Santa Barbara Opens League With Win at Buena

Santa Barbara High bounced back from a first-set loss and defeated Buena in its Channel League girls volleyball opener on Friday at Buena. The scores 19-25, 25-18, 25-20, 25-21.

Linnea Skinner led a balanced attack with 13 kills. Chloe Mauceri added 9 kills and Erika Foreman had 8.

Coach John Gannon lauded the defense and passing of Megan Seabury. "She provided a steady foundation for our solid play in the second, third and fourth sets," he said. "Also, the net play of Sophie Breathed provided key points and key moments. Her four kills and four huge blocks set a solid tone for the Dons."

Setters Ellie Chenoweth and Bella Gniadek ran the offense "and allowed out hitters to terminate at will," Gannon  said.

The Dons are home Tuesday against San Marcos.

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!
