Cate Girls Tennis Hands Santa Barbara Its First Defeat

Cate handed Santa Barbara High its first loss in girls tennis on Friday, taking an 11-7 decision.

"I was very proud of how our girls fought for every point and they played their best tennis in the last round," Santa Barbara coach Greg Tebbe said. "Cate has a very strong team and it was a good experience for our girls to compete against strong competition."

Claire Stotts won two sets (6-2, 6-1) for the Dons (5-1). The doubles team of Claudia and Natalie Brewer won two of three sets. 

Cate's Grace Fuss went 2-0 (6-1, 6-2) and Jackie Cai went 2-1 in singles the Rams won six doubles sets.

"Grace played some really smart tennis to get us off to a good start in singles and Jackie Cai had a great come-from-behind win in her first round, too. She was down 3-5 but rattled off 4 straight games with real poise," said Cate coach Trevor Thorpe.

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!
