Ninness beat her own school record in the 100 backstroke and won the event at the Mt. SAC Meet of Champions. She clocked 56.96, breaking the previous mark of 58.39 she set as a freshman in 2015. Ninness also swam on a first-place 400 free relay, helping San Marcos capture the girls team title and the meet’s sweepstakes championship with the boys team.

Baldwin scored a huge upset in DP’s Channel League dual match with San Marcos, handing three-time league champion Kento Perera his first league loss in four years. Baldwin won the set between the No. 1 players in a tiebreaker (8-5), propelling the Chargers to a 10-8 team victory.

The honorable mention choices for the award included Daniel Burquez (Carpinteria track), Linus Holmberg (Santa Barbara High baseball), Matthew Hempy (San Marcos track & field), Nova Sinskul (Dos Pueblos softball) and Gina Jacobsen (SBCC diving).

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!
