Boys’ Tennis: Dos Pueblos Outmuscles Thacher, 10-8

After vanquishing Toads, Chargers look forward to a match at San Marcos

Dos Pueblos played a friendly nonleague match with Thacher under warm and calm conditions in Ojai on Monday. The Toads’ courts are layered, like stairs. The Chargers played four varsity matches on the hill above the pool, and two matches below the pool — and came away with a 10-8 victory.

In many of the sets, Dos Pueblos had to “leap” into action, as some of the sets were very tough. In doubles, the Chargers took seven sets, thanks to the consistency displayed by Malcolm Sutton and captain John Kim, who swept their three; Andy Silverstein with two different partners, Eric Katz and Gabe Li; and Eric Zmolek and Jake Roberts. Although missing two of Dos Pueblos’ top singles’ players, the Chargers fought hard to snag games and sets. Thacher’s McCoy Becker (No. 112, Boys 16s) gave the Chargers trouble in taking all three of his sets. Nonetheless, Dos Pueblos battled back to take three sets of its own, thanks to captain Christian Edstrom and Austin Cano.

In addition, Dos Pueblos’ JV players fired up the courts in their fun matches, and won all of their sets in dubs and singles. Great job Sean Handley, Yohan Chappaz, Taylor Howard and George Turvey!

With the win, Dos Pueblos improves to 6-1 while Thacher drops to 1-2. The Chargers play at San Marcos on Tuesday.

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!
