First-Set Comeback Sparks SBCC to Sweep of Miramar

SBCC erased a 13-4 first-set deficit on Friday afternoon and went on to sweep San Diego Miramar 3-0 in its first men’s volleyball road match. The scores were identical – 25-22, 25-22, 25-22.

Kyle Skinner, a 6-4 sophomore from Santa Barbara High, led the Vaqueros (2-0) with nine kills. Dos Pueblos alum Cameron Fry had seven kills, four blocks and hit .545. Adam Shields, a 6-4 middle blocker from DP, added eight kills and just one error for a .625 hitting percentage.

Sophomore setter Adam Simonetti had 28 assists and two aces. The Vaqueros had five aces and 16 service errors.

“It was another great win by the guys in a true team effort,” said second-year coach Jon Newton. “We went down in the first set 11-3 and 13-4, tied it up at 16 and then took the lead 17-16.

“The key to winning the match was staying disciplined and playing one point at a time. I am proud of the way the guys composed themselves to get out of a large deficit in the first set and finish out each game strong.”

The Vaqueros will take on the University of St. Katherine on Saturday at 3:40 p.m. The game will be played at the Southern Cal Volleyball Club in San Marcos, Calif.

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!
