Feshbach opened her senior year by taking sixth place in the pentathlon at the National Scholastic Athletics Association New Balance U.S. Indoor Track and Field Championships in New York over the weekend.

Competing against multi-event athletes from all over the county, the Yale-bound Feshbach scored 3,401 points in the five events, missing fifth place by one point. Her best finish was a third place in the long jump at 17-10.25. She threw a lifetime best of 32-9.50 in the shot put.

Gowdy kicked off the Santa Barbara High baseball season by throwing a one-hit, 2-0 shutout against Righetti. The UCLA signee struck out 10 in the opening-day victory.

The athletes named honorable mention for the awards include Jenny Nnoli (San Marcos track), Krissy Karr (Westmont basketball), Amber Melgoza (Santa Barbara High girls basketball), Nick Busch (Santa Barbara boys basketball), Eli Wopat (Dos Pueblos volleyball), Blake Katsev (San Marcos baseball) and Gio Macias (Dos Pueblos baseball).

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!
