Hotchkiss won three individual titles and was part of two winning relays at the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Swimming Championships.

The men's team senior captain lowered his school record in the 1650 free style and won the championship in 15:00.49. He also improved his record in winning the 200 free in 1:34.53 and captured the 500 free in a UCSB record time of 4:14.39.

The relay wins came in the 400 free (2:54.11) and the 800 free in a school-record time of 6:21.23, which bettered the competition by six seconds.

Brown was a double-double machine for the Westmont women's basketball team in wins over San Diego Christian and Hope International. The freshman center had 10 points and 11 rebounds against San Diego Christian and scored 16 points and grabbed 15 rebounds against Hope.

The two victories clinched second place in the Golden State Athletic Conference standings and earned the Warriors a first-round bye in this week's conference tournament at Menlo College.

The honorable mention choices for this week's awards include Mason Boelter (Dos Pueblos baseball), Nico Martinez (Dos Pueblos baseball), Hamilton Finefrock (Bishop Diego baseball) and Brooke Essig (Dos Pueblos girls lacrosse).

Also recognized at the luncheon were the Athletes of the Week from two weeks ago — Carpinteria High boys basketball player Noah Nuño and Danae Miller of the UCSB women's basketball team — and Dos Pueblos wrestler Kade Uyesaka from three weeks ago.

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!
