SBCC Coasts Past Antelope Valley in Straight Sets Win

Adam Simonetti pitches in 27 assists

Santa Barbara City College men's volleyball played it tight on Saturday, gutting out a straight-sets victory against Antelope Valley at home on Friday.

A 25-15 first set loss set the Vaqueros back and the team gave away the next two, 25-21 and 25-19.

Blake Lockhard and Haward Gomes each had nine kills in a low-error contest for both sides. Setter Adam Simonetti contributed 27 assists to the effort. Gomes picked up two blocks, as did Scott Sanborn.

"We went out and played steady volleyball by limiting our errors," Vaqueros coach Jon Newton said after the game. 

"Again it was another full team effort to win this match with everyone getting into the game. It's nice to have a group of guys where we can put an entire new line up in and not skip a beat."

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!
