Warrior girls repeat as CIF champs Carpinteria High School girls tennis finished what it set out to do this season in defending its CIF Southern section division v championship on nov. 15 at Claremont tennis Club. Warriors singles players—Kelsie Bryant, Kassandra Ni and Odessa Stork—continued to be dominant against Riverside Poly, and doubles players rose to the challenge presented by Riverside’s tough lineup to help the Warriors capture the 12-6 victory. Bryant swept her sets and finished the season with a personal 67-1 mark. “Winning CIF for the second time is so unbelievable and exciting. We’ve worked toward this day the entire season, and it paid off,” stated the junior. The Warriors won the first round of play 5-1 and led 9-3 after two rounds. The third round was a race to see which Warrior could snag the deciding 10th point for the championship. Stork won her set, 6-1, to clinch the victory. Stork, a freshman, swept her three sets, and Ni, a junior, won two before subbing out in the final round.

School board faces $60 million in facilities needs/wants By LEa BoyD The Carpinteria Unified School District’s Board of Education was hit with sticker shock on Nov. 15 when it received a $60 million wish list of improvements to the district’s seven campuses. Proposed facilities upgrades include new construction, such as a science wing at Carpinteria High School and a new Summerland School, as well as replacement of aging portables, electrical upgrades to classrooms and parking lot reconfiguration. Board members are now faced with the task of whittling down the list to strike a balance of needs and wants at a cost that voters will support in a bond election anticipated for November 2014. “We are not going to go to the public and ask for $60 million,” said Boardmember Terry Hickey Banks. “So we really do have to hone it down and get it right.” Developed over the last year with input from teachers, administrators and parents, the Draft Facilities Master Plan presented to board members last week “We are not going to go to the public and ask for $60 million, so we really do have to hone it down and get it right.” ––Boardmember Terry Hickey Banks represents six months of work completed by a small group of community volunteers who assessed districtwide priorities, assigned cost estimates and considered the likelihood of public support for each.
