SBVC 16-Blue to Start So Cal Club Competition in Division 3

Competing in their third Southern California Youth Volleyball Association Qualifier of the season, the Santa Barbara Volleyball Club's 16-Blue girls team met some pretty stiff competition compared to their last tournament.

Starting the day with a loss to Laguna Beach 16-1 (11-25, 9-25) “was a pretty tough way start to our day” said Coach Dillan Bennett.  “I liked however, that we battled through some tough scenarios with injuries and modified lineups. I thought both Caylin Zimmerman and Jenna MacFarlane did a great job handling the offensive load this weekend, and I thought our reserves did a great job helping us out of tough rotations throughout the day.”

In their second match of the day, SBVC lost a close one to SDVBC 16-1 (25-19, 11-25, 8-15), before ending the day with a win over CHV 16-Gold (25-12, 25-15).

Coach Bennett noted that “Kendall White and Izzy Mallet came off the bench and provided scoring from the service line, as well as great defensive play. Abby Corpuz also came in and played the front row, giving us smart offense from the right side.”

The results place the team in Division 3 to start their season.

“We look forward to the challenge of starting in Division 3 and earning our place back into Division 1 by season’s end,” said Bennett

Next up for SBVC teams, the 12’s, 13’s and 15’s  compete this upcoming weekend in their third and final SCVA Qualifier to determine where each will start the rest of their season.

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!
