Wrapping up an historic year for the Warriors, there were five Citrus Coast League Championships in the inaugural year of the new league (girls tennis, boys water polo, girls water polo, boys tennis and boys volleyball). Eleven of the 18 Carpinteria High School athletics programs advanced to the CIF playoffs, four made the quarterfinal round, two advanced to the semifinals (girls water polo and boys basketball) and one earned a trip to the CIF State Regional (boys basketball). Nearly 50 Warriors were named to Citrus Coast League All-League teams, and the Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table honored Gabe Medel with the “Phil Womble Ethics in Sports Award” and Luke and Solomon Nahooikaika-Anderson were named “Student Athletes of the Year.” In addition, there were more than 280 varsity letter winners. But the sports season is not quite over; on Thursday, May 16, five Warriors will be in action when CHS hosts the CIF Individual Tennis Sectionals. Austin Stone will be the sole representative in the singles matches to be held at Cate School. Two doubles teams from CHS have qualified for the portion of the bracket that will take place on campus. Solomon Nahooikaika-Anderson will team up with Kirby Zapata and Luke Nahooikaika-Anderson will be paired with Cameron Gralewski.
