Dos Pueblos’ Cheng, Gryaznov and Santa Barbara’s Diaz, Nguyen Advance in Channel League Tournament

Chargers acquit themselves but just two earn place in round two.

Dos Pueblos played through the intense heat at Ventura High on Monday, figuratively and literally. With temperatures in the mid-80s and the heightened pressures of the single-elimination Channel League tournament, Sasha Gryaznov and Kevin Cheng advanced to the semifinal round and will head to the Pierpont Inn for their matches at noon Tuesday.

Christian Edstrom battled hard in three tough sets and lost. All of the Chargers left it on the court.

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!
