Dos Pueblos Manhandles Cougars in 15-3 Boys’ Tennis Win

Chargers stay calm and focused in sweeping the first round

In the Channel League opener Monday at the windy courts in Ventura, the Dos Pueblos High School varsity boys’ tennis team took charge of the Cougars — particularly in the first round, where they swept — and came away with a 15-3 win.

In singles action, Sean Handley avenged his 5-7 loss to Jacob Rucker last season and beat him 6-2. In addition, Handley lost only four games in his sweep. Joshua Wang and Patrick Corpuz added another four sets to singles.

In doubles, Dos Pueblos took eight of nine sets. Focus, calmness and energy ruled the day, as well as solid tennis, sportsmanship and mutual respect. Way to go, Chargers!

Next up for the Chargers (4-1, 1-0) is a nonleague match at Westlake after spring break.

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!
