Top-Ranked Peninsula Has Too Much Firepower for Santa Barbara

The level of tennis was high when Santa Barbara High and top-ranked Peninsula faced off on Wednesday at the Dons' courts.

Peninsula, however, had too much firepower and defeated the Dons, 13-5, in a non-league match.

"Peninsula is ranked No. 1 in CIF Division 1  and was just too strong for the Dons," Santa Barbara coach Greg Tebbe said. "There was high level tennis on every court and I am proud of how we competed against them.  We were not intimidated.  They were just a bit better than us."

Santa Barbara got strong play from two of its doubles teams. Jackson Powell-Logan Lender, and Taggart Mills-Tyler Greenwald each won two sets. Harry DeBoer won the lone singles sets for the Dons.

"Our doubles won 4 out of 9 sets and we narrowly lost a set 7-6, so we were basically even with them," Tebbe said. "Their singles was just too strong as Peninsula has three highly ranked players."

The tough week continues for the Dons (10-3) on Thursday as they play San Marcos in a Channel League match. Fifth-ranked Mira Costa visits on Saturday.

Santa Barbara box score
Harry DeBoer 1-2
Mike Chung 0-2
Spencer Ekola 0-3
Mike Kelly 0-1
Jackson Powell / Logan Lender 2-1
Taggart Mills / Tyler Greenwald 2-1
Taylor Kleine / Noah Ostovany 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!
