Carpinteria Swimmers Sweep Meet With Grace Brethren

The Carpinteria swim teams swept a dual meet with Grace Brethren on Wednesday at the Carpinteria Community Pool.

The boys won 99-41 and the girls scored an 89-51 victory.

The boys 200 medley relay team of Sal Briceno,  Caleb Classen, Jordan Perez and Malek Mehai scored a solid win. On the day, Mehai swam two relay 50 splits of 23.6 and 23.7.

On the girls side, Jessica Cruz led a sweep in the 50 free. Sadie Mead and Leilanie Silva finished second and third.

The performance of the day, according to coach Matthew Organista, came from freshmen Alexis Persoon, who beat her predicted 500 free time by 40 seconds to almost make a CIF automatic time of 5:56. 

The 200 freestyle relay of Emily Dutche, Silva, Olivia Perez and Amy Perez closed a 6-second gap behind Carpinteria’s A team and Grace Brethren only to out-touch Grace Brethren and take second place. The A team of Alisa Lemere, Sydney Endow, Cruz and Persoon clocked a CIF consideration time of 1:58.63. 

Organista said the Warriors swam with heavy hearts after the death of classmate Filiberto Hernandez, a senior at Carpinteria.

"Considering everything that happened this week and with light practices and hearts aching, we came out with a really strong showing.  I am proud of them for swimming and going for it today," said Organista.

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!
