Tennis: Dos Pueblos Guts Out 11-7 Victory Over Santa Ynez

Despite a shuffled lineup, the Chargers remain red hot.

Despite midterms and the heat wave floating over the Santa Ynez Valley, Dos Pueblos persevered for an 11-7 win over Santa Ynez on Friday.

The scores from the long nonleague match did not indicate how tough the sets were, particularly in dubs. The experienced Pirates gave the Chargers quite a battle. Without veteran dubs starter Amy Logan, Dos Pueblos rearranged the lineup. Erica Cano teamed up with Amy Sagraves to quickly take their two sets. The Chargers snagged three more sets (long ones), thanks to Nicoletta Bradley/Oriane Matthys, Melissa Dahl/Anna Slyutova and Nicole Eskenazi/Sofia Pasternack.

In singles, Hayley Edwards and Lauren Stratman did their usual magic and lost only three games in the five sets they played. Hannah Zimmerman played three tough sets, winning one of them. In all three, she demonstrated how well she could move all over that court. Likewise, Shelbi Nigh “left it on the court” in her long battle against her opponent, a “human backboard.”

Dos Pueblos is now 17-2 while Santa Ynez is 16-2. Next up for the Chargers is a visit to Santa Barbara on Tuesday.

In tennis, like life, we undergo a stream of changes; it is important to remain even-tempered, as best as we can, throughout each momentum shift, and be patient with ourselves. On Friday, everyone contributed to the hard-fought win. 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!
