Santa Ynez Overpowers Undermanned Carpinteria

A shorthanded Carpinteria boys water polo team was no match for a CIF top-10-ranked Santa Ynez squad and suffered a 19-7 loss on Wednesday at the Pirates' pool.

The Warriors were missing five players for the game and Santa Ynez took full advantage.

"Even though we were out five varsity players, this was a great opportunity for some of our younger boys to step in and fill their shoes," said Carpinteria coach Matt Organista.

Santa Ynez was dominating at the shallow end of the pool as it scored 14 goals against the Carpinteria defense.

Carpinteria was led by Ali Hamadi with four goals. Malek Mehai added two goals and Wyatt Stevenson scored one. Sophomore twin brothers Luke and Solomon Nahooikaika both doubled up with 6 steals.

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!
