Carpinteria Overcomes First-Match Jitters, beats Pacifica

Carpinteria settled down after some first-match jitters and beat Oxnard-Pacifica, 13-5, in a non-league tennis match on Tuesda

The doubles teams of No. 2 Athena Cuellar/Maria Zamora and No. 3 Hali Schwasnick/Jessica Lord all went 3-0 and set the tone of the day. 

In singles, Jeanette Fantone went 2-0, while Kathryn Blair and Josie Gordon each went 2-1.

"We had so many first-match jitters that I was a little worried about them," Carpinteria coach Charles Bryant said. "But they all seemed to overcome them in their warmups and really played well, I thought."

The match was the first in high school for many Carpinteria players.

"One third of our team has never played high school tennis but they are all eager and willing. which is a great sign."

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!
