Boys’ Tennis: Chargers Come Out on Top Against Stockdale

Warm skies along with a warm atmosphere hung over the intense battle between both boys’ tennis teams Friday at the Dos Pueblos High School courts vs. Stockdale (12-5).

Big serves and aggressive play could be seen on most courts. This was the fourth match in a row for the Chargers (8-4). If they were tired, they did not show it, winning 10-8.

In singles, Patrick Corpuz swept 6-2, 6-2, 6-1. The Chargers fared better against the Division I, Central Section Mustangs in doubles and took seven sets.

Mason Casady and Joshua Wang continued their stellar doubles by sweeping 6-2, 6-1, 6-1. Their record stands at 22-2. Greg Steigerwald and Andrew Tufenkian took well more than an hour for their first set, which finished with a tiebreaker that went DP’s way (7-0). They then swept the next two rounds. Adding the seventh set were Ankush Khemani and Noah Gluschankoff.

All in all, a fine match with great sportsmanship from both teams. At the end, both teams shook hands and headed to Ming Dynasty to have dinner together.

On Monday, Dos Pueblos will host a league match with Ventura.

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!
