San Marcos Water Polo Edged by Ventura in Channel League Opener

San Marcos lost a 12-11 nail-biter against Ventura in a Channel League boys water polo opener on Wednesday at the Royals' pool.

The teams went back and forth throughout. Ventura took a 10-9 lead after three periods and held on for the win.

"I thought we played pretty well and just ran out of gas a little bit at the end," said San Marcos Jeff Ashton. "Sam Fuller had a great game scoring 5 goals, but also spent a considerable amount of time matching up with their best player."

Ashton also praised the play of Kyle Voulgaris. "He did a really nice job scoring three goal out of center."

Trevor Ricci had two goals and James Oriskovich added one. Goalie Jack Phreaner made nine saves.

San Marcos falls to 2-5 and 0-1 in league.

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!
