Santa Barbara Volleyball Advances to Gold Division at Best of West Tournament

Santa Barbara High pulled out a pair of three-set victories and advanced to the Gold Division at the Best of the West boys volleyball tournament in San Diego on Friday.

The Dons beat Westlake, 23-25-25-14, 25-12, and followed up with a 25-22, 18-25, 15-12 win against Corona del Mar. They lost their first match of the day to Harker School, 25-21, 25-23.

"The boys got better in each match and they're learning how to play as a team," said coach Chad Arneson, who had just nine players available because of SAT testing.

Peter Tebbe ran the offense and "did a great job setting and finding the right hitters," Arneson said.

Stanford-bound Will Rottman led the attack with 42 kills in three matches and Sam Meister had 16 kills on the day.

Arneson said the tough serving and steady passing of Mat Suh was a key factor in the Dons advancing. He also credited the play of Andrew Douglas at the net and the defense and setting of junior Caden Westwick.

The Dons open the Gold Division against Santa Margarita.

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!
