Carpinteria Closes Out Cate in Four Sets; Bishop Sweeps Fillmore

Carpinteria came up big down the stretch in sets and defeated Cate, 25-19, 22-25, 25-21, 25-21, in a Tri-Valley League boys volleyball match on Tuesday.

"Carpinteria was able to thrive under pressure and secured the win in the fourth set," said Warriors coach Dino Garcia.

"We had another great night of playing but just couldn’t close out the games," Cate coach Greg Novak said. "It seemed we had the lead in every set and it was around the 19 mark that we’d commit a string of unforced errors."

Sophomore Carson Williams was solid at the net for the Rams, recording five of the team's eight blocks. Freshman led the Cate attack with 12 kills.

Pablo Ortega led a balanced Carpinteria offense with 13 kills, Armando Soriano had 12 kills and Jack Gay added eight kills. Setter Travis Mead played with confidence and handed out 28 assists, said Garcia.

On defense, Ortega had 11 digs, Soriano picked up seven digs and had two blocks and Gay dug six balls.

Carpinteria improves to 8-2 oveall and 6-2 in league. Cate is 2-5 in league and overall.

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!
