Boys Tennis: Chargers Put Up Solid Showing Against Arroyo Grande

Spring break did not hamper the Chargers' play Thursday at Arroyo Grande. They played with purpose and focus, and showed great movement.

Added to that, captain Patrick Corpuz cheered on his teammates, between points on his court.

The windy courts at Dos Pueblos prepared the Chargers for a windy non-league contest at Arroyo Grande. They took down the Eagles in a solid effort of 15-3.

They were without top starter Joshua Wang. We won eight of nine sets in singles, thanks to Corpuz and Miles Baldwin who swept, losing only five games between them. Quinn Hensley won the other two sets.

In doubles action, we won seven sets, where Mason Dochterman and Chris Lane swept. Other pairs who took sets were the pairs of Vincent Villano and Bryce Ambrose, Ryan Daniel and Ameet Braganza, and Ryan Hodosy and Garret Foreman. Two long sets went the distance but did not go our way. Braganza and Daniel's second round set was pushed to a tiebreaker. In the third round, Christian Hodosy and Ryan O'Gorman were down 2-5, climbed back to 5-5, but fell 5-7.

We appreciated the sportsmanship between the two teams.

DP improves to 9-3 overall. Arroyo Grande drops to 10-6.

Way to go, Chargers!

The Chargers host Stockdale at 3 p.m. Friday.

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!
