Each team can be proud of their players and how they competed. Sportsmanship prevailed. The Chargers showed immense hospitality in providing snacks and treats for all of the participants. The treats were wrapped individually in gold and blue ribbon.
The scores do not reflect how tough the matches were.
Channel League singles continue at 3 p.m. Tuesday at the Santa Barbara Tennis Club with the singles semis: Morgan Hale vs. Patrick Corpuz and Jordan Rodnick vs. Kento Perera.
We want to thank Randy Weiss and Ed Soto from Union Bank (for providing towels) as well as Cathy Ann Simon from Santa Barbara Tennis Patrons (for providing cases of balls), for co-sponsoring the tournament this season.
Way to go, Chargers!
