Boys’ Tennis: Chargers Beat Cougars in Final League Match

The Dos Pueblos High School boys’ tennis team (12-6, 6-2) headed on the road to Ventura on Tuesday to play their final league match of the season. Some starters stayed back. They came away with an 11-7 win at the Cougars’ windy courts.

In singles, Greg Steigerwald swept, losing only two games, and Dylan Zapata took down two of his three opponents. His set was the last one of the day, and he played with fire, aggression and inspiration. Taking the sixth set for the Chargers was Quinn Hensley.

In doubles, the Chargers took five sets. Mason Casady and Joshua Wang split sets but extended their record to 37-4. Because of fatigue, they elected to step out, and Jeffrey McDaniel and Ameet Braganza stepped in. Ankush Khemani and Andrew Tufenkian took two sets, as did the combo pairs of Caleb Franzen, first with Sanad Shabbar and then with Noah Gluschankoff.

Sportsmanship prevailed between both teams. The Chargers finished second in Channel League.

Now, the Chargers are preparing for Channel League, which begins Monday at Buena High School.

On Thursday, Patrick Corpuz will represent us in the CIF Singles at Ojai.

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!
