SBCC Volleyball Opens State Playoffs at Orange Coast

SBCC was seeded No. 7 for the CCCAA State men’s volleyball tournament and will travel to No. 2 Orange Coast on Friday for a quarterfinal match at 6 p.m.

The Vaqueros went 12-5 and finished second in the WSC North at 4-2. This is their first trip to the playoffs in seven years. Orange Coast (18-2) is the defending state champion and has won 13 straight matches.

SBCC’s Kyle Skinner and Adam Simonetti have been named to the first-team All-WSC men’s volleyball squad.

Skinner, a 6-4 sophomore outside hitter from Santa Barbara High, finished second in the conference with 198 kills. Simonetti, a 6-4 sophomore setter from Seal Beach, was second in assists, averaging 9.14 per set.

Blake Lockhart and Misaki Cramer were second-team choices. Cameron Fry and Haward Gomes made honorable mention.

Bernardo Roese, the setter for WSC North champion L.A. Pierce, was the Player of the Year.

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!
