DP Tennis Players Have a Ball at Fundraiser

The Chargers work hard and play hard during Saturday's tournament

Under desert-like conditions, the Dos Pueblos High boys’ tennis team, as well as other Chargers, ignited the courts with community players during a fundraiser on Saturday.

The Chargers worked nonstop in cleaning up the courts and grounds throughout the tournament, as well as setting up food, tables and chairs, delivering food and ice to courts, monitoring matches, being “ball” boys, taking action shots and many other tasks, including gathering up items for recycling.

In addition, they played stellar matches with the community players. A few ringers also joined the tournament, such as the Stratman sisters and DP varsity alums Stu Hutchison and Rachelle Gin.

A special nod goes to Hugh Stratman and Ross Skinner, two teaching pros from Cathedral Oaks Athletic Club. They donated half-hour lessons as door prizes. In all, the community players, including those from other Dos Pueblos sports, made generous contributions. We thank them wholeheartedly!

Representing the Chargers on Saturday were varsity captain Andy Silverstein, junior varsity captain Michael Baik, David Chan, Chris Friedel, Taylor Howard, John Kim (a recent graduate), Peter Shao, Sean Simpson, Anjian Wu, Lauren and Kate Stratman, Gabi McDaniel and David Bojilov.

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!
