This Week in Local Sports

Playoff time has arrived for prep fall sports. The action for boys water polo, girls volleyball, girls tennis and 8-man football begins this week.

There's lots of playoff action on Tuesday. San Marcos and Laguna Blanca are both home for first-round girls volleyball matches, and Dos Pueblos, Santa Barbara and Carpinteria open their boys water polo playoffs at their home pools. Also, Santa Barbara High's girls tennis team plays wild-card match at home against Viewpoint.

The first-round of girls tennis is on Wednesday, and San Marcos, Dos Pueblos and Cate drew home matches in their respective divisions.

On Thursday, San Marcos goes after Channel League titles in cross country at Camino Real Park in Ventura. In football, Santa Barbara High has an important football game against Buena at La Playa Stadium. The Dons need a win to secure a CIF playoff berth. A loss would create a three-way tie for second and jeoparadize their chances.

Two league championships will be on the line. Bishop Diego hosts Grace Brethren for the Tri-Valley League title, while Carpinteria travels to Santa Clara in Oxnard for a Frontier League championship showdown.

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!
