Cate Loses Tiebreaker to San Marcos

The Cate School and San Marcos girls tennis teams faced off in a non-league matchup Friday afternoon, with San Marcos eventually winning 80-61 on games after the teams tied 9-9 in sets.

It was the first loss of the season for the Rams.

In singles, San Marcos' Yuka Perera and Kelly Coulson swept three sets apiece without dropping a game. Cate's Grace Fuss managed a 6-0 victory and went 1-2 on the day. The Royals won 8 of 9 singles matchups.

Doubles were a different story. Cate's Summer Christensen and Sarah Polowczak swept to remain undefeated this season (15-0) at the No. 1 position. Sisters Carol and Jackie Cai also swept, and Eva Herman and Janice Ng won two of three sets. 

"I'm extremely proud of my team and the way we competed today," said Cate coach Trevor Thorpe. "We consider San Marcos to be probably the strongest team in the Santa Barbara/Ventura County area and our team pushed them to the limit."

With the win, San Marcos improved to 11-4 on the season. Cate dropped to 6-1.

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!
