Boys’ Tennis: Chargers Battle Tough Against Mira Costa

Under very warm conditions Saturday, the Dos Pueblos High School boys’ tennis team fell to No. 8 Mira Costa, 6-12.

In the close sets, making more unenforced errors than the opponent changed the outcome of the set. We did not convert the sets we needed to convert. Nonetheless, the Chargers battled hard, as the match was well more than 2½ hours.

In singles, Patrick Corpuz took our only two sets. In doubles, Mason Casady and Joshua Wang continued their sweep, and extended their record to 34-2. In addition, Alex Yang and Greg Steigerwald took the fourth set.  Sportsmanship prevailed between both teams and coaches. At the end we shared handshakes and chocolate.

The Chargers will host Santa Barbara on Monday.

Dos Pueblos falls to 11-5 overall; Mira Costa improves to 15-2.

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!
