Boys’ Tennis: Chargers Sweep Up Against San Luis Obispo

The Dos Pueblos High School Chargers (3-2) and the San Luis Obispo Tigers (3-1) managed to sneak in a boys’ tennis match between rain showers at the DP courts on Wednesday.

Both teams had to play efficiently. After the first round, Dos Pueblos led 5-1, then 8-4 by the end of the second round, ultimately winning 12-6.

In singles, Patrick Corpuz swept 6-4, 6-0, 6-1, and we all watched his intense battle against SLO’s No. 1, Mason Hansen (131, B16s). In addition, Quinn Hensley gave us the fourth set in singles by snagging a 6-0 set vs. No. 2 Nick Johnson. Sanad Shabbar at No. 3 was leading 4-1 in his match vs. Brooks Rossi when he felt pain in his shoulder and arm. He bravely finished the set 4-6 and headed for treatment. Dylan Zapata stepped in to finish the next two rounds.

In doubles, DP took eight of nine sets. Mason Casady and Joshua Wang swept along with the duo of Caleb Franzen and Alex Yang. Lastly, Greg Steigerwald and Andrew Tufenkian took two sets.

We concentrated on closing out sets and it showed. I am proud of our team’s performance. Moreover, both teams showed great sportsmanship.

Our next contest will be next Thursday against Buena at home, our first Channel League match. 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!
