Laguna Blanca Loses Tennis Opener to Orcutt Academy

Juniors Kai Nakamura and Kevin Khodabandehlou won the only matches for Laguna Blanca in a 7-2 boys tennis loss to Orcutt Academy at Hancock College on Friday.

The dual match was played in a college format, with six singles matches and three doubles.

"Considering it was our first match of the season and we only learned of the match format a few minutes before play began, I’ve got to be happy about the way we played today," coach Trevor Thorpe said. "We’ve got a lot to work on, but the effort was there and despite only having had the chance to practice a few times, I can already see the team starting to come together."

Laguna Blanca opens Tri-Valley League play on Tuesday against the Thacher School in Ojai at 3:30pm.

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!
