Carpinteria High School senior Noah Nuño was named first team All-CIF Southern Section in basketball’s Division FiveA. The sharp-shooting guard led the Warriors to their best season ever, reaching the CIF semifinals for the first time. As a result, Carpinteria was also invited to the State tournament, where they fell in the first round. The Warriors finished second in the Citrus Coast League to Hueneme with a record of 7-3 with an overall record of 15-15. Nuño made eight of 10 free throws in the closing moments against crosstown rival Cate in the quarterfinals to help propel his team past the Rams, 51-46 in front of a packed Warriors Gym.

Cate School’s Ethan Ng was also named to the CIF Southern Section’s Division FiveA team. The six-foot, two-inch, 170-pound junior guard led the Rams to a second-place finish in the Frontier League with a 6-2 record, coming up short against first place Villanova on the final game of the season. Cate finished 13-5 overall and lost to crosstown rival Carpinteria in the quarterfinals of the CIF-SS’s Division FiveA Tournament.
