Bishop Diego Outplayed by Villanova

Despite some strong, gritty, doubles play, the Bishop Diego girls tennis team fell to Villanova Prep 2-16 in a Frontier League matchup on Tuesday.

The No. 1 doubles team of Ellee Braniff and Kate Benzian went 1-2, 3-6, 0-6, 6-3. Taylor Woodward and Angie Garcia Gonzalez finished 1-2: 2-6, 0-6, 6-0. Both doubles teams managed to finish strong and win their third sets. 

"We continue to work on our personal games and collectively celebrate our small successes," said Bishop coach Natlee Hapeman. "I am proud of our patience, persistence and the love of the game."

Bishop next plays at Santa Clara High on Thursday.

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!
