Santa Barbara Goes 2-4 at Best of the West Tournament

An undermanned Santa Barbara High volleyball squad went 2-4 over the weekend at the Best of the West Tournament in San Diego.

The Dons defeated Moanalua of Hawaii on Friday night and topped Cathedral Catholic of San Diego on Saturday. Their losses came against Bellarmine Prep of San Jose and Newport Harbor on Friday and Newbury Park and Otay Ranch on Saturday.

Santa Barbara coach Chad Arneson said the team was missing several players on Saturday because of SAT testing.

"It was a great experience to play in this tournament and see what we need to work on as a group," he said. "Playing in tough competition will prepare us for Channel League."

Arneson expects to have his full squad together this week. Ben Roach will rejoin the team after leading Santa Barbara's soccer team to a CIF-SS championship and to the regional semifinals.

"He will bring balance to our offense and defense," said Arneson.

The coach cited the tournament play of outside hitters Riley Roach and Will Rottman and libero Matt Suh.

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!
