Carpinteria Players Advance to Frontier League Tennis Finals

Carpinteria placed a singles player and a doubles team in the finals of the Frontier League tennis individual tournament on Tuesday.

Jeremy Saito upset Foothill Tech's No. 2 seed CJ Haberbush, 6-2, 6-0, to reach the singles final. Sam Truax and Luke Nahooikaika-Anderson knocked off Ethan Wang and Peter Jesperson of Foothill Tech, 6-3, 6-3 in the doubles semifinals.

The Warriors doubles team will face Dom DuMont and Noah Colby of Foothill Tech in the final on Thursday at Carpintera. DuMont-Colby outlasted Carpinteria's Kirby Zapata-Solomon Nahooikaika-Anderson in the other semifinal, 6-3, 4-6, 7-5.

Saito takes on top-seeded Yuvi Narang of Foothill Tech for the singles title at 3:30 p.m.

"Jeremy Saito played brilliantly," Carpinteria coach. Charles Bryant said. "He was just very relaxed and calm and took down a high quality opponent.  He was in control the whole time but will now have his work cut out for him in the finals against a talented freshman in Yuvi Narang.

"In doubles, I thought our teams played well overall," Bryant continued. "Sam Truax/Luke Nahooikaika-Anderson were tough today.  They had to face a new, but very strong team from Foothill Tech in the semis but really played smart and steady.  They too will have a tough final against two imposing Foothill Tech players . Kirby Zapata/Solomon Nahooikaika-Anderson had a rough start in the semis but really played well in the second set and forced a deciding third set which came down to the wire."

The top two singles players and the top two doubles teams will advance to the CIF Sectionals to be held at Carpinteria (doubles) and at Cate (singles) on May 25.  The third place player or doubles team will be the alternates.

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!
