Santa Barbara, San Marcos Sew Up Doubles Play

Chargers' Kautz and Kim make second-round exit from Channel League tournament.

Under perfect weather conditions at Ventura High, the Channel League opened its doubles tournament Wednesday. Ventura head coach Joan Dodge is a phenomenal host and gave all of the players encouragement. Some of us coaches brought a lot food to share. The bagels and lox went fast as did the strawberries.

Dos Pueblos brought its three experienced doubles teams. Senior Joseph McDaniel and senior captain Robert Kim faced off with San Marcos’ Spencer Funk and Brian Pearson. After a slow start, the Chargers started to pick up energy, and then McDaniel fell trying to reach a ball. That was the end of that match. For the remainder of the tournament, his knee was on ice.

Seniors Ryan Zmolek and Isaiah Lin encountered the top San Marcos team of Ken Hasegawa and Zack Scott. They played close and tough in both sets but lost, 4-6, 3-6.

Senior captain Justin Kautz and junior John Kim sailed smoothly through their first-round match against Buena’s Tyler Espinoza and Michael Huang, and then met the tournament’s top-seeded team, Andrew Grant and Evan Teufel of Santa Barbara. Kautz and Kim battled hard against the fine-tuned Dons duo but fell, 1-6, 1-6.

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!
