BVB: Dons shuffle lineup, beat Ventura in four

Injuries and illness forced Santa Barbara High’s volleyball team to shuffle some players around in its Channel League match against visiting Ventura on Tuesday.

Playing without outside hitter Tristan Fauntleroy and libero Carl Mendoza, the Dons pulled out a four-set match, 25-10, 25-18, 23-25, 28-26.

Nick Kvistad was called up from the JV team and turned in a solid performance with six kills, four aces and two blocks. Will Howard stepped in at libero and played well, said coach Chad Arneson.

Quinn Denkensohn moved to the outside and had five kills and Ryan Worley provided four kill and seven digs.

The Dons improve to 5-0 in league and 15-6 overall. They have a bye Thursday and open their Karch Kiraly Tournament of Champions against Harvard Westlake on Friday at 4:15 p.m.
