Trumbull rose to the occasion in the Channel League title showdown at Dos Pueblos. She made 13 saves and stopped a penalty shot that would have tied the score with 1:49 left in the fourth period. The Royals won the game 5-4 to claim the title with an 8-0 record.

Wallace helped Dos Pueblos complete a worst-to-first Channel League basketball season. After going 1-7 the last two years, the Chargers finished 8-0. Wallace scored 20 points in a 64-60 overtime win at Buena and had 12 points and four assists in a 70-49 rout at Santa Barbara High.

Athletes who were honorable mention choices include Elizabeth Estrada (Carpinteria soccer), Tiffany Costello (SBCC track), Aiden Douglas (Santa Barbara High basketball), Ryan Fidel (Dos Pueblos wrestling) and Alex Cheng (Dos Pueblos soccer).

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!
