CARPINTERIA, Calif. -

Carpinteria missed out on the playoffs last year when they failed to secure an at-large berth. This year the Warriors are winning it's non-league contests just in case they do not gain an automatic berth out of the tough Tri-Valley League.

The Warriors are off to a 3-0 start and will try and pick up another victory this Friday night at home against Santa Ynez.

Carpinteria is ranked third in the latest CIF Northwest Division but a playoff  spot will not be guaranteed as four teams in the TVL occupy the top four positions in the rankings.
