San Marcos, Ventura Tennis Battle Stopped by Rain, Darkness

San Marcos and Ventura were unable to complete their boys tennis match on Friday because of a rain delay and darkness.

With two sets unfinished, the Cougars lead 9-7 in sets and 74-72 in games.

In the remaining sets, Dominik Stefanov and Noah Labor are locked at 4-4 (30-30) with Stefanov serving, while Masato Perera leads Hunter Lieja 3-2 with Hunter serving. If the Royals prevail in the remaining sets without tiebreakers they would win the match outright on games.

Bryan Shott and Alex Stefanov continued their stellar play, losing only to the Cougars' No. 1 doubles team of Max Cohen and Cody Rae Emory 7-6. The Royals won their other sets 6-2, and 6-0.

"I'm impressed with their improvement the past two weeks," coach Jarrod Bradley said. "Their on-court movement is amazing, closing off the net, and moving together while communicating. Their one loss today could have just as easily been a win with a point or two separating the two teams."

Perera prevailed in two close sets against Ty Cohen, 6-4, and Noah Labor, 7-5.

"Masato has shown incredible heart in battling through some tough sets today. When he's dictating points with his forehand and hitting a high percentage of first serve in, he is tough to beat," said Bradley

The Royals and Cougars will finish the match at an undetermined date in the future.

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!
