Dos Pueblos Boys Sweep Doubles in 16-2 Tennis Win Over Cate

Chargers battle the wind, cold and injuries, but make it look easy

The Dos Pueblos High School boys’ tennis team battled through the wind, the cold, plus a few injuries on Wednesday and prevailed, posting a 16-2 win over Cate.

In singles, Sean Handley played the match of his life in sweeping his singles 6-4, 6-0, 6-0. His contest with Blake Mackall in the first round was incredible; both players produced a variety of shots, endured long rallies and fired up well-placed “bullet” serves. Patrick Corpuz took two sets at 6-0, and Sam Boulanger, new to our singles’ lineup, took two solid sets as well.

In doubles, we made a clean sweep. Mason Casady won with two different partners, Joshua Wang and Ankush Khemani, and dropped only four games. Similarly, Greg Steigerwald did the same with his two partners. His partner, Alex Yang, had to step out after the first round with a sore back, and Andrew Tufenkian stepped in.

The sportsmanship between the two teams was outstanding. We also appreciate the crowd support. Way to go, Chargers!

Next up for the Chargers is an away league match at San Marcos High School on Thursday. We hope it does not rain.

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!
