Tennis: Chargers Take Sting Out of Yellow Jackets

In borrowed shoes, Erica Cano owns the court as Dos Pueblos races to a 16-2 win over Oxnard.

Dos Pueblos’ girls’ tennis team was on fire Tuesday and nearly swept Oxnard in a 16-2 blowout. Every player did “leave it on the court,” as senior co-captain Melissa Dahl instructed, and they all ground out some tough, long sets, particularly against Oxnard’s No. 1 singles player, veteran Moira Hedberg, and No. 1 doubles Sonia Parik and GIna Vanderkaan.

Playing No. 1 singles, senior co-captain Erica Cano showed us all that even in shoes borrowed from me she could dispatch opponents. The Amys — Amy Logan and Amy Sagraves — didn’t drop a game in their three sets.

I am proud of this team; it went the distance in every set.

Dos Pueblos improved to 3-0 with the win, while Oxnard is now 0-1. Next up for Dos Pueblos is Thousand Oaks on Thursday.

Way to go Chargers!

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!
