Boys’ Tennis: Chargers, Royals Battle for Bragging Rights

Dos Pueblos comes out on top in a matchup of crosstown rivals

Although the Chargers of Dos Pueblos High School and the Royals of San Marcos are crosstown rivals, there’s a lot of camaraderie between the two teams — as well as good, solid tennis.

Dos Pueblos’ 14-4 win on Tuesday doesn’t reflect the toughness of the match. No one took anything for granted.

In the first round, Austin Cano started a little slowly but picked up his pace and placement to overcome a deficit and beat Petar Jivkov (No. 69 B14s) in a long set. Even DP’s No. 1 team of Andy Silverstein and Eric Katz scrambled a bit before winning their first set against Jackson Foster and Parker Funk. In the second round, Christian Edstrom played tough against a rejuvenated Jivkov and eventually took him down 7-5.

In doubles, Malcolm Sutton and Sasha Gryaznov had a seesaw battle with Foster and Funk, but prevailed in the tiebreaker. In the third round, Peter Shao and Sean Simpson fought hard against Foster and Funk, but fell in a tiebreaker.

Way to go, Chargers! Dos Pueblos, 13-5 overall and 4-3 in league, will play away at Santa Barbara High on Friday.

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!
