Fraser of the SBCC women’s water polo team. 

The freshman from Canada scored 10 goals in two wins as the State No. 3-ranked Vaqueros claimed their fourth straight Western State Conference title. Fraser scored 6 goals in a 10-6 win over Citrus in the conference tournament title game.

Parrish was recognized for his 8-goal performance in a 13-7 win over San Marcos that gave Dos Pueblos a share of the Channel League championship with a 7-1 record.

Teng delivered big time for the Chargers in CIF playoff road wins against Burbank-Burroughs and Los Alamitos. He scored four goals in an 18-11 second-round win at Burroughs and then tallied the game-winning goal just before the final buzzer for a 12-11 decision against fourth-seeded Los Alamitos.

Teng busted down pool on a counter attack after a steal by Parrish, took a long pass from Sammy Arshadi and fired a shot past the goalie to put the Chargers into the CIF semifinals for the first time since 2010.

The female honorable mention choices for the past week are Pisci Abrego (Laguna Blanca cross country), Alison Minnich (Dos Pueblos volleyball) and Taylor Beckman (Westmont volleyball).

The male athletes considered for this week's award include Michael Oldach (Westmont cross country), Wells Fowler (Laguna Blanca football), Jack Deardorff (Cate football), Adam King (Providence cross country), Frankie Gamberdella (Santa Barbara High football), Jerry Hickson (SBCC football).

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!
