CARPINTERIA DEFEATS VILLANOVA PREP
Despite Ojai’s 93-degree heat Tuesday, the Carpinteria High School girls tennis team defeated Villanova Preparatory School 13-5.
The heat drained the Warriors’ energy, leading them to struggle at times, Coach Charles Bryants told the News-Press in an email.
But ultimately, the Warriors prevailed.
“In singles, Zahra Porinsh went 3-0 but was challenged in two of her sets. She had to dig a little deeper and really had to figure out how to pull out two of her wins,” Coach Bryants said. “Neida Garcia went 1-2 and played an exceptional first round, winning 6-1.
“We swept all nine points in doubles and only dropped six games total,” he said.
Natalie Martinez/Ariana Lounsbury, Natalia Perez/Cassandra Maya Prado all went 3-0. Valeria Ojeda went 2-0 with Abbie Delwiche and 1-0 with Stephanie Gonzalez to round out the scoring.
As of Tuesday, Carpinteria was 2-3 for the season.
