Tennis: Dos Pueblos Opens Season with Road Win

Woodbridge proves to be no match for the visiting Chargers.

Dos Pueblos headed south for a nonleague doubleheader vs. Woodbridge and Santa Margarita Catholic this weekend. Despite of the long trek, the Chargers opened with energy, enthusiasm and positive focus Friday in an 11-7 win over Woodbridge.

In singles, Dos Pueblos (1-0) swept six sets, thanks to the efforts of No. 1 Erica Cano and No. 2 Lauren Stratman, who lost only seven games. The No. 1 doubles team of Amy Logan and Amy Sagraves showed its usual brilliant shotmaking in snagging two more sets. The fiery No. 2 team of Melissa Dahl and Anna Slyutova came back from a 1-4 deficit to win in a tiebreaker, then continued its momentum to overpower the No. 1 Woodbridge dubs team. The newly formed team of Nicoletta Bradley and Oriane Matthys added a nice set to the Chargers’ total of five sets won in dubs against Woodbridge (1-1).

Dos Pueblos also applauded the efforts of Shelbi Nigh and Hannah Park, two JV players who joined the varsity for this match. They raised their games immensely and played their hearts out.

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!
