Boys’ Tennis: Chargers Suffer League Loss to Santa Barbara

The Dos Pueblos High School boys’ tennis team (6-3 overall, 2-1 league) headed to Santa Barbara (7-3, 3-0) on Tuesday, ready to play a Channel League match.

Although still windy, it was not the heavy gales from Monday. The Chargers started off with a few nervous shots, then calmed down as the matches continued. Each player gave everything he had in the 5-13 loss.

Overall, each adapted to his opponent and played smart tennis. We went in with nothing to lose against a No. 6, Division I team. We just wanted to do our best and show improvement over last year. We did.

The Chargers took five sets, one taken by Patrick Corpuz in his second round, and four in doubles, where each line took at least one set. Also, in doubles we saw a lot of action, with volley wars, scrambling and diving for balls, as well as big serves and smashes. In the first round, Mason Casady with Joshua Wang came from a 1-3 deficit against Ryan Chung and Austin Trevillian to take the set.

The atmosphere was upbeat and warm. Way to go, Chargers! A great effort!

Next up for the Chargers is a home match on Wednesday vs. Calabasas, No. 7 in Division I.

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!
