Sports: A Noozhawk Partnership with Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table, The Lab, and American Riviera Bank

San Marcos Tennis Storms Past San Luis Obispo

San Marcos beat the rain and San Luis Obispo, 13-5, in a non-league boys tennis match at the John Stoney Courts on Friday.

"With a front approaching, we stormed to a 5-1 lead after the first round," said San Marcos coach Jarrod Bradley. "We came out with good energy all around and it showed in our play."

Kento Perera improved to 17-0 with three wins in singles and the Royals' No. 1 doubles team of Dan Coulson and Alexi Gill raised its record to 16-2 with a 6-3, 6-0, 6-1 sweep.

"Dan and Alexi have worked hard to place their serves around the box and it has paid off,"  Bradley said. "They win so may easy points on their serves and set up easy volleys. They're a fun team to watch."

The new No. 2 doubles team of Bryan Shott and Jimmy Wimbish swept their sets 6-2, 6-2, 7-5.

"Bryan and Jimmy brought amazing energy and moved around the court naturally together. They won a number of points after their opponents volleyed because they hustled after the ball and made them play one more point," said Bradley.

The Royals (6-2) travel to Valencia on Monday.

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!
