The Santa Barbara Premier Water Polo Club's 14U boys A team claimed the bronze medal in the gold division at the 10th annual Kap7 International Tournament last weekend in Orange County.

Santa Barbara Premier defeated San Jose Almaden A, 14-7, for the medal.

In other action, the 14U B boys team claimed fifth in the Silver Division, the 16U Boys came in 10th in the Platinum Division and the Girls 14U team finished 10th in Platinum Division.

The Kap7 International draws nearly 450 teams.

“This tournament was essential to all athletes interested in advancing their level of play,” Premier club director Ryan McMillen said. “It is vital for all our teams' growth this early in our season to play against the nation’s most powerful clubs.

“It is also important for athletes who are interested in being exposed to the nation’s collegiate coaches, most of whom have made it known to our athletes and staff that they would be at Kap7 International,” he added. “We are proud to have sent almost 80 athletes to represent our region.”

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!
