Carpinteria Beats Foothill Tech in Bizarre Fashion

The Carpinteria boys tennis team beat injury-laden Frontier League opponent Foothill Tech on Thursday in bizarre fashion. 

After the match ended in a 9-9 tie, the Warriors won on individual games 66-61. Due to Foothill Tech suffering injuries and illness, the Dragons had to forfeit four sets to Carpinteria. 

The Warriors received bad news early in the day after finding out No. 2 singles player Myles Morgan had a broken foot. 

The team of Sam Truax and Luke Nahooikaika won three sets for the Warriors (including one of the four forfeited sets, which ended with the pair up 4-2), and Solomon Nahooikaika and Kirby Zapata also went 3-0 without dropping a game. 

Foothill Tech swept Carpinteria in singles 9-0, but Jeremy Saito won ten games to give the Warriors the advantage and the match.

"It would have been a great match if both teams were at full strength," said Carpinteria head coach Charles Bryant. "But the way our doubles were playing today it probably would have come down to games again."

Carpinteria is now 7-9 overall and 4-1 in the Frontier League.

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!
