Santa Barbara Tennis Beats Viewpoint, San Marcos Falls at AG; Dos Pueblos Splits Swim Meet

Santa Barbara High swept all nine doubles sets and Viewpont, 12-6, in a non-league boys tennis match on Wednesday.

"Viewpoint is a solid team with some outstanding players and I was impressed with how our team was ready to play from the opening game," Santa Barbara coach Greg Tebbe said. "It is not easy to win every doubles match, especially against a team with the talent of Viewpoint."

The duo of Logan Lender / Harry DeBoer were dominant as they won 18 of the 20 games they played. Noah Ostovany and Taylor Kleine teamed up for the first time this season and played well as they pulled out a tiebreaker in their second match.  Taggart Mills and Tyler Greenwald continued with their consistent doubles play, winning 18 or 22 games.

In singles, Jackson Powell and Spencer Ekola held their own against a strong lineup of Viewpoint players and won 3 out of their 5 matches.  

The Dons (5-1) open Channel League play next week with matches against Buena, San Marcos, and Dos Pueblos.

Arroyo Grande 10, San Marcos 8

The Royals (3-1) lost a close match to the Eagles (5-1) on the road.

After a 3-3 first round, the Royals doubles teams were swept in the second round and San Marcos fell behind 7-5. Arroyo Grande held on with a 3-3 third round on the strength of their doubles.

"Arroyo Grande returned eight players from last year and it showed today," coach Jarrod Bradley said. "They were the aggressors in doubles at the net and more consistent cross-court. Our team is young and we hope to get to where they are soon."

In singles, Kento Perera and Dominik Stefanov swept easily losing only five total games all day.

"Kento and Dominic have been dominant this season. AG's lefty Andrew Arcangel hit flat hard shots but they both adjusted after a slow start to win 6-2," said Bradley

In doubles, Dan Coulson and Jimmy Wimbish won 2 of 3 by scores of 4-6, 6-4, 6-1.

"Dan and Jimmy were consistent all day long. They had great cross-court groundstrokes and finished easy volleys to the open 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!
