SBCC Volleyball Falls Short in Five-Set Match at Moorpark

Calvin Sanborn and Chayton Clark combined for 34 kills on Wednesday night but No. 5 SBCC dropped a tough 3-2 decision at Moorpark in a WSC men’s volleyball opener. The scores were 22-25, 25-21, 25-22, 18-25, 18-16.

The Vaqueros fell to 3-2 and the Raiders, also ranked No. 5 in the state, improved to 5-1.

Sanborn led the Vaqueros with 18 kills and 12 digs. Clark added 16 kills and nine digs while Blake Lockhart, a 6-7 right-side hitter from Santa Ynez, recorded 12 kills and 15 digs.

Sanborn is No. 1 in the state in kills per set (4.43) and No. 7 in kill percentage (.318). 

“It was a good high-level match against a good team,” said SBCC coach Jon Newton. “This was our first conference match and I expect a lot of our games to be like this – good high-intensity volleyball.”

The Vaqueros hit .242 for the match and had 15 aces and 20 service errors.

Austin Lind, a 6-9 middle blocker from Santa Barbara High, notched six kills and a .714 hitting percentage. Justin Eitner had a team-high 18 digs and six aces.

Freshman setter Aaron Letvin dished out 45 assists and served five aces.

The Vaqueros will play five of the next six at home, starting Friday when Santa Monica comes to the Sports Pavilion at 6 p.m

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!
