Dos Pueblos Boys’ Tennis Team Stays Undefeated with Win Over San Marcos

Under warm and quite breezy conditions Tuesday, plus sneezy with allergies, the Dos Pueblos Chargers battled the San Marcos Royals in a tight boys' tennis contest at home and won 14-4.

In singles, Patrick Corpuz came the closest in even touching Kento Perera in falling 5-7. Nonetheless, Patrick, Miles Baldwin and Quinn Hensley took the other six sets handily.

In doubles, we started off a little slowly on some courts, then settled down after that. We snagged eight of nine sets in doubles. Mason Casady and Joshua Wang swept along with Greg Steigerwald and Andrew Tufenkian, who recovered from deficits to sweep. Noah Gluschankoff and Ankush Khemani took the last two sets in doubles.

I am definitely proud of the focus and perseverance of our players. We appreciate the sportsmanship, plus the numerous spectators who came to cheer for the teams.

The Chargers improved to 7-0 overall and 3-0 in Channel League. Way to go, Chargers!

We host Arroyo Grande on Wednesday.

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!
