Shorthanded Laguna Falls in Tennis: Dos Pueblos Golfers Win

Laguna Blanca was without its top singles player and suffered a 10-8 boys tennis loss to Pacifica on Monday. It was the Owls' first setback of the season.

"Our doubles lineup came out flat in the first round, getting swept," said coach Trevor Thorpe. "In the second round, we rallied,  although we had leads on 2 of 3 doubles courts in the final round, we weren't able to eek out another set."

Alex Furukawa and Andrew Tolles were both dominant in sweeping their singles sets. Kylan Tyng  fought extremely hard throughout and nearly pulled off a win against the Pacifica No. 3 player.

The Owls play Nordhoff on Tuesday.

"We'll look to make some doubles adjustments and will also be back to full strength," Thorpe said. "Sometimes it's better to get bucked off the horse a few times, as long as you're willing to get back on."


Dos Pueblos 396, Oxnard 412

Mikha Benedictus fired a 76 and three other Dos Pueblos shot in the 70s in the non-league win over Oxnard.

Mason Glinsky of Oxnard was the medalist with a 73

Dos Pueblos improve to 5-2.

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!
