Boys’ Tennis: Chargers Race Past Mustangs, 16-2

Dos Pueblos bounces back from losses earlier in the week to beat Stockdale

Despite the fog and cold, the Dos Pueblos High School boys’ tennis team warmed up the courts Friday and raced past the Mustangs of Stockdale High School, 16-2.

Two tough league matches earlier in the week prepared the Chargers for this one. Overall, everyone played with focus and efficiency.

In singles, Robert Laskin, usually in doubles, showed his powerful serve, volleys and fine footwork as he took two of his three sets. The freshmen dueled in the third round, where Stephen Long played Matt Nisson. Down 3-5, Long regrouped, doing a variety of shots, and took the next four games to win the “long” set.

In doubles, Malcolm Sutton/Christian Edstrom fired up their shots and lost only three games in three sets. Both teams showed great sportsmanship.

We appreciate that Stockdale traveled to us — all the way from Bakersfield.

Way to go, Chargers!

The 5-4 Chargers will travel to Buena 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!
