Carpinteria won eight doubles sets and defeated Villanova Prep 10-8 in a non-league girls tennis match on Monday.

The team of Ashley Gonzalez/Natalie Martinez swept their three sets and only dropped three games; Ariana Lounsbury/Elena Vargas also swept and  Stephanie Ramirez/Allison Banks went 2-0 together. 

 In singles,  Zahra Porinsh and Charlotte Cooney each went 1-2 on the day.

“Overall, I was happy to get this match in and happy to have our girls dig deep even though we were not playing at our best,” said Carpinteria coach Charles Bryant.  “Villanova had a lot to do with that.  They will be a solid Division 5 team when the playoffs begin.”

Carpinteria is now 3-3 overall.


Carpinteria swept Santa Clara, 25-15, 25-12, 25-11, in a non-league girls volleyball match on Monday.

“We were on a roll tonight and made solid plays,” said coach Greg Novak. “Our goal is to stay in system when we get out of system, and we are definitely getting better at it.”

Elizabeth Alpizar hit well in her debut at outside hitter and Alexiana Jaimes was tough from the serving line and steadied the offense with her setting.
