SBCC Water Polo Romps to 12th Straight Win

SBCC built an 8-3 halftime lead on Friday afternoon on the way to a 9-4 women’s water polo victory over Golden West in a battle of undefeated teams at the Cuesta Rabobank Tournament.

The Vaqueros (12-0) took on Cuesta in a WSC match earlier in the day in San Luis Obispo and won the first quarter 6-0 en route to an 11-7 triumph. Santa Barbara, the two-time defending WSC champion, is 3-0 in WSC play. Cuesta fell to 9-5 and 0-2.

Halie Johnson scored four times vs. Cuesta and Bailey Gonzalez and Lili Talkin had four steals each. Johnson and Gabrielle Ritter both got hat tricks in the win over the Rustlers (12-1) with Addison Seale notching four assists and Carr adding two assists and three steals.

“I was really proud of our team because Golden West was well coached and a very good team,” said coach Chuckie Roth. “In the end, we got some big 6-on-5 stops and we put away a few clutch goals. Nicole Cosares’ buzzer-beater at the end of the second quarter was really big.

“We played as a team as we were forced to go deep with several players in foul trouble.”

The Vaqueros will take on Long Beach at 11 a.m. on Saturday and unbeaten Riverside (14-0) at 2:15 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!
