Tennis: Dos Pueblos’ Stratman, Cano Fall in CIF Regionals

Chargers stars push deep into tournament, but come up short.

Dos Pueblos’ Lauren Stratman (No. 9 Girls 14s) and Erica Cano (No. 95 Girls 18s), finalists in the Channel League Singles Tournament, qualified for spots in the Girls CIF Individual Tennis Regionals at Cate. Under calm and sunny surroundings, the players put on their game faces, focused on their talented opponents, and played brilliant tennis.

In the first round, Cano faced off against Abigail Phillips of Oaks Christian. After a tough first set loss, she took charge of the match and changed the momentum, taking the next set handily to push for a third-set 10-point match tie-breaker. Cano won that round 4-6, 6-1, 1-0 (10-6). In her second round, she battled hard against Nisha Leelavanich (No. 144 Girls 18s) of Chaminade. Again, the match went three sets, but resulted in a 6-1, 2-6, 0-1 (6-10) loss for Cano.

On another court, Stratman went three rounds. In her first round, she squared off against Lauren Boone of Marlborough, winning 6-0, 6-0. In her second round, she battled Sonia Landeros (No. 166 Girls 16s) of Rio Mesa, and won 6-2, 6-1. In the third round, she stepped up all of her shots to meet Maravick Mamiit (No. 22 Girls 18s) of South Pasadena. Both players used a variety of shots and covered the court with great footwork and speed. Mamiit’s spin serve won her a lot of points. The set scores do not indicate how well the match was played. In the end, Mamiit prevailed, 6-2, 6-2.

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!
