Will Rottman Hammers West Ranch For 29 Kills in Four-Set Santa Barbara Victory

Will Rottman put on a hitting clinic, pounding 29 kills with just one error to power Santa Barbara High's boys volleyball team to a four-set win over West Ranch in the final regular season match of the season on Wednesday at J.R. Richards Gym. The scores were 25-22, 25-18, 18-25, 25-18.

"West Ranch is in Division 1, so this was a great tune-up match before playoffs are announced," said coach Chad Arneson. The pairings will be released on Friday.

West Ranch couldn't stop the sophomore Rottman. He hit a sizzling .800 and added 14 digs.

Setter Dane Westwick played a solid game, handing out 50 assists, blocking three balls and digging six. Libero Pierce Barnes passed 2.70 (out of 3.00) and had 14 digs.

Senior Henry Hancock recorded 14 kills and added five digs. 

"It was senior night and everyone contributed," said Arneson. "Andrew Gallivan, Dane Oneill, Will Buchanan and Makai Harris did a great job for the Dons."

Santa Barbara, the champions of the Channel League, will enter the playoffs with an overall record of 18-7.

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!
