Bishop Diego football shoots for a CIF State title; Gold Coast Basketball Tournament Delayed by Thomas Fire

The high school football season just got a week longer as Bishop Diego was selected to play in the CIF State Playoffs after winning the Southern Section Division 6 title last Friday.

The Cardinals (13-1) will host Quartz Hill (13-1) in the Division 3AA Southern Regional Final at La Playa Stadium on Saturday at 6 p.m. The game was rescheduled from Friday because of the Thomas Fire in Ventura County. The winner advances to the State Championship on Dec. 16 against the Northern Regional champion, Marin Catholic of Shasta of Redding.

This marks the first time a Santa Barbara area high school football team has played in the State Playoffs.

Bishop Diego won its first CIF football title last week with a 37-6 win over Golden Valley.

In other highlights for the week, the annual Gold Coast Girls Basketball Tournament hopes to tip off Thursday at San Marcos. The tournament features two eight-team brackets played at San Marcos and Rio Mesa High. This year's championship game will be played at San Marcos' Maury Halleck Gym on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

Events are subject to change because of the Thomas Fire.

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!
