Santa Barbara Girls Win Tune-Up Before Bill Barnett Holiday Cup

Santa Barbara High's girls water polo team tuned up for this weekend's Bill Barnett Holiday Cup at Newport Harbor by defeating Beckman, 8-2, in a non-league game on Thursday in Orange County.

Juju Martinez Do Amaral led the Dons with four goals and five steals. Rachel Whitney had three steals to go with one goal.

Goalie Faith Tedesco made eight saves.

The Dons will open the Bill Barnett Holiday Cup against host Newport Harbor on Friday.

The tournament this week was named in honor of the legendary Newport Harbor water polo coach who passed away on Monday at the age of 76. Barnett, who was retired, coached Newport Harbor to 15 CIF-SS titles -- 10 for the boys and five for the girls.

He is considered the "godfather" of water polo in Orange County.

Barnett also coached the U.S. men's Olympic team in 1988 and 1992, winning a silver medal in ’88.

The Newport Harbor girls team is coached by former UCSB standout Ross Sinclair.

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!
