Cate Dominates in Win over Carpinteria

Kathryn Blair scored Carpinteria's lone point, as the Warriors fell to a potent Cate squad, 17-1, in a Tri-Valley League girls tennis match on Tuesday.

"Funny thing is, we played really well in the first round but then disappeared in the second round but came around again in the third round," Carpinteria coach Charles Bryant said. "I think because we played well and lost in the first round that our spirits were  a little crushed."

Sophomore Sarah Polowczak got her first singles start for Cate and rolled to three 6-0 sets. Grace Fuss continued her impressive freshman season, picking up another sweep, and Katherine Grossman added two sets to the singles tally.

In doubles, Cate got a sweep from Eva Herman/Janice Ng, while Summer Christensen and Carol Cai traded their usual partners for a series of new partnerships that yielded two more clean sweeps of doubles play.

The Warriors battled to the end. The doubles team of Jose Gordon and Maria Zamora took Cate to a tiebreaker before falling.

"They are definitely a solid, well-rounded team with not too many weaknesses," said Bryant of Cate.

Carpinteria is now 7-6 overall and 0-4 in the TVL. Cate is 6-0 and 4-0 in league. The Rams play San Marcos on 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!
