The five schools in the Channel League brought many fine players to compete in the Individual Tournament. They all dug deep and pushed their opponents to the limit, as evidenced by the second-round matches.

Chargers Handley and Wang did a lot of grinding, and stayed pumped through their long matches. We could hear the skidding of Handley’s shoes as he slid around the courts.

The last time we had two Chargers head to the semis was in 2009. This was the first opportunity for freshman Wang to play Maassen, as he played dubs against SB in the league matches.

Handley met Liddell for the first time as well, as he had not played him in the league matches. Way to go, Chargers!

Tuesday: Pollero (SB) def Handley 6-0, 6-1.

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!
