Cate Takes Down Rival Thacher

The Cate girls tennis team pulled out a gritty league victory over Thacher on Tuesday, 11-7.

In singles, Thacher's Libby Kern played lights out, sweeping her three sets 6-1, 6-2, 6-4.

Cate's top singles players, Grace Fuss and Jackie Cai, each won two sets, and Carol Cai won one in her singles debut.

In doubles, Cate's Summer Christensen and Sarah Polowczack swept their three sets, improving to 18-0 on the season as a team. 

Eva Herman and Janice Ng also swept their three sets of play for Cate. 

"They are the defending D5 CIF Champions and have only lost to us so far this year," said Cate coach Trevor Thorpe. "So we take a lot of satisfaction from this victory."

With the victory, Cate improved to 7-1 (5-0 in Tri-Valley League play). The Rams next play Thursday at La Reina.

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!
