Santa Barbara Girls Seeded No. 1 for Delayed Gold Coast Classic

Channel League girls basketball rivals Santa Barbara High and Buena are the top seeds in their respective brackets of the annual Gold Coast Classic this week.

Santa Barbara tops the eight-team bracket at San Marcos while the Bulldogs are the No. 1 team among the eight playing at Rio Mesa in Oxnard. The bracket winners will meet for the championship on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at San Marcos.

The first round of games were cancelled Wednesday because of the Thomas Fire in Ventura County. Tournament directors hope to start the competition on Thursday.


The San Marcos bracket includes the Dons, Santa Ynez, Foothill Tech, Oxnard, St. Bonaventure, Cabrillo, San Marcos and Righetti.

At Rio Mesa,  there’s Buena, Simi Valley, Rio Mesa, West Ranch, Grace Brethren, Temecula Valley Bakersfield-Centennial and Oxnard-Pacifica.

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!
