Santa Barbara Tennis Steps Up to Hand San Marcos 13-5 Defeat

Kento Perera of San Marcos remained undefeated in Channel League play but it wasn't enough for the Royals, as Santa Barbara took eight of nine doubles points en route to a 13-5 tennis victory on Wednesday at San Marcos.

"There was high quality tennis played by both teams," Santa Barbara coach Greg Tebbe said. "It is always an extra challenge to play on the road and I was pleased with how our team got stronger as the match progressed."

The teams of Taggart Mills-Tyler Greenwald and Logan Lender-Harry deBoer swept their three sets, while Noah Ostovany-Taylor Kleine went 2-1.

Spencer Ekola and Jackson Powell each went 2-1 in singles, with their lone losses coming against Perera, the two-time defending league champion.

Tebbe said the match was good preparations for his Dons, who are 2-0 in league and 7-1 overall. San Marcos is 1-1 in league.

"We have some very tough matches coming up and today's match will help to prepare for the upcoming challenge," Tebbe said.

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!
