“The Warrior girls performed well after a shaky start,” Carpinteria coach Van Latham said. “The girls bounced back nicely after dropping the baton in the 4×100 relay. Ariana Lunsbury typified the setback, comeback mentality. After taking a forward roll trying to make the pass in the relay, she set a PR to win the discus. The Warriors had numerous PRs during the course of the meet.
“The strength of Fillmore’s distance runners and field venters were too much for the boys. We gave at our best shot but could not find the answers against the Flashes.”
