Boys’ Tennis: Dos Pueblos’ JV Team Tops Bishop Diego

Chargers dominate in doubles in the 12-6 win

Tsunami waves couldn’t put out the fire displayed by Dos Pueblos High School’s junior varsity tennis team on Friday, as they battled well under changing weather conditions in their 12-6 defeat of the tough Bishop Garcia Diego High School varsity team.

From warm and calm conditions to swirly and cool, the Chargers stayed on task. We took five grueling sets in singles, three of which took well more than an hour.

Freshman Andrew Tufenkian, subbed in for an ailing Sam Harden, seemed to still have “legs” in him after his two long wins over the Cardinals’ top two singles players. In addition, junior David Chan snagged two, and captain Willie Bermant took one.

In the last set of the day, David Chan had a see-saw match under the shadows before succumbing in the tiebreaker on the No. 2 singles court.

In doubles, the Chargers dominated and took seven sets. Captain Yohan Chappaz swept handily with his partner, Richard Souleles. Pairs Noah Gluschankoff and Eugene Cho, and Andrew McGuan and Matthew Wu won the remaining four sets.

Coach Long has groomed the players well. They have all come a long, long way since the season began, and continue to make Dos Pueblos proud. Way to go, Chargers!

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!
