Boys’ Tennis: DP Takes Charge in JV Win Over Orcutt Academy

The JV Chargers of Dos Pueblos High School finished their second boy’s tennis home match on Wednesday by facing off with the JV Spartans from Orcutt Academy, winning 11-7.

Many adapted well to the various playing styles, as well as to the windy conditions.

In singles, Dylan Zapata and Sanad Shabbar took five sets, losing only one game between them. In doubles, DP took six sets.

The last set of the day kept us riveted, as Jeffrey McDaniel and Ameet Braganza went toe-to-toe with the No. 1 doubles team. Eventually, the set went in favor of the Spartans. Both pairs showed great movement and fearlessness at the net.

Again, we had a nice crew of parents and varsity players (Mason Casady, Ankush Khemani, Joshua Wang, Andrew Tufenkian, Quinn Hensley, Alex Yang and Greg Steigerwald) to help and offer encouragement to the team. 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!
