Santa Barbara Girls Tennis Advances to 2nd Round of CIF Playoffs

Santa Barbara High's girls tennis team is playing its best tennis at the right time of the year.

The Dons knocked off Simi Valley, 10-8, on the road in a CIF-Southern Section Division 2 first-round match on Wednesday. They won a wild-card match on Tuesday.

"We played our best tennis of the season today, which was great to see," said Santa Barbara coach Greg Tebbe.

Simi Valley was the champion of the Coastal Canyon League and defeated the Dons during the regular season.

Santa Barbara advances to a second-round match at home against either Palm Desert or Orange Lutheran on Friday.

Laura Dragone swept her three singles matches, Claire Stotts took two sets and Natalie Brewer "won a critical match playing at No. 3 singles," said Tebbe.

The Dons won four doubles matches to secure the victory.

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!
