SBCC Falls to No. 1 Irvine Valley in Four Sets

SBCC came out on fire on Friday night, dominating No. 1 Irvine Valley in the first set 25-13 before the Lasers came alive to post a 3-1 men’s volleyball victory at the Sports Pavilion. The scores were 13-25, 25-20, 25-9, 25-20.

The 10th-ranked Vaqueros (3-8) hit .235 in the first set and .281 in the second with 11 kills and two errors. Patrick Furlong led the Lasers (8-1) with 19 kills and a .361 hitting percentage.

Sean Reynaert topped the Vaqueros with 10 kills but also had seven hitting errors. Jarrett Futch added seven kills and a .462 hitting percentage with three blocks. Jackson McDonough had seven kills and a team-high 10 digs. Kealakahi Spain produced nine digs while setter Jonathan Baldwin had 29 assists, five digs and two solo blocks.

“We played great in the first set,” said SBCC coach Jon Newton. “They’re ranked No. 1 in the state for a reason. Defensively, they’re really good and they have a lot of offensive weapons. The biggest thing we’ll take away from this is after losing the third set pretty badly, we came back, battled and showed a lot of fight. It got close at the end but we just had trouble passing tonight.”

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!
