Santa Barbara Splits Matches at Cal Tennis Classic

Santa Barbara High went 1-1 on the first day of the California Tennis Classic in Fresno.

The Dons lost their first match, 4-3, against a strong Homestead High from Cupertino. The match format was 4 singles matches and three doubles matches with each match worth one point.  Santa Barbara won two of the singles matches as Jackson Powell won his match 7-6, 0-6, 10-5 and Spencer Ekola won in three set sets,  6-4, 4-6, 10-8.  The Dons got a doubles win from Harry DeBoer and Tyler Greenwald, 6-3, 6-2.

The Dons dominated Clovis North 6-1. Harry DeBoer, Logan Lender, and Noah Ostovany were victorious in singles.  The Dons three doubles teams of Jackson Powell /Taylor Kleine, Spencer Ekola /Tyler Greenwald, and Mike Kelly/ Kai Wilkinson all won their matches.  

"This tournament is a great opportunity for our team to compete against some of the top teams in the state, bond together as a team, and get ready for Channel League play," Santa Barbara coach Greg Tebbe said. "We will continue to improve but I like what I see from our guys out on the court.  It is going to be an exciting season as we will be playing an extremely tough schedule over the next couple of months.  I am confident our team is ready for the challenge."

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!
