Boys’ Tennis: Dos Pueblos JV Bounces Back After Spring Break for 11-7 Win

Under blustery, cool conditions and right after spring break, the Dos Pueblos boys' JV tennis team jumped around Monday to stay warm in their seventh match of the season, winning 11-7 over Carpinteria.

The Chargers' strength was in singles, with seven sets won, thanks to Mason Dochterman, Kellen Roberts, Chris Lane and Davide Gerli. Two of the sets went the distance. One set went in our favor, and the other not. Mason won his long battle 7-6, and Kellen lost his 6-7. Both gave us spectators spectacular tennis to watch. Because of the changing wind, they had to change how they played, and used a variety of shots.

In doubles, we grabbed four sets, thanks to Ameet Braganza and Ryan O'Gorman, who took two; Jeffrey McDaniel and Ryan Daniel, one; and Justin Worley and Jason Lee, the fourth set. Landon Brand and Garret Foreman almost took a set but fell in the tiebreaker.

Overall, a fine effort as well as sportsmanship by both teams. We appreciate Coach Saito's coming to play over their team's spring break. At the end we shared handshakes and See's lollipops. Again, we are grateful for the numerous supporters who came to cheer.

Dos Pueblos JV improves to 7-0. 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!
