Sports: A Noozhawk Partnership with The Lab and American Riviera Bank

This Week in Local Sports

It's Thursday, Friday and Saturday Night Lights in high school football

It's three days of high school football this week, cross-town matches in boys water polo,  girls volleyball, girls golf and tennis, and the start of Big West play for the UCSB soccer teams.

Dos Pueblos tries to extend its football winning streak to five games in a Thursday night game against Hueneme at Scott O'Leary Stadium. On Friday night, Bishop Diego returns home after four road games and plays rival Carpinteria at La Playa Stadium. On Saturday night, Santa Barbara looks to snap a two-game losing streak when it takes on Oxnard-Pacifica at La Playa.

Santa Barbara and San Marcos square off in the first Channel League crosstown boys water polo game on Tuesday at San Marcos, and Santa Barbara visits Dos Pueblos on Thursday.

Also on Tuesday, Santa Barbara's girls golf takes on the unbeaten Dos Pueblos Chargers at Glen Annie Golf Course, and the Channel League-leading DP girls tennis team hosts Santa Barbara.

The UCSB men's soccer team, winners of three straight games, plays nemesis Cal State Fullerton in the Big West opener on Thursday night at Harder Stadium. The Gaucho women's team opens conference Friday at home against UC Riverside.

On Saturday, the UCSB men's water polo team hosts top-ranked Cal at Campus Pool.

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!
