San Marcos Girls Rout Santa Maria, Open Season 2-0

The San Marcos girls basketball team continued their hot start to the season with a 59-27 home victory over Santa Maria on Saturday. The Royals begin the year with a 2-0 record for the first time since 2009.

Milan McGary led the way for the Royals, scoring 26 points on 9-of-16 shooting. She also notched six rebounds and three assists. Sopohomore Ashley Day contributed with 11 points and Leticia Romero added 11 rebounds.

"Once we stopped turning the ball over we were able to get into a good rhythm," explained San Marcos head coach Chris Hantgin. "Milan's scoring helped to get others involved. She was really effective getting inside the paint today. We still need to improve and take better care of the ball but we are moving in a good direction."

San Marcos travels south to take on Santa Paula in the Fillmore Tournament on Wednesday.

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!
