The Santa Barbara High girls golf team rose to the ocassion against long-time Channel League champion Dos Pueblos and edged the Chargers by two strokes, 224-226, in dual match at Glen Annie Golf Course on Thursday.

Gabby Minier and  Hannah Cho of Dos Pueblos shared medalist honors by each shooting 2-over par 37.

Santa Barbara's Melia Haller was one stroke back at 38, Lizzie Goss shot a 40 and Allie Womack carded at 44.

"Melia parred six out of first seven holes," Santa Barbara coach Ryan Throop said. "Lizzie played the three par 3s in 1 under and Allie birdied both holes 2 and 6. As a team this was our lowest round on the year." 

The win leaves the Dons in first place alone at 5-0. They are 8-0 overall. Dos Pueblos is 4-1 and 8-2.

"A two-shot loss match is pretty tough for a golf team to accept," DP coach Dan Choi said. "As I told my team, it's pretty easy to think about where each one of us could have made up two shots in our round let alone two or three for a whole team. The key, however, is not to focus on the what if's but just do our best to put in the work so it won't happen the next time. Let's move on and learn from our mistakes. We are looking forward to finishing the rest of our league matches well and do our best to prepare for our rematch with SB at La Cumbre.

"Our hats off to Santa Barbara. It was a great team performance that they put on at a hard course. It was a well deserved win for them."

Throop was pleased with his team's performance.

"It took our girls' best to beat a very good team," he said.

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!
