Boys’ Tennis: Dos Pueblos Stings Camarillo in 15-3 Victory

On eve of Channel League play, Chargers step up to stomp Scorpions

“Fight for it ...” Under warm conditions, touched by a subtle breeze, Dos Pueblos (3-1) took the sting out of the Scorpions at Camarillo (3-4) with effective shotmaking and endurance. Having played two tough schools last week definitely prepared the Chargers for this match.

In dubs, Dos Pueblos captured eight sets, with Eric Katz and Andy Silverstein sweeping their three decisively. Jake Roberts and Eric Zmolek started off slowly but put the pressure on their opponents, and won two of their three sets. Robert Laskin and Sean Simpson played with authority in snagging their lone set before John Kim and Malcolm Sutton subbed in. Kim, fresh from the Dos Pueblos Engineering Academy’s appearance at a weekend Robotics competition in Long Beach, and Sutton did not let fatigue slow them down, as they finished their two sets quickly.

In singles, Dos Pueblos (3-1) took seven sets. Sasha Gryaznov swept his three sets and lost only four games. Richard Cheng also swept his three sets, and provided a thrilling last set in taking down a much taller player with a higher ranking. The match oscillated back and forth. In the end Cheng prevailed in a tiebreaker, 7-5. This “bundle of energy” ran down every ball and sent clean winners here and there. Alternate Peter Shao also contributed to the Chargers’ singles’ total with a fine win.

It was a great team effort. Way to go, Chargers!

Next up for Dos Pueblos is its first Channel League match, at Ventura on Tuesday.

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!
