Boys’ Tennis: Santa Barbara Proves Too Much for Chargers

Dons ride doubles sweep to 13-5 victory

Dos Pueblos hosted its Channel League match against powerhouse Santa Barbara, ranked third in CIF Division I. Wind and fatigue did not really affect the match, which the Dons won 13-5. Everyone played hard and to the best of his ability Thursday.

The Dons (8-3 overall, 4-0 in league) proved too deep in doubles and swept every set. The Chargers (8-2, 3-1) came close in one set when Peter Shao an Eric Zmolek took four games. Dos Pueblos won its five sets in singles, where Sasha Gryaznov swept, and Richard Cheng and Christian Edstrom each contributed a set. Although he lost, Cheng had an exciting set with Billy Grokenberger. Official Harry Van Besoyen, fans and coaches mingled well (even extending birthday wishes to the two Chargers coaches) and both teams displayed outstanding sportsmanship.

Dos Pueblos hosts San Marcos on Monday.

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!
