Boys Tennis: Chargers Lose Battle with Dons

The Dos Pueblos High School Chargers hosted the Santa Barbara High Dons on Tuesday in a league boys tennis contest under cloudy cover, with the Chargers falling 5-13.

In singles, Joshua Wang gave us a lesson in consistency and calmness as he took down the #1 and #3 singles' players in 6-0 wins. Quinn Hensley gave us the other set in singles after being down 0-3. Chris Lane battled to the end and almost won his first match, and climbed back from a deficit of 2-5. He fell 5-7 but stayed focused and energized for the remaining two rounds and took some games off tournament players.

In doubles, Miles Baldwin and Vincent Villano eked out two long and aggressive sets, and Ameet Braganza and Ryan Daniel battled in their first round but fell in a set tiebreaker.

We appreciated the numerous spectators who came out to support us.

I'm proud of our Chargers, who played gutsy and fiery plus showed great improvement from the last time we played this powerhouse team.

The Chargers head to Santa Ynez on Monday for a 3 p.m. match.

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!
