Sheehy’s goal scoring sparked SBCC to its first community college State Final Four in program history. In the regional playoffs, she scored the first goal in a 3-1 win at sixth-ranked Ventura and delivered the game winner in a 1-0 decision at No. 2 Santiago Canyon. The freshman has 10 goals on the year.

The honorable mention choices for the awards include Aysia Shellmire (Westmont women’s basketball), Erica Schroeder (San Marcos cross country), Sam Bentz (Westmont basketball), Sean Harman (Westmont basketball), Morgan Peus (Santa Barbara High basketball).

Athlete of the Week honors for performances before the Thanksgiving holiday also were recognized at Monday’s press luncheon. The awards went to SBCC basketball player Robert Hutchins and SBCC golfer Carolin Chang.

Chang won her second straight individual title at the Community College State Golf Championships in Morro Bay.

Hutchins averaged 23 points in three games at the Hancock Tournament. He had a career-high 31 in a semifinal win over the host Bulldogs.

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!
