Gauchos Off to Hot Start at UCSB Classic

The UCSB men got off to a great start today at the UCSB Classic winning 5 of 6 singles matches and 2 of 3 doubles contests.

Senior captain Morgan Mays, junior Cody Rakela and sophomore Nicolas Moreno de Alboran all advanced to the quarter-finals of the A Flight singles tournament with wins over David Goulak (UC Davis), Ben Goldberg (UCLA) and Youssef Hassan (Fresno State) respectively. 

Senior Teague Hamilton and junior Chase Masciorini battled their way to victory in B Flight singles play downing Alex Bourgeios (LMU) and Ross Watson (Pacific) respectively. 

The only Gaucho casualty was freshman Kristian Prior in C Flight play, but he did put up a "W" in B Flight doubles action partnering Chase to a win over the Cal Poly Mustang's Cardiff/Enander pairing.

Tomorrow's play will begin with doubles at all three campus tennis facilities at 9am and be followed by two rounds of singles competition.

Feature matches at the Rec Cen courts (off Mesa Road) include Nicolas Moreno vs. Maxim Cressy of UCLA, Morgan Mays vs. Miguel Diaz (who defeated Bjorn Hoffmann of Cal 7-6 in the third today) and Cody Rakela vs. Eli Whittle of UC Davis (who upset top seeded Simon Stevens of Oregon in first round action).

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!
