Carpinteria Pulls Out Five-Set Victory Over Cate

Carpinteria recovered from losses in sets two and three and defeated Cate in the fifth set of a Tri-Valley League boys volleyball match on Thursday night. The scores were 25-10, 25-19, 23-25, 22-25, 15-10.

"We stayed composed and sealed the deal in the fifth set," said Carpinteria coach Dino Garcia. 

Mayerik Rodriguez led the Warriors with 14 kills, two blocks, and seven digs. Setter and team captain Armando Soriano was clutch down the stretch, notching four kills and three blocks. He dished out 22 assists. Middle blocker Jonathan Flores had four blocks to go with eight kills.

Freshman Theo Mack had 19 kills for Cate.

"We found some holes in Carp’s offense which allowed us to compete in the third set and continue the winning in the fourth set," Cate coach Greg Novak said. "The team worked so hard to rebound in the third set, so when we won, it was like winning the match."

Cooper Mayer provided solid passing for the Rams.

Carpinteria is 2-1 overall and 1-1 in league. Cate, 1-1 in league, will go on a two-week break this Friday.

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!
