UCSB Notches 5th Straight Volleyball Win

UCSB continued to roll in the second half of the conference season, winning its fifth straight match, 3-1 over Cal State Fullerton, behind another career performance by Lindsey Ruddins, who led the way with a match and personal-best 27 kills to go along with 15 digs and a .411 hitting percentage.

The game scores were 25-27 25-18, 25-14, 25-15.

Emilia Petrachi passed the 20-dig mark for the second straight match, tallying a match-high 21 digs for the night. Hannah Juley led all players with 47 assists and added 14 digs to earn her third double-double in her last four outings.

Middle blockers Elizabeth Sheffield and Phoebe Grunt were the only other Gauchos to reach the 10-kill mark, ending the night with 11 and 10, respectively.

The Gauchos (17-9, 8-5) continued to sizzle from the service lines, enjoying a 12-1 advantage in aces. They also managed to hit at a .285 clip for the night, compared to .159 for Fullerton.

The Gauchos will be back in action again Saturday night to play UC Riverside at 7:00 p.m.

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!
