Boys’ Tennis: DP’s Jared Madison Wins 1, Loses 1 at Regionals

He falls in the second round to Brett Buford of Calabasas

On Friday, Cate School and Carpinteria High hosted the boys’ individual tennis regionals for singles and doubles.

The weather, like the sites for the tennis regionals, was mercurial. We went from gray, cool, windy and foggy conditions to sunny and hot, and then back again. This year (unlike previous years), some singles players had to play at both sites.

Dos Pueblos High School’s Jared Madison (No. 35 B14s) began his first round match vs. Santa Ynez’s Miles Seeman at Carpinteria High. It was basically a rematch, as they had played in April at Santa Ynez, where Madison won 6-4. On Friday, Madison continued to play smart and stayed consistent to defeat Seeman 6-1, 6-4. They had long rallies and moved each other side to side.

In the second round, Madison faced the human backboard in Brett Buford (No. 61, B16s) from Calabasas. Madison had to battle Buford’s unorthodox strokes and unusual style of play. Madison did what he could but still went down 3-6, 1-6. Buford went on to beat his next opponent, Sean Hollister (No. 93, B16s).

We are proud of Madison for reaching the Channel League finals, which led to this tournament at regionals. Way to go, Jared!

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!
