Carpinteria High won a series of close sets on Monday on the way to a 15-3 boys tennis win over Hueneme in its first Citrus Coast League match.

“The scoreline could easily have gone another direction in many of the sets but we were able to pull out quite a few of those tight sets,” said coach Charles Bryant. “I was proud of our efforts today. We did a good job countering their ability to run down every ball and keep it in play. We were just as patient and did a great job constructing points.”

Carlos Costilla/Luke Nahooikaika went 3-0 in doubles while Kirby Zapata/Solomon Nahooikaika were 2-0 for the Warriors (4-1, 1-0). The No. 1 doubles duo — Ian McCurry and Esteban Zapata — dropped the first set, then won two straight to go 2-1. In singles, Myles Morgan and Austin Stone each went 3-0 while No. 1 Corban Pampel was 1-1.

“I was really impressed with Myles today,” noted Bryant. “He had a Golden Set (did not drop a single point) in his first match. He played in control and it was great to see him take it down a few notches and really work the point versus trying to hit someone off the court. He was hitting his first serve well too which really helped set up his next few shots.”
