Boys’ Tennis: Chargers Net Dominate Win Over Buena

The Dos Pueblos High School boys’ tennis team (7-4, 3-1) headed to Buena on Thursday for their fourth league match and third match in a row. The team played efficiently with a 16-2 win.

Joshua Wang and Dylan Zapata swept their three sets without losing a game.

All of our alternates stayed pumped and focused in their sets — most notably Landon Brand, who won 6-0 against the No. 1 singles; Jeffrey McDaniel (who partnered with Ankush Khemani) who fired out big serves; Kyle Riharb and Ameet Braganza, who did aerobic tennis on the court by chasing down all of the balls; Chase Fierro and Justin Worley, who liked to charge the net; and Roshan Naik and Michael Soto, who had long rallies in a tight contest, falling to the No. 2 doubles team, 4-6.

Sportsmanship ruled the day between both teams. Coach Jordan was most hospitable.

Way to go, Chargers! Dos Pueblos will host Stockdale on Friday.

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!
