Doubles Teams Rescue San Marcos Against San Luis Obispo

San Marcos won seven of nine doubles sets to squeak out a 10-8 non-league boys tennis win over San Luis Obispo on a blustery day at the John Stoney Courts on Friday.

The Royals' No. 1 team of Bryan Shott and Alex Stefano swept their three matches, 6-2, 7-5, 6-0, to pace the squad to the victory.

San Marcos (2-0) also got good performances from freshmen Alex Wilson and Sam Friedman. They each won two sets each with different partners. Wilson teamed with Ivar Bjork while Sam paired with Jimmy Wimbish.

"Our two and three doubles came up big for us today," coach Jarrod Bradley said. "Their energy was great and it paid off on the court."

In singles, Alexi Gilli gave SLO's No. 1 player Zach Hilty a tough time in the third round, falling 7-5.

"Alexi played his best tennis in the last set against Zach," Bradley said. "He hit great serves, came to net strategically, and hit heavy topspin deep in the court. It really could have gone either way."

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!
