Boys’ Tennis: Chargers Fall to San Marcos in JV Matchup

The JV Chargers of Dos Pueblos High School played their first of two boys’ tennis matches versus the JV Royals at home on Tuesday, with San Marcos scoring a 13-5 win.

Their strength rested in singles with a sweep by Dylan Zapata, who lost only four games, and one set from Ameet Braganza.

San Marcos dominated the doubles, thanks to Coach Fred Hartzman. In doubles, DP’s lone set came from Chase Fierro and Landon Brand.

Coach Alexei and I saw lots of energy and fire on those courts. Some of the sets lost were quite close. Three of our varsity captains, Mason Casady, Ankush Khemani and Joshua Wang, along with teammates Sanad Shabbar, Greg Steigerwald, Andrew Tufenkian and Noah Gluschankoff joined to support the JV team.

Sportsmanship prevailed Tuesday. Both teams, including the three coaches, shared cookies and handshakes at the end. Way to go, Chargers!

The JV Chargers have their next match at home on Wednesday versus Orcutt Academy.

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!
