Phoebe Madsen and Madison Nicolson, who helped the Laguna Blanca girls volleyball team win a CIF-Southern Section title and reach the State Finals, joined forces on the beach and won the Girls 18s Division title at the first California Beach Volleyball Association Youth Tournament of the summer at East Beach.

Madsen and Nicolson defeated Ventura’s Kobie Jimenez and Ally Drevo of Santa Barbara in the final. Danielle Dusebout and Erin Holehouse of San Marcos placed third along with Miranda Poole of Camarillo and Emma Esparza of Ventura.

This was the first of six Tuesday youth tournament that will be held at East Beach. Next week's event is part of the CBVA Premier Youth Tour, where the winners qualify for the Cal Cup Championships in Manhattan Beach in late August.

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!
