Santa Barbara Beats Royal in 4 Sets in Volleyball Season Opener

After splitting the first two sets in its season opener, the Santa Barbara High boys volleyball team found its groove and took down Royal in four sets (25-10, 27-25, 25-17, 25-14) on Wednesday night in Simi Valley.

The Dons started well, with Andrew Douglas, Riley Roach and Sam Meister setting the tone.

Stanford-bound Will Rottman and Aiden Douglas, who joined the team from basketball practice and didn't get a chance to warm up, were inserted into the game in the second set.

After a slow start, Rottman got going and finished the match with a team-high 21 kills. Meistwr had 15 kills and Henry Haber dished out 35 assists in his setting debut. Libero Matt Suh picked up 15 digs and served four aces.

Coach Chad Arneson praised the overall play of Roach.

"I was very impressed with Riley Roach’s overall game tonight," he said. "He played solid in all facets of the game: hitting passing and blocking."

The Dons are back in action Thursday at home against Oxnard.

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!
