Tennis: Dos Pueblos Bounces Buena, 13-5

The streaking Chargers battle the elements to put a leash on the Bulldogs.

Dos Pueblos battled wind, dust and dry desert heat in its Channel League match at Buena on Tuesday. Illness and academic commitments kept some of the Chargers starters home, but the team still scorched the courts in a 13-5 win.

The Chargers (12-2 overall, 5-1 in Channel League play) captured six sets in singles, thanks to Nicole Eskenazi, Shelbi Nigh (who swept all three of her sets) and Kee Kee Daniel. In dubs, Dos Pueblos snagged seven sets, thanks to the veteran team of Amy Logan/Amy Sagraves, Nicoletta Bradley/Erica Cano, Melissa Dahl/Hannah Zimmerman, Megha Manjunath/Rashi Singh and Kim/Lilli Preston. The match was not without some tight sets against Buena (3-9 overall, 0-6 in league). The Chargers may not have won them, but the squad played some fine tennis. In singles, Sofia Pasternack battled in a long set vs. the No. 1 Buena player, losing in a tiebreaker. Rachel Amspoker/Gabi McDaniel lost in a tough fight, 5-7.

All in all, it was a fun match, as 34 players came out to play. Great camaraderie and laughter on the bus. Way to go, Chargers!

Dos Pueblos hosts Calabasas at 3 p.m. Wednesday.

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!
