Boys tennis won against Thousand Oaks in a non-league match. Baseball lost a close game to Newbury Park. Spring sports starting this week include boys volleyball, softball, lacrosse, track and field, swim and dive, and boys golf.
Girls Soccer (Coach: Hugh Hollis):
Last Tuesday, Dos Pueblos lost to Cypress High 4-2 in the second round of CIF playoffs for Division 3. Cypress lead 2-1 at halftime, but DP’s Kiara Pickett scored by making a tough-angled shot into the far side of Cypress’ goal. DP also tied the game 3-3 later in the game, but it was waived because of an offsides call. Ady Willett scored DP’s first goal.
The girls are now done with their season.
Wrestling (Coach: Anthony Califano):
Last Friday and Saturday, DP senior Cameron Cox qualified for his first CIF State Meet by advancing to the semifinals round on Saturday in the 132-pound division. Cox was able to beat his first opponent 11-7 in the quarterfinals and battled one more in the semifinals, guaranteeing his spot in the State Meet in Bakersfield this weekend. He is DP’s first state qualifier since 2010.
“It’s good [to be moving on] since this is my first time going to State. It’s also cool that I’m the first DP wrestler to move on in four or five years. But I still have work to do and I don’t want to get too happy too soon,” said Cox.
Jeff Uyesaka and Jonathon Coronado, both of whom also competed last weekend, didn’t advance after Friday’s round but still ended their seasons as Channel League champions.
Boys Tennis (Coach: Liz Frech):
Last Thursday, the Chargers beat Thousand Oaks High 10-8 in a non-league match thanks to some strong doubles performances. Miles Baldwin/Vincent Villano and Mason Dochterman/Bryce Ambrose lead with 3-0 scores each, helping DP win seven of nine doubles sets. Patrick Corpuz also won all of his matches in singles, going 3-0 for the day.
“I think everyone played a solid game and everyone played well and hopefully we’ll get better. We lost a lot of seniors last year so it’s definitely a different team and different atmosphere, but we’ll play as best as we can in tennis,” said Dochterman.
This Thursday, the boys travel away to Campbell Hall in Weddington for a match starting at 3 p.m. Then on Friday, they stay home to play Westlake High at 2:30 p.m.
