The 16-under girls team of the Santa Barbara Premier Water Polo Club opened its tournament season with a title at the Turbo Cup in Irvine. 

The club's 14U girls squad took a silver medal in its Gold Division championship game, falling to Vanguard Aquatic, 4-3.

"We are proud to debut our 16U squad at Turbo Cup last weekend," said SB Premier head girls coach Laura Lopez.  “And while the results of this tournament for us were fruitful, our true focus is not the outcome but the process, and what our athletes need to focus on today that gives them the best chance of success in the future.”

The SB Premier Girls will travel to Irvine again for the  Kap7 Cup in mid-April.

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!
