SBCC Water Polo Rolls Past L.A. Valley

SBCC rolled to an 11-1 halftime lead on Wednesday on the way to a 14-5 women’s water polo victory at L.A. Valley.

The Vaqueros, ranked No. 2 in California, improved to 17-2 and 4-0 in the WSC. It was the 20th straight conference win for the three-time defending champs, who are 30-2 all-time in four WSC seasons.

Meagan Mckillican and Tori Bray scored three goals each. Mckillican, a freshman center from Foothill Tech in Ventura, tallied three in the opening period as the Vaqueros jumped out to a 6-1 advantage. Kemi Dijkstra had three assists.

Ten SBCC players scored a goal and all 16 got into the game. Goalie Nicole Poulos played the first half and got the win, improving to 9-2. She allowed just one goal with two saves and an assist.

“Having 10 players score in a game is an amazing accomplishment,” said coach Chuckie Roth. “Erika Muehring played a phenomenal game and Meagan Mckillican had some nice instrumental goals.”

The Vaqueros will play four games in the Battle at the Beach, hosted by Long Beach City College on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 20-21.

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!
