Carpinteria Plays Well in Loss Against Division 1 Ventura

Carpinteria gave defending CIF Division 3 boys tennis champion Ventura a close match on Thursday, falling 11-7.

"I think this loss made us more into a team than any of our most recent wins," said coach Charles Bryant. "We came together and it was fun to see how excited the boys were getting with each match."

Ventura is playing in Division 1 this season.

Carpinteria was strong in doubles, winning six of nine sets, with the three losses coming against Ventura's No. 1 team.

Esteban Zapata paired with Ian McCurry and Sam Castillo to go 2-1, as did Solomon Nahooikaika-Anderson/Kirby Zapata and Luke Nahooikaika-Anderson/Cameron Gralewski.

"All of our doubles team showed a lot of grit today plus their is a tremendous amount of upside with them as well.  We are still experimenting with teams but I was very happy with how the boys did today," said Bryant.

Austin Stone won the lone singles point for Carpinteria.

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!
