Ventura Stands Tough to Beat San Marcos

The Royals had swings at the ball at point game in the first overtime frame, but couldn’t quite close it out, as the Cougars took the 32-30 win.

In game four, San Marcos battled back from a 5-0 defecit on the strong arm of Andrew Grimes (14 kills) and a five-point service run by Mike York to lead, 23-21. But a missed serve and a few long hits later, the night was over.

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!
