Boys’ Tennis: Dos Pueblos Powers to Victory over Buena

Chargers improve to 5-1 record and 2-0 in Channel League play

Dos Pueblos won its fifth match Thursday, a 15-3 victory over Buena. If that scores sounds familiar, it’s because it’s the third straight match the Chargers have won with the same tally.

In the second Channel League match of the season, the Chargers used 16 players to sweep doubles and take six sets in singles from the Bulldogs. The score does not indicate how tough some of the sets were. Those tough sets serve as valuable lessons to help us in the next match. The two sets that went to tiebreakers kept our attention. The players had to grind out point after point to snatch the win. Way to go, Eric Katz/Sean Simpson, and Taylor Howard/George Turvey. Team camaraderie and the mantra, “Sean is gnar gnar,” inspired everyone to play well.

Way to go Chargers!

With the win, the Chargers improve to 5-1 overall, 2-0 in league play. Dos Pueblos travels to Ojai on Monday to play Thacher School.

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!
