Laguna Blanca Outlasts Rio Mesa in Five Sets

Three Laguna Blanca hitters went for double figures in kills, and setter Kyle Aitcheson had 50 assists in a five-set season-opening win at Rio Mesa. The scores were 25-23, 25-21, 20-25, 25-27, 15-13.

Finn Walker and Andrew Tolles each recorded double-doubles. Walkher had 15 kills and 15 digs to go with three aces; Tolles had 12 kills, a team-high 27 digs and three aces, and Sam Stegall had 14 kills.

Aitcheson served four aces and had 11 digs.

"We have great senior leadership by our three seniors (Sam, Andrew and Kyle) who are leading by example and helping pave the way for our younger players," assistant coach Kat Niksto said. "Finn, Andrew and Sam were solid offensively on the pins, and freshman Libero Jack Shiebler stepped up and made some solid serve receive passes at critical times."

Laguna Blanca hosts Cate on Thursday.

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!
