Dos Pueblos Boys’ Tennis Captures 14-4 Win at Cate

Chargers use doubles sweep to power past Rams in nonleague contest

By Liz Frech for Dos Pueblos High Boys' Tennis |

The Dos Pueblos High boys’ tennis team opened with a strong finish in its nonleague contest with Cate on the road. Fiery, focused and fearless, the Chargers came to play. Even the pristine and idyllic surroundings of Cate’s campus in the Carpinteria foothills did not distract.

Our freshmen showed hardly any nerves. We swept the doubles and lost only 11 games to the Rams. In singles, freshman Patrick Corpuz (a two-star recruit) managed to snag three games from Blake Mackall (a three-star recruit), regrouped and dispatched the next two players.

On the other end was senior Sean Handley, who also captured two sets. In the last set of the day, when daylight and fatigue can be factors, Handley displayed great shotmaking and prevailed against Austin Lokre.

Both teams exhibited fine performances and great sportsmanship.

Next up for the Chargers is an away match at Oxnard on Tuesday.
