Santa Barbara Tennis Wins Season Opener Against Viewpoint

Solid play from No. 1 singles player Taylor Kleine led the Santa Barbara High boys tennis team to a 12-6 season-opening victory against visiting Viewpoint on Tuesday.

Kleine defeated Viewpoint baseline hitter Sky Morano in the opening set of the match.

"Many of those points Taylor earned the net and volleyed intelligently," said coach Danny Echt. "Kleine ended up winning 6-3 in the opening set and he cruised pretty well the remainder of the match, taking all three sets."

Santa Barbara's No. 1 doubles team of Mason Lender and Lucas Pollero swept their three sets, leading the Dons to seven wins in nine sets.

"Mason Lender and Lucas Pollero kept points relatively short all day by playing a smart, attacking, high-pressure doubles style," said Echt.

"This was a very good first match for the Dons as Viewpoint was a well-matched opponent."

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!
