Tennis: Dos Pueblos Outlasts Thousand Oaks, 13-5

The Chargers grind out a tough victory in a grueling, three-hour match.

Struggling with illness, fatigue, injuries and blisters, the Dos Pueblos girls’ tennis team still fought bravely and hard in its three-hour match against Thousand Oaks.

The Chargers’ strength was in the singles with eight sets won there, thanks to senior co-captain Erica Cano, Angie Dai, Hayley Edwards and Hannah Zimmerman. Well-conditioned Hannah had long rallies with Veronica Lin, the Lancers’ No. 1 singles player, and their duel lasted an hour, and was decided by a tiebreaker.

In dubs, Dos Pueblos captured five sets, thanks to the efforts of the No. 1 veteran team of Amy Logan and Amy Sagraves, and the No. 3 team of Nicoletta Bradley and Oriane Matthys, aka “The Comeback Kids.” Bradley and Matthys were down in two sets and battled to win them. The Chargers’ No. 2 team of Melissa Dahl and Anna Slyutova also had its share of a very tough, long set that went to a tiebreaker. Overall, a fantastic effort by everyone on both teams! I want to thank the supportive parents and friends who joined us at the match.

Dos Pueblos improves to 4-0 with the victory, while Thousand Oaks falls to 0-2.

Dos Pueblos hosts Mira Costa at 2 p.m. Friday.

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!
