Laguna Blanca Tennis Slips Past Carpinteria

Laguna Blanca's Mackenzie Kinsella and Katherine Monroy each swept their singles sets, leading the Owls to a 10-8 girls tennis win over Carpinteria on Friday.

Owls coach Rob Cowell said Kinsella played her best set in the third round against Carpinteria's No. 1 Jessica Santillan.

In doubles, Mia Waters and Hannah Miller rebounded from a first-round loss and won their next two sets. The team of Julia Bernard and Sophie Henderson won a pivotal tiebreaker of Karla Marin and Amy Perez (7-2) to help the Owls stave off Carpinteria.

Carpinteria (6-7 overall) got a pair of wins each from the doubles teams of Hali Schwasnick/Diana Gonzalez and Vicky Delk/Jessica Lord.

The Warriors are battling injuries.

"We had so many first-time tandems in doubles and a few new singles players out there today, but they all showed a lot of grit and determination," Carpinteria coach Charles Bryant said. "We are not using our injuries as excuses but rather as opportunities.  And from that perspective, I was very happy as the less-seasoned players or first-time partners really stepped up and fought hard."

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!
