Boys’ Tennis: Chargers Hit the Road, Fall to Calabasas

Austin Cano grinds out gutsy singles performance while doubles squads win five of nine sets in 12-6 loss

Dos Pueblos took the bumpy bus ride to Coyote territory in Calabasas on Monday. Without two of their top singles’ players, the Chargers knew they would have a tough battle and they were right, losing 12-6.

Each player fought hard to take games and sets. In singles, Austin Cano won the only set, and struggled for well over an hour to win a close tiebreaker against Josh Gartman (No. 185, B16s). Robert Laskin and Sean Simpson, who normally play doubles, stepped up to help in singles.

In doubles action, the Chargers snagged five of nine sets against very solid teams. Christian Edstrom partnered with Malcolm Sutton and the duo swept three sets 6-2, 7-5 and 6-2. Andy Silverstein and his partner, Eric Katz, snagged two.

Dos Pueblos showed great sportsmanship and camaraderie. With the loss, the Chargers fall to 12-3 overall. They play at Cate on Tuesday.

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!
