Tennis: Dos Pueblos Tops Santa Margarita, 10-8

Erica Cano and Amy Logan and Amy Sagraves give the Chargers a sweep feeling.

Under sunny skies and great camaraderie and sportsmanship, the Dos Pueblos and Santa Margarita Catholic girls’ tennis teams had an incredible competition Saturday.

“Third time’s the charm,” and “never say die” came to mind Saturday. After losing in tight matches to Santa Margarita over the years, the Chargers beat the Eagles, despite the absence of two starters. All the conditioning, hard work and determination paid off in this match. Everyone dug deep! No. 1 Singles Erica Cano and No. 1 Doubles Amy Logan/Amy Sagraves swept their sets handily. In spite of a sore shoulder, Oriane Matthys with her No. 3 dubs partner, Nicoletta Bradley, battled back from 1-4 to beat the No. 1 SMCHS dubs team, and fired up their shots even more to beat the No. 2 dubs team. Dos Pueblos’ fifth dubs’ set was won by the talented No. 2 doubles team of Melissa Dahl/Anna Slyutova. The Chargers also captured fifth singles, thanks to Shelbi Nigh, who moved up from JV and won her first varsity set!

With the win, Dos Pueblos improves to 2-0. Santa Margarita Catholic is 0-1.

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!
