San Marcos rode a pair of talented freshmen to a 7-2 singles record on Thursday and went on to beat Santa Barbara 12-6 in a Channel League boys tennis match.

The Royals are 7-0 overall and 5-0 in league. Freshmen Masato Perera and Alex Chow went 3-0 at No. 1 and 2 singles, respectively.

"Masato Perera and Alex Chow have played well in singles this season," said Royals coach Jarrod Bradley. "They're experienced tournament players with strong groundstrokes and an evolving net game."

Taylor Kleine/Mason Lender were 3-0 in No. 1 doubles for the Dons. Alexi Gill/Daniel Newton and Bryan Shott/Alex Stefanov went 2-1 for the Royals.

"The Dons moved Taylor Kleine to doubles this match and he responded with a sweep with Mason Lender," said Bradley. "We figured Coach Echt would move Taylor to doubles, so I responded by putting Daniel in doubles with Alexi. League matches can be somewhat of a chess match with slight adjustments. We just couldn't get into a rhythm against Taylor and Mason. They served exceptionally well."

San Marcos travels to San Luis Obispo on Monday and hosts Dos Pueblos on Wednesday.

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!
