SBCC Wins Twice to Go Undefeated in Central Coast Invitational

Santa Barbara City College stormed out to big leads in both of its women’s water polo games on Saturday on the final day of the Central Coast Invitational at Cuesta. The Vaqueros walloped Merced 19-2 and beat Cerritos 13-7 to complete a 4-0 run in the two-day, season-opening tourney in San Luis Obispo.

Halie Johnson scored five times in the first game as the Vaqueros opened a 9-0 halftime lead and were up 13-1 after three quarters. Ivana Bilaver added four goals and she and Johnson had three steals apiece. Charissa Dorn had a goal and four drawn ejections.

In the afternoon match, Kendra Carr and Addison Seale tallied four goals each while Johnson and Bilaver had two apiece. Seale had four steals for the Vaqueros, who led 8-2 at the half and 11-2 entering the fourth period.

All-American goalie Mackenzie Richards made five saves in each game.

“I’m super proud of our team, we played very well today,” said coach Chuckie Roth. “Kendra was very good offensively and Ivana was a mainstay at center defense. We have a great group of girls and we’re really looking forward to this season.”

The two-time defending WSC champion Vaqueros open conference play on Wednesday vs. Ventura in a 2:15 p.m. contest at the Ventura Aquatic Center.

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!
