Farrell is a rare five-sport athlete and an outstanding student as well.

On Monday, he was honored as Laguna Blanca’s Scholar Athlete of the Year at the Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table press luncheon at Harry’s Plaza Cafe.

Farrell runs cross country, plays soccer, tennis, beach volleyball and indoor volleyball for the Owls. He played on the soccer team that reached the CIF finals in 2015 and the indoor volleyball squad that played in the championship match last spring. 

Currently, he’s the captain of the soccer team that is ranked No. 1 in its division of the Southern Section.

Even with all the sports he plays, Farrell still achieves high marks in the classroom. He holds a 4.5 GPA carrying a course load that includes Advanced Placement psychology, economics, physics, computer science and English seminar. To fulfill his artistic side, he takes ceramics.

The son of Julie and Mason Farrell has been accepted to Harvard University.

Farrell finished at the top of his class as a junior, won the Laguna Blanca History Scholar Award and the David Elkins Award for outstanding character.

He has a great interest in computer science and has taken courses at UCSB over the summer to enhance his knowledge in the subject.

Additionally, Farrell has been honored as Santa Barbara’s Male Youth Leader of the Year. His other activities on campus include president of Youth for Direct Relief and president of the Entrepreneurship Club.

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!
