Morrison led the San Marcos boys water polo team to a 4-1 record and a fifth-place finish at the 24-team Santa Barbara Invitational over the weekend.  The senior, who recently committed to UCSB, scored 19 goals in the Royals’ five matches. Their only loss was a 10-9 decision against top seed and eventual champion Orange Lutheran.

Triplett had a big week for the Dos Pueblos girls tennis team. The freshman won all three of her singles sets in a victory over crosstown rival and defending Channel League champion San Marcos, including a 6-4 decision over last year’s singles champion Yuka Perera. Triplett also won two sets in a tight match against Calabasas.

Roberts had a big night for the Dos Pueblos football team in a 37-0 win over Cabrillo two weeks ago. The senior quarterback passed for 362 yards and 4 touchdowns and ran for a score.

Bickett led the Laguna Blanca girls volleyball team to an unbeaten record and the gold division championship at the Owls’ tournament. The junior setter/outside hitter was named the MVP. She later helped Laguna Blanca sweep Santa Barbara High in a non-league match.

The athletes who were the honorable mention choices this week include Matt Lariviere (Westmont soccer), Perry Martin (SBCC football), Manny Nwosu (SBCC football), Jeremiah Nicholson (Santa Barbara High football), John Harris (Bishop Diego football), Marcellous Gossett (Dos Pueblos football), Gabby Minier (Dos Pueblos girls golf), Christina Rice (Dos Pueblos cross country), Lindsay Ruddins (UCSB volleyball), Brooke Lillywhite (Westmont women’s soccer).

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!
