Tennis: Dos Pueblos Turns Up the Heat on San Marcos

Despite toasty temperatures, the Chargers ice the Royals in a 13-5 win.

Under dry, desert-like heat, Dos Pueblos scorched the courts with its shots in an intense Channel League battle against its friendly “sister” rivals at San Marcos. Battling fatigue, the Chargers kept their positive focus throughout the match and came away with a 13-5 victory.

The Chargers swept almost all of the sets in singles, and one singles’ match went the distance. Dos Pueblos’ Hayley Edwards and San Marcos’ Julian Mannix had already played two tough rounds but mustered up enough energy for the third. The audience observed their pounding the ball to every part of the court. In dubs, the Royals demonstrated how deep their dubs teams were. The Chargers snagged five sets, and, again, the third round was captivating. Chargers alternates Nicole Eskenazi and Sofia Pasternack battled back from 2-5 to take the set from the Royals’ Liz Morris and alternate Jackie Gregoire in a 7-5 finish.

Super co-captain Erica Cano said it best: “I am most proud about how our team pulled together, and for the first time, I really feel like we were not only a team, but a family.”

With the win, Dos Pueblos improves to 8-1, 3-0 in Channel League play. San Marcos is now 3-2 overall, and 1-1 in league play.

Again, both teams had a nice group of fans to cheer them on!

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!
