This week, Santa Barbara’s “Gold” Varsity Club Roller Hockey team earned its first-ever state title in dramatic fashion with a 3-1 victory over Fountain Valley.

It was the first time any team from the Central Coast High School Hockey League has earned the honor.

Senior Soren Wilde scored one goal and junior Nolan Cope came up with two goals. Senior Colette Brown played rugged defense before suffering a broken wrist in the first period. Goalie Kevin Hough helped carry the team to a 5-0-1 record in the tournament.

The California High School Roller Hockey State Cup Championship tournament draws the top CIF and club teams from each of the six leagues, consisting of 107 teams in the state.

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!
