Dos Pueblos Boys’ Tennis Team Suffers First Loss of Season

By Liz Frech for Dos Pueblos High School |

The Dos Pueblos High School boys' tennis team played their second SB match away at Santa Barbara High School on Thursday.

Both teams had a good show of support. It was a tough match, but a close one at 7-11.

Yes, we had opportunities, as did our opponents. Both teams battled to the end in the long contest that went over 2½ hours.

Leading in singles, Patrick "Big P" Corpuz swept, losing only three games. In doubles, we snagged four sets thanks to Miles Baldwin/Andrew Tufenkian, Joshua Wang/Mason Casady and Greg Steigerwald/Alex Yang.

At the end of the day, what matters most is that we did our best — what we could do today. I am proud of this team's incredible effort today. Both teams showed great focus, attitude and sportsmanship.

Way to go, Chargers! DP's overall record stands at 10-1, and 4-1 in Channel League.

We host Stockdale on Friday for a 2:30 p.m. match.
