San Marcos Tennis Captures Third Straight League Title

San Marcos earned a share of the Channel League girls tennis title on Thursday with an 18-0 rout of Buena in the final league match between the two schools.

It is the third straight league title for the Royals and the second year they've shared it with Dos Pueblos. Both teams finished with 7-1 records.

"These girls just kept improving their fitness and their tennis game as the season went on," said Royals coach Andrea Rifkin. "Because of their fitness, we had very few injuries to work around, something that really helped us bring home this title for the third consecutive year.  I'm very proud of how well they performed."

The doubles team Kelly Coulson and Sam DeAlba improved to 46-0 for the season and "the unflappable" Yuka Perara finished 8-0 oin league play.

The doubles teams of  Maura Mannix/Savana Mata and Sam Wiener/Ava Castanha dominated as did singles players Fiona Kinsella and Sam Forster.

Next week the Channel League will gear up for individual singles and doubles championships at Dos Pueblos.

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!
