Santa Barbara KO’d from Tennis Playoffs by Corona del Mar

Santa Barbara High ran into a powerhouse tennis team in sixth-ranked Corona del Mar and was ousted in the second round of the CIF-SS Division 1 playoffs, 14-4, on Friday in Newport Beach.

"Corona Del Mar was just too strong," said Santa Barbara coach Greg Tebbe.

Corona del Mar won 8 of 9 singles points and 6 of 9 doubles points.

"We lost a couple of tiebreakers, so we had our chances to make the score much closer," Tebbe said. "Our guys competed well just as they have done all season. It is never fun to lose your last match but our guys earned the opportunity to play one of the top teams in Southern California and it is a great experience to go head to head against top players."

The Dons finish the season with a 14-6 record. Three of their players still will be competing in the CIF individual tournament later this month. Spencer Ekola will compete in the singles and Jackson Powell and Logan Lender in doubles.

Jackson Powell 1-2
Taylor Kleine 0-3
Mike Kelly 0-3
Spencer Ekola / Logan Lender 1-2
Taggart Mills / Harry DeBoer 1-2
Tyler Greenwald / Noah Ostovany 1-2

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!
