SBCC Rolls to Ninth Straight Win

SBCC rolled past West L.A. 25-16, 25-19, 25-19 on Friday night for its ninth straight women’s volleyball win and ninth sweep of the season.

The Vaqueros, ranked third in the state with an 11-1 record, advanced to the semifinals of the seventh annual LA Pierce Brahma Invitational where they’ll meet San Diego Mesa or Gavilan on Saturday at 1:30 p.m.

Carolyn Andrulis and Shannon Friend led the Vaqueros with eight kills apiece. Friend delivered five ace serves and Kaylene Ureno had three. Isabella Thompson produced seven kills, a sparkling .667 hitting percentage, and three blocks.

Setter Kiana Pisula had 23 assists and seven digs.

Santa Barbara is 27-1 in sets during its nine-match win streak, which includes a 3-1 win over top-ranked Grossmont.

“We had great middle production by Isabella,” said assistant coach Lisa Gera. “Our head coach Ed Gover has been doing a great job of speeding up our middle attack and it’s really starting to show in matches.

“We’ll have two very competitive matches on Saturday and I’m excited to see our players rise to the challenge.”

If the Vaqueros win on Saturday, they’ll advance to the 6:30 p.m. final against No. 2 L.A. Pierce or Moorpark.

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!
