San Marcos Girls Lose Opener by Two Points

The San Marcos girls basketball team couldn't take advantage of 35 Orcutt Academy turnovers and dropped a 49-47 decision in the season opener for both teams on Tuesday night.

The Royals took 30 more shots than Orcutt but made only 23 percent from the floor.

"We hustled, caused turnovers, we played hard, but we have to find a way to put the ball in the basket," said assistant coach Brian Gibson.

Milan McGary scored 15 points to lead San Marcos and sophomore Alex Guadagno tallied 10 points in her varsity debut.

Summer Vasquez of Orcutt Academy led all scorers with 23 points.

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!
