Santa Barbara Steps Up Play at Dave Mohs Tournament, Goes 2-2

Santa Barbara High turned the corner in girls volleyball over the weekend at the Dave Mohs Tournament in Orange County.

The Dons beat Yorba Linda to win their pool and qualify for the Gold Bracket and finished the tournament with a 2-2 record (defeated Sunny Hills and fell to Laguna Hills). They lost to St. Margaret's in the playoffs. 

"Our girls are playing really well as a group," said a pleased Dons coach Chad Arneson. "We're starting to find our groove."

Erika Foreman collected 28 kills and Chloe Mauceri  had 24 to lead the attack from the outside. Georgia Brace played well in the middle and Cassandra Gordon had "a coming out party" as a middle hitter/blocker, said Arneson. Gordon is a star basketball player.

He praised the setting of Linnea Skinner and Ellie Chenoweth and the defensive play of Siena Pomerantz and Izzy Mallet.

"Everyone stepped up and learned to play as a team," said Arneson.

The Dons open Channel League play on Thursday at defending champion Ventura.

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!
