The Santa Barbara boys tennis team sealed its claim to the Channel League championship with a 15-3 win over Dos Pueblos on Tuesday.

“It was another great team effort,” coach Greg Tebbe said. “Our guys were excited to be playing for the Channel League title against a very good Dos Pueblos team. I was extremely happy with how we competed and our sportsmanship throughout the match.”

The Dons’ doubles dominated and none of the three pairs dropped a set.

In the singles, Graham Massen and Ryan Chung also went undefeated.

Santa Barbara finished its Channel League season with a perfect 8-0 record.

Dos Pueblos also had a very successful league campaign, going 6-2 with its only two losses coming against the Dons.

“I am proud of our team’s performance. I appreciate its display of versatility, heart, drive,  and support today,” Chargers coach Liz Frech said.

The Dons, who are ranked No. 5 in CIF Division I, will face Harvard-Westlake tomorrow at home. Harvard-Westlake is ranked third in CIF Division I.
