Sports: A Noozhawk Partnership with Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table, The Lab, and American Riviera Bank

San Marcos Beats Santa Barbara, Closes In on Title Repeat

San Marcos girls tennis moved within a win of making program history by defeating Santa Barbara, 14-4, in a Channel League match on Thursday.

The Royals (6-1 in league) are in position to capture a second straight league title for the first time. They play winless Buena in next week's league finale. San Marcos is tied for first place with Dos Pueblos.

The Royals won 8 of 9 singles matches, led by Yuka Perera and Kelly Coulson.  In  doubles, they took 6 of 9 matches.

The Royals (10-4 overall) play undefeated Cate at home on Friday.

Santa Barbara got a win in singles from Claire Stotts. The doubles team of Brooke Morison and Eva Kershner took down San Marcos' Carly McDaniel and Maura Mannix, 6-1, in the second set played.

"They were completely focused on beating them today," said Santa Barbara coach Sally Becker. "That was a great win for the Dons."

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!
