Setter Gavin Lohuis dished out 37 assists in a 25-17, 25-15-, 25-18 sweep by the top-ranked Carpinteria boys volleyball over Nordhoff on Senior Night Thursday.

Carpintera, the No. 1 team in CIF-SS Division 5, improved to 10-3 on the season and 8-1 in the Citrus Coast League.

“Gavin was distributing nice hittable sets to all of our hitters in the front row, back row and, more recently, he is setting more combinations plays,” said Carpinteria coach Mickey Caughey. “Our passing is getting better each game, giving Gavin three to four options as to who he can set. 
That  kept our opponents guessing as to who he was going to set next.”

Diesel Slade and Joaquin Gonzalez both had double-doubles. Slade had 11 kills and 10 dig, while Gonzalez collected 10 kills and 11 digs and served with two aces. Zach Isaac had three aces, five kills, and block and 26 digs. Sebastian McCurry added three aces and 24 digs.
