Boys’ Tennis: Chargers Wrap Up League Matches with Win

Dos Pueblos plays strong in singles and doubles

The Dos Pueblos High School boys’ tennis team ventured to Buena by bus under summery conditions on Tuesday.

Many of the Chargers’ starters had other commitments, mostly academic. For instance, the robotics team of Peter Shao, Sean Simpson and Eric Katz had been prepping for their trip to St. Louis. Nonetheless, the Chargers and their reserves played tough and took six sets each in singles and doubles, winning 12-6.

The first round was tough, as Greg Steigerwald encountered Brian Perrett, aka the “human backboard,” in a long set that went Perrett’s way and affected Steigerwald’s back. Actually, Matt Long and Jake Roberts could not break Perrett’s wall either. Steigerwald had to come out after the second round, as his back continued to hurt. Ankush Khemani relieved him, took a short warm-up and dispatched the No. 3 Bulldog Jon Oyan, 6-2. Also, Roberts, aside from his match with Perrett, lost no more games in the next two rounds.

In doubles action, Peter Prudhomme and Noah Kilman (normally in singles) played aggressive doubles and lost only two games in their three rounds. After Mason Casady and Richard Cheng grinded through that first set against Prudhomme and Kilman, they regrouped and lost only two more games in their next two rounds. The other doubles teams followed suit.

Overall, we observed a good match with great focus and camaraderie. To and from Buena, we also enjoyed a lot of food, a bit of song and so much laughter. The Chargers improved their record to 10-7 and finished their Channel League record at 5-3.

On Thursday, Roberts and Caleb Franzen head to Ojai in the CIF Doubles Division. Next Monday, Dos Pueblos will begin the Channel League Tournament at San Marcos. Way to go, Chargers!

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!
