SBCC Rebounds From First-Set Loss, Beats Golden West

Taylor McCluskey had 14 kills, 10 digs and three aces on Wednesday night, leading SBCC to a 3-1 men’s volleyball win over Golden West in the Sports Pavilion. The scores were 23-25, 25-22, 29-27, 25-22.

Middle blocker Robert Gulvin added 10 kills with a .438 hitting percentage and three blocks in the third straight win for the Vaqueros (4-2). Jackson Wopat had 10 kills and four blocks. Setter Kyle Smiley contributed 42 assists, 10 digs, three kills and three aces.

“It felt like we served better tonight and when our serves were in, we did a great job of float serving and making it tough for them to serve-receive,” said coach Matt Jones. “That was the turning point – the serving would get us back in the game until we found our offensive rhythm.

 “We’re so slow starting sets right now, we keep playing from behind and that’s a big area we need to improve on.”

 Andrew Tenbrink, a 6-4 sophomore, led the Rustlers (5-2) with 22 kills and a .636 hitting percentage. Chace Palumbo added 11 kills.
 Santa Barbara hit .202 for the match with nine aces and 10 service errors.

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!
