Boys’ Tennis: Dos Pueblos Improves to 6-0 with Win Over Oxnard

The Chargers played a varsity boys' tennis matchup Friday against Oxnard under quite warm and summery conditions, a stark contrast to Thursday's "cool" match at Buena.

Dos Pueblos came away with a 16-2 win, but the singles players felt the heat as some had long sets.

In singles, we snagged seven sets from the Yellow Jackets. Miles Baldwin swept, losing only two games. In addition, Patrick Corpuz took two more sets, dropping no games, and Quinn Hensley took two sets, one of which lasted well more than an hour and finished in a set tiebreaker (7-4 in Quinn's favor).

In doubles, we swept. Mason Casady and Joshua Wang dropped no games in their three sets. The other two pairs of Andrew Tufenkian and Ankush Khemani plus Sanad Shabbar and Noah Gluschankoff only dropped three games between them.

I have known Coach Tom "Nice" McGuirk for many years. The sportsmanship between the two teams was outstanding. We also appreciated the crowds that came to watch. Again, I am proud of the team's focus throughout the match.

DP improves to 6-0. Way to go, Chargers!

The Chargers will host San Marcos at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.

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!
