Cate Stays Hot With 17-1 Beating of Carpinteria

The Cate girls tennis team continued their hot start to the season on Tuesday, defeating Carpinteria 17-1 in a Tri-Valley League matchup.

Grace Fuss swept three singles sets 6-1, 6-0, 6-0 to power the Rams. Sydney Burton also swept three single sets, 6-2, 6-0, 6-0. The Rams dropped a total of 13 games over nine singles sets. 

Josie Gordon came away with Carpinteria's lone win in a 6-4 battle against Janice Ng.

"I thought Josie played well today and you can see how close she is to getting the next level," praised Carpinteria head coach Charles Bryant. "She constructed great points but unfortunately just came out on the wrong side of many of those. She is learning and getting stronger."

In doubles, the teams of Jackie Cai and Fritze Mayer swept three sets for the Rams. Mayer is the squad's lone freshman. 

"It's a real luxury to be able to play around with different lineups and a testament to the versatility of the players I get to work with," explained Cate head coach Trevor Thorpe.

Cate takes on rival Thacher next 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!
