Carpinteria boys tennis team defeated Hueneme 18-0
The Carpinteria boys tennis team traveled this week to Hueneme High School in Oxnard, where the Warriors beat the Vikings 18-0.
“We mixed up our lineup a bit but the boys played very well in their new assignments,” Coach Charles Bryant told the News-Press about Tuesday’s match. “We ended up winning 18-0, but both teams had a good time together, and we really enjoyed the camaraderie with the Viking players.”
In singles, the Warriors’ Connor Gralewski, Troy Zimmerman and Ian Thomas each went 3-0.
“It was great to see them hitting a lot of balls, working on their serves and learning the ‘different’ game of singles as all of them are doubles players,” Bryant said.
“Our doubles lineup did just as well as Austin Stone/Ben Persoon, Max Stone/Nolan Martin and Zaiden Juarez/Ryan Souza each went 3-0 on the day,” he said. “But more than the score, I was really happy and impressed with ‘how’ we played. We knew the Hueneme team was young and did not have the same amount of experience as our team, but we went out with a game plan of making the Hueneme players hit a lot of balls by keeping our balls in play and focusing on minimizing our unforced errors and not going for winners.
“We did just that, and both teams enjoyed their three sets of tennis, which was great to see,” Bryant said.
Next week Carpinteria will compete in Ojai at Thacher and Nordhoff. Carpinteria is now 11-4 overall and 5-1 in the Citrus Coast League.

“Georgia is a great contact hitter, and we were confident when she came up with the game on the line,” Gerken said. “I’m really proud of Jessica Reveles’ focus at the plate today. Her two hits both came at crucial times, especially her two-out RBI in the fifth.”
