Tennis: Red-Hot Chargers Sweep to Victory over Ventura

Singles supply the power as Dos Pueblos coasts to a 15-3 home-court advantage.

Despite another day of desert-like heat, a fired-up Dos Pueblos squad swept the singles and took six sets in doubles in a 15-3 Channel League victory over Ventura on Wednesday on the Chargers’ home courts. Last month, Dos Pueblos pounded Ventura 17-1 on the Cougars’ home courts.

Erica Cano, Angie Dai and Hannah Zimmerman won their sets quickly Wednesday, losing only four games between them. In dubs, the Chargers’ starting teams of Amy Logan/Amy Sagraves, Melissa Dahl/Anna Slyutova, and Nicoletta Bradley/Oriane Matthys posted four wins before the alternates relieved them. With enthusiasm, energy and smiles, the alternates played tough and smart. Shelbi Nigh, all business on the court, won her singles quickly, as did Kee Kee Daniel. In dubs, Nicole Eskenazi/Sofia Pasternack and Kim and Lilli Preston captured two more sets.

Dos Pueblos, which hosts San Luis Obispo on Saturday, is now 10-2 overall and 4-1 in league play. Ventura falls to 2-9 and 1-4.

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!
