SBCC Volleyball Tops No. 3 Fullerton in Four Sets

Sophomore outside hitter Haward Gomes had 14 kills and Cameron Fry blocked eight balls on Wednesday night as No. 6 SBCC upset No. 3 Fullerton 3-1. The scores were 25-19, 27-29, 25-20, 25-19.

The Vaqueros won their third straight road match to improve to 4-0. Fullerton is 1-1.

“This is a great way to end a long string of road matches, beating the No. 3 ranked team in the state on their home court,” said SBCC coach Jon Newton. “This team works well under pressure. We started the first set down 6-0 and forced Fullerton to call the first time-out when we went up 8-6. It's nice to have a team that can stay composed and win matches.”

Gomes drilled 14 kills and hit .375. Blake Lockhart added 11 kills, six digs and four blocks. Misaki Cramer had 15 digs and Adam Simonetti handed out 35 assists.

The Vaqueros will host the University of St. Katherine, a four-year National Christian College Athletic Association school, on Friday, Feb. 16 at 6 p.m. SBCC beat the Firebirds 3-1 last Saturday.

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!
