Carpinteria’s Pressure Too Much for Orcutt Academy

Warriors win opener at Dan Mercer Invitational

Carpinteria roared out to an 18-4 first-quarter lead and beat Orcutt Academy, 53-37, in an opening game at the Dan Mercer Invitational at Carpinteria’s gym on Tuesday.

Tori Kelley scored 18 points, Monique Sanchez had 12 and Harmony Reed tallied 11 for the Warriors (4-2).

“We started with the pressure on and we able to score quickly,” said Carpinteria coach Amy Bryant. “Our transition was good and the girls were looking for their teammate which led to several fast break layups.”

Bryant was pleased how her team rebounded.

“Orcutt had some good rebounders and were able to get several points off of put backs,” she said.

The Warriors continue pool play on Wednesday against Nordhoff at 7 p.m.

Fillmore 67, Providence 16

"She showed great heart, maturity, and never gave up regardless of score,” said assistant coach Manny Murillo.

In other games, Westlake beat Nordhoff, 48-39, and Royal routed Channel Islands, 46-24.

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!
