Dos Pueblos Boys’ Tennis Team the Co-Champions of Channel League

The journey has taken 39 years, and Dos Pueblos High School boys' tennis team is now the co-champions of the Channel League with Santa Barbara.

The Chargers beat Ventura on Tuesday, 17-1.

As Patrick Corpuz did in the first match against Santa Barbara, he did likewise with Ventura and took the 10th set.

The team remained subdued as we watched the remaining matches and afterward. We have one more match on the schedule — a non-league match away at Westlake on Wednesday.

I am proud of this team for its incredible efforts over time, and especially this season, and appreciate its immense trust. It took all of us to get here. As John Wooden said, "Little things make the big things happen."

In singles, we took eight of nine sets. In doubles we swept. Also, Mason Casady and Joshua Wang improved to 44-1.

Sportsmanship was quite evident. Support went both ways. At the end, we shook hands and shared cookies.

Dos Pueblos improves to 16-2 overall and 7-1 in Channel League.
