Dos Pueblos Boys Score Fourth League Tennis Win

Chargers take down Ventura for 14-4 win

Under perfect tennis weather — just warm enough and a slight breeze — the Dos Pueblos High School and Ventura High School boys’ tennis teams were focused and fired up on Thursday to play their league match.

Both coaches are friends, and mutual respect ruled the day. The Chargers took eight of nine sets in doubles and six in singles in their 14-4 win.

DP’s starters had their hands full with Jacob Rucker (Ventura’s No. 1), who swept his matches. In two of the singles sets, two Chargers, Sam Boulanger and Joshua Wang, fell hard on the court but bounced back and continued to play. They didn’t want to come off the court and finished their matches. What a duo!

In doubles, DP’s starters did well. Mason Casady and Andrew Tufenkian lost only one game in their sweep.

At the end of the match, we shook hands and shared pizza. Way to go, Chargers! Dos Pueblos (11-2 overall, 4-1 league) will host Buena High School in another league match Friday. That will finish our fifth match of the week.
