Gomersall led the Dons to a pair of victories, which gave them a share of the Channel League title with San Marcos. The junior shot a low round of 73 in windy conditions in a win over Dos Pueblos at Glenn Annie Golf Club and followed with a 1-under 70 at La Cumbre County Club to share medalist honors with teammate Isaac Stone in Santa Barbara’s triumph over Buena. 

Gomersall was unable to attend Monday’s luncheon because he was playing in the league individual tournament at Soule Park in Ojai.

Herrera racked up loads of points to lead the Westmont women’s track & field team to the Golden State Athletic Conference title. The junior won the 100 meters, 200 meters, 110 hurdles and long jump, took fifth in the triple jump and ran on the winning 4x100 relay team.

The honorable mention choices for the awards include Tim Piozet (Santa Barbara High baseball), Antonio Andrade (Santa Barbara High baseball), Ben Cable (Dos Pueblos swimming), Travis Pierce (Bishop Diego baseball), Shannon Trumbull (UCSB track), Cassandra Barkhorn (Dos Pueblos swimming) and FayAnn Wooten-Raya (Dos Pueblos lacrosse).

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!
