The Chargers swept singles and took eight of nine in doubles, winning 17-1 and improving to 12-2 overall and 5-1 in league.
Normal doubles players Greg Steigerwald, Caleb Franzen and Jake Roberts tried their hands at singles, with good results. All of our doubles teams — Joshua Wang/Andrew Tufenkian, Mason Casady/Ankush Khemani and Richard Souleles/Noah Gluschankoff — played efficiently. Dylan Zapata subbed in for Steigerwald in the third round and prevailed at 7-5 in a long contest vs. Jon Oyan (No. 2 Buena).
Likewise, in doubles, alternates Quinn Hensley and Ameet Braganza went the distance in a 7-6 (3) win over Dee Lucas and Jeff Baida (No. 3 Buena). In addition, Kyle Riharb and Sanad Shabbar took charge of their set in a 6-0 win over Andrew Huang/Slade Coleman (No. 2 Buena).
Everyone focused and performed well. At the end, we shook hands and shared cupcakes.
This was the fifth match for Dos Pueblos this week. Way to go, Chargers! They will host San Marcos High School in another Channel League match on Monday.
