SBCC Hosts Southern California Tennis Regional

Top women will compete at Pershing Park, Municipal Courts through Saturday.

The best of the best in community college women’s tennis will descend on SBCC’s courts Thursday through Saturday for the Southern California Regional. The event, which gets under way at 9 a.m. Thursday, will be held at Pershing Park and the Municipal Courts.

The draw will be approximately 64 players for both singles and doubles. The finals will take place Saturday at Pershing, with singles starting at 1 p.m. All quarterfinalists in singles and doubles will advance to the state tournament May 8-10 at El Dorado Tennis Center in Long Beach.

The seedings will probably follow the results from last week’s 108th Ojai Tournament, according to SBCC coach Louella Parsons. Brazilian Lorena Zago of College of the Desert won the singles title, beating Grossmont’s Vanesa Reibstein, 6-3, 6-2. In doubles, Reibstein and Brianna McClintock prevailed with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Brittany Bass and Brittnie Furuvald of Orange Coast.

SBCC‘s Brittany Newsom is entered in both singles and doubles after reaching the quarterfinals of the WSC Championships and last week’s prestigious Ojai event. She’ll compete with Heather Hawke in doubles.

The Vaqueros men will be represented by Elliot Markowitz and Cameron DeArgon in the Southern Cal Regional, which starts Thursday in Riverside.

Dave Loveton is Santa Barbara City College‘s sports information specialist.

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!
