San Marcos Splashes Past Oxnard in Dual Meet

Boysel, Curtiss and Donahue lead Royals to season-opening victory.

San Marcos opened its swimming and diving season Thursday by squeaking out a victory over Oxnard, 87-85. Three Royals stood out in the win:

• Sam Boysel, first place, 200 Free, and second place, 100 Fly. Boysel was just off his personal best in the 200 Free and beat his previous best 100 fly time by 2 seconds.

• Lance Curtiss, first place, 50 Free and 100 Free. Curtiss was just off his best times from last year in the 50 free.

• Ian Donahue, first place, diving. Thursday was Donahue’s first meet in the diving event and he looked great on all six of his dives.

Next up for San Marcos (1-0), is a dual meet with Dos Pueblos on Thursday.

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!
