Boys’ Tennis: Chargers Put Up Fight But Fall to Dons

Dos Pueblos stays focused, forcing some close sets

The windy conditions prevailed at Dos Pueblos High School on Thursday in the Chargers’ Channel League contest vs. Santa Barbara High School.

The Dons’ (6-0, 3-0) 15-3 win doesn’t indicate how long or how well the Chargers (5-2, 1-1) fought. The team stayed focused and pumped throughout the three-hour match.

In addition to sets won by Patrick Corpuz, Sean Handley and the doubles tandem of Joshua Wang/Mason Casady, the Chargers managed to have quite a few close sets of 4-6, 5-7 or 6-7. Those sets could have gone either way.

Handley at No. 3 singles and Wang/Casady at No. 3 doubles won the most games at 14, and had the tightest sets versus their opponents.

We appreciated the sportsmanship, camaraderie and crowd support from both teams. Next up for the Chargers is a road trip to Buena 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!
