Chargers Net Second Straight Boys’ Tennis League Win

The Dos Pueblos High School Chargers (5-2, 2-0) headed to Royals’ (5-3, 0-1) territory for their second boys’ tennis league match of the season, beating San Marcos 12-6.

The Chargers swept in doubles and lost only 14 games. I was proud of how the pairs stayed calm, focused and adapted to different playing styles of the opponents. Their hard work showed on the courts. Mason Casady improved his doubles’ record to 20-1 (14-1 with Joshua Wang).

Our featured match came in singles, where we all saw the Titan duel between Patrick Corpuz and Luca Ferrari. That long set went to a tiebreaker that went Ferrari’s way (9-7). In addition, Caleb Franzen and Quinn Hensley won a set each in singles.

The last set of the day was between Sanad Shabbar and Zach Borodofsky, and that proved quite entertaining. Both played energetic tennis, had long rallies and covered every inch of the court. In the end, Shabbar was overjoyed by his win.

All in all, we saw camaraderie between the teams and the coaches. There was a good crowd of support for both teams.

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!
