Santa Barbara’s Greg Maier teamed with John Kessenich of Ann Arbor, Mich., and won the California Beach Volleyball Association Santa Barbara Men’s “A” Tournament at East Beach recently.

Maier-Kessenich defeated the local duo of Alex McGeever and Morgan Youngs in the final. The winners earned their “AA” ratings on the beach.

In the Women’s “A” Tournament held on the same day, Lindsey Ruddins of Laguna Niguel and Shauna Klein of Isla Vista took first place and won their “AA” ranking. They defeated the Santa Barbara team of Kira Grebel and Jenna Suttmeier.

The next CBVA doubles competition in Santa Barbara is the Bud Light Santa Barbara Open for men and women on July 2-3 in front of the Cabrillo Bath House. The tournaments draw the top local talent and several college and professional players.

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!
