Dos Pueblos Boys Open Tennis Season on the Upswing

Under cool conditions Tuesday, the Dos Pueblos High School boys' tennis team won their season opener against Oaks Christian, 12-6.

In singles, the DP Chargers (1-0) took only three sets from a deep singles lineup. Patrick Corpuz, recovering from a cold, fell behind in his second-round set against two-star recruit Daniel Sutman but fought his way back, one point at a time, to take the set at 7-5. Quinn Hensley also struggled in his second-round match vs. Zachary Denham but closed it at 6-4. Only Miles Baldwin breezed through his first round vs. Denham.

In doubles, Dos Pueblos swept, losing only four games to the Lions (0-1). Mason Casady and Andrew Tufenkian were the only pair who gave up no games in three rounds.

For this first match, we appreciated the immense support from spectators, who included parents, our JV team and community people. At the end, we shook hands and shared cookies.
