Dos Pueblos Dominates in First-Round Play

Chargers vanquish Crespi, host top-seeded University at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Breezy conditions did not thwart Dos Pueblos in its CIF first-round action against the well-mannered and likeable Crespi Celts on Thursday. Despite missing two injured starters, the Chargers played well and smart.

Dos Pueblos (12-9) took eight of nine sets in doubles and six sets in singles against Crespi (6-10). In singles, Sasha Gryaznov won his three sets handily without dropping a game. Christian Edstrom and Richard Cheng played some long sets and won three sets between them. In doubles, newly formed partners Robert Kim and Malcolm Sutton took two sets, one of which went to a tiebreaker, and Isaiah Lin swept his three sets with the two partners he had.

Up next for the Chargers is the Division I’s No. 1 team, University, at home at 2 p.m. Saturday. A Friday coin flip gave Dos Pueblos the home-court advantage.

Go Chargers!

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!
