Cate Battles Back to Beat Carpinteria in Five Sets

Cate fought back from two sets down and beat Carpinteria in five in a Tri-Valley League boys volleyball match on Thursday.

The scores were 19-25, 19-25, 25-21, 25-18, 15-11.

Theo Mack sparked the comeback, picking up five digs and putting down seven kills in the third set. Jojo Broussard also was clutch on defnese in the set, earning five digs.

Cullen Barber provided some offense in the fourth set for the Rams, smacking five kills. Carson Williams stepped up in the middle and delivered three kills.

"In set four, we really came together as a team," said Cate coach K.C. Collins.

The Rams continued to play well in the fifth set and completed the comeback win.

"A few critical errors cost us the match in the fifth set," said Carpinteria coach Dino Garcia.

Opposite Jack Gay had 12 kills to lead the Warriors (8-7, 7-5). Middle blocker Ben Medel had eight kills and 3 blocks and libero Jiovani Arciniega picked up 20 digs

Collins lauded the play of libero Albert Barber, who passed well and picked up 23 digs for the match. She also praised setter Sebastian Richardson's hustle to the ball. 

"He stepped up to set a great match toward the end, taking some risks, engaging all of our hitters and it paid off," said Collins.

 Cate is 9-3 in league, with final matches at Fillmore on Monday and at Bishop Diego on Tuesday.

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!
