Ryder Rivadeneyra blasted 18 kills to lead the San Marco volleyball attack in a sweep at Simi Valley on Tuesday night. The scores were 25-18, 25-23, 25-15.

Clay Nerdin put away six kills and served three aces and middle Parker Bittner supplied five kills and had three blocks. Brennan Ware, Fred Ysebrands and Soren Walker each added three kills.

Solid passing made things easy for setter Tanner Stevens.

“Our guys did a great job of passing tonight, which set up a lot of good offensive opportunities," coach Kyle Benskin said. "Our hitters played a really smart game, and we did really well keeping our serves in, which gave us a lot of chances to win service points.

"Just a really great team energy tonight.”

San Marcos (6-3) plays in the Dos Pueblos Invitational on Saturday at UCSB.

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!
