The Santa Barbara High Dons, who lost only one match all season, took the All-Channel League championship last week in girls beach volleyball.

The team was led by undefeated Cal Poly-bound players Linnea Skinner and Erika Foreman.

Playing the second line were the Randolph sisters, Devan and Hayden, followed by Talia Medel and Avalon Gagnon in the third line.

The Randolph sisters pulled off a close third-game win against Arroyo Grande to sweep the match.

Other players for the Dons included Georgia Brace, Siena Pomerantz, Rosie Campbell, Skyler Maines, Reese Kelley and Tiffany Medel.

The team was coached by incoming indoor varsity coach Ariana Garner, and Anthony Medel as assistant coach.

“The girls really embraced the techniques and system that Anthony and I teach. They were quick learners, which is why our top pairs were so successful. We are very proud of how hard all the girls worked this season,” Garner said.  

Only in its fourth year as a high school club-level sport, the league consists of 13 schools that have organized under the leadership of Sam Calisto to form a competitive field.

"Its a real pleasure to watch the girls compete at such a high level," Calisto said. ”We hope to be a model for CIF on how to run a successful high school beach volleyball season.”

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!
