Santa Barbara Tennis Clinches CIF Playoff Spot

Santa Barbara High clinched a CIF boys tennis playoff spot with an 11-7 victory over Ventura in the Channel League regular-season finale on Wednesday.

The Dons finished third in league with a 4-4 record (8-10 overall). They'll play in the Division 1 playoffs.

Santa Barbara's doubles dominated the day, winning eight of nine sets. The teams of Taylor Kleine / Jonas Juhl and Mason Lender /Mike Chung both went 3-0. In singles, Noah Ostovany went 2-1.

"Our team was fired up for this match and we came out strong in the first round as we won five out of the first six matches," Dons coach Greg Tebbe said. "We were up 9-3 after the second round which pretty much clinched it at that point."

Ostovany and Max Mendoza will compete in the Ojai Invitational on Thursday and Friday.

The Channel League individual tournament for singles and doubles starts Monday.

SB Singles:
Noah Ostovany 2-1
Andrea Borromini 1-1
Mike Kelly 0-2

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!
