JV Chargers Win First Boys’ Tennis Match of Season Over Santa Ynez

The JV Chargers won their first match of the season in a close 11-7 boys’ tennis contest vs. the JV Pirates of Santa Ynez.

Both teams were energized and played well.

The strength for the Chargers was primarily in doubles as we grabbed six sets, three of which went the distance. It was good that we practiced tiebreakers. Landon Brand and Michael Soto navigated through and won the tiebreaker in their first set.

On another court, Jeffrey McDaniel and Justin Worley (aka Tsonga) took the breaker in their first set, as well as the next two sets. Captain William Bermant and his partner, Ameet Braganza, managed a clean sweep, losing only eight games.

In singles, the Chargers took four sets — Sanad Shabbar swept his three, and Dylan Zypata took one.

Way to go, Chargers!

The JV Chargers are on the road to San Luis on Wednesday.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
