    In the regular season finale in Des Moines Drake has eanred the doubles point to take a 1-0 lead. The Shocks won the #2 doubles 6-3 with Drake taking the #3 doubles 6-4. The point was settled with a 7-6 tiebreaker win by Drake in he #1 doubles.

    The Shocks now have the difficult task of winning 4 of the 6 singles matches in order to win the match. Early on it is not looking very good.

    Drake wins the the number #2, #5 and #3 singles to close out the Shocks 4-0 as the Shocks 7-match road winning streak comes to an end.

    Next up: AAC Championships

        The #4 seed Shockers lost their quarterfinal match to #5 seed USF today 3-4 and their season comes to an end. After a 1-5 start they finished 14-10 with today's loss. This was a Shockeer team that played quite a few (10) matches that ended in a 4-3 score going 5-5 in those matches.

        Today's match was may have been lost in the #2 doubles where USF came back from a 2-5 deficit to win 7-5 to clinch the doubles point for USF. Hard to say for sure because the Shocks were leading 5-4 in #3 doubles when USF clinched the point and may or may not have won that one.

        The Shock lose only 1 senior, Miroslav Herzan, from this year's team Herzan was 13-14 in singles play and 17-11 in doubles play this year.

          Moved to a thread that is, hopefully, at least remotely related to the topic of the posting.

            A clear sign that I should probably retire from posting on Shockernet. Perhaps at the end of the 2018-19 season.
