The USC-bound Hauschild was a force at both ends of the pool for the Royals, who won the league title all four years she played on the varsity team.

Three San Marcos players earned first-team all-league honors. They are senior and Michigan signee Brittany Prentice and juniors Piper Smith and Sophie Trumbull.

Dos Pueblos was represented by three underclassmen: junior Ryann Neushul and sophomores Abbi Hill and Sophie Leggett. 

Santa Barbara senior and Princeton-bound Kai McGeoy and junior Grace Raisin also earned first-team honors.

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!
