Sam Meister, Ben Roach Pace Santa Barbara Past Channel Islands in 4 Sets

Sam Meister and Ben Roach combined for 33 kills, and Santa Barbara High overcame a first-set loss and defeated Channel Islands in four sets in a non-league boys volleyball match on Thursday night at J.R. Richards Gym.

The scores were 19-25, 25-12, 25-20, 25-16.

Meister, a freshman, led the Dons with 17 kills and two service aces, while Roach had 16 kills and four aces. Aiden Douglas played a solid match and provided 10 kills and two aces. Middle Parker Mees had dive kills.

"Channel Islands is a scrappy team that refuses to let any balls drop," Santa Barbara coach Chad Arneson said. It took the Dons a while to get going in the first set, but we found a way to get into a good rhythm in games 2, 3 and 4."

Santa Barbara setter Dane Westwick had 48 assists and libero Matt Suh led the defense with 12 digs. 

The Dons (12-6) return to Channel League play next Tuesday with a showdown at Dos Pueblos.

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!
