Laguna Blanca, Santa Ynez One Win From Local CIF Volleyball Final

It's a busy week of CIF-Southern Section playoff action for area teams.

Here's a rundown of what's going on.

The action starts Tuesday with two Division 6 girls volleyball semifinals. Top-seeded Laguna Blanca hosts Riverside-Woodcrest Christian at 6 p.m., while No. 2 Santa is home against fourth-seed Crossroads.  If the local teams prevail, there's a possibility the CIF final would be held in the area on Saturday rather than at Cerritos College in Norwalk.

Also on Tuesday, Carpinteria and Santa Ynez begin the first round of the Division 5 boys water polo playoffs. Santa Ynez hosts California High while Carpinteria travels to Riverside to face J.W. North. The second round is Thursday and the quarterfinals on Saturday.

The Division 1 and 2 water polo playoffs start on Wednesday. Santa Barbara is home against Mater Dei at 4 p.m., and San Marcos plays at fourth-seeded Orange Lutheran in Division 1. Dos Pueblos heads to Glendale to face Hoover in Division 2. Quarterfinal games will be played on Saturday.

In football, Friday night first-round games have Dos Pueblos hosting Mission Prep of San Luis Obispo in Division 10, Santa Barbara playing at Agoura in Division 9 and Carpinteria taking on St. Genevieve at Crespi High in Encino. Bishop Diego plays its Division 5 opener against Salesian on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at SBCC's La Playa Stadium.

In the North County, No. 2 seed Lompoc hosts Carter in Division 4 and St. Joseph is home against Troy in Division 5.

On Saturday, the Channel League-champion San Marcos girls cross country team and runner-up boys squad join the Dos Pueblos girls team and boys individual champion Hunter Clark at CIF Prelims in Riverside.

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!
