Tennis, did you go today? Tried to follow but the site showed a couple of different things. I think we won but not sure. Nothing on twitter either.

Lost 1-6 to Penn. Uff da. Glad I was in Des Moines rather than watching that one!

Tough non-conference schedule definitely seemed to catch up with them. only 11–13 in the non-conference. 6–0 in the Summit (17–13 overall). Conference tournament is at Denver, only the top four teams so Drake plays Oral Roberts and then Denver/Valpo.

Should beat Oral Roberts, should beat Denver (but that'll be close, especially on their high elevation home court). If they win the Summit tourney, I have a feeling we'll get a pretty crummy seed and play a damn good team first round.

Agree Tennis.  The final against Denver out there will be pretty tough.  We will definitely be the 4 seed in pretty much whatever bracket we make out of 4.  Still a pretty good season if we win the conference tourney considering we are playing 2 guys who thought they would be redshirting.  Still have some nice wins and making the tournament again is always good.

Beat Valpo in a very tight match 4-1 to win another conference championship, of course 1st in the Summit. Congrats Dogs!

Dogs playing very competitively on courts 2-5. Will need to win all of those courts but at this point it’s a possibility.

Not looking good at this point. Down 3-2 in matches and court 4 is down 5-1 in the decisive 3rd set. The other match just starting  3rd set

If you told me this time last year that the 2018 team would have a first round NCAA exit and that record... I'd be a bit let down. But given those random exits from Bayo and Ben Stride and Calum being hurt, well then I guess its not too bad of a season. 
I think the team next year will be pretty similar to this year, with the young guys that were thrown in there getting better.

So tennis are Bayo and Ben coming back next year? Bayo was a really good doubles player, never really developed much in singles.

I believe they quit the team and won't be back. Don't know why or anything, so don't take any of that as fact. Rumors, wee! They were on the roster online, but that may be just Drake folks not updating the site. Hard to keep tabs on the team as much as I used to be, but I know that Calum was at matches so I assume his was just injury and he may be back. I'll try to do some digging to figure out more. Just weird stuff.

Nobody moving from the ITA Regionals into the ITA nationals for singles. Vinny did alright and got to the sweet 16, everyone else lost early.
In doubles, Vinny and Barny got to the doubles final, but lost to Oklahoma State. 

Other guys mostly beat folks they should (Omaha, sometimes Nebraska) and lost to others (OU, Minnesota, etc.)
