So Flight C and D have bid adieu to the regular season and Lifetime, BH-Pearlman, Greenhill and the Lakes qualified for the playoffs.
Flight C ended up as expected but Garland finished 2-5 which was a little unexpected and Eagles Landing never could get complete enough to make a run at the top but did make it interesting for a little while.
Flight D caught some flack but I think this was the best flight from top to bottom. Greenhill or the Lakes may not win the Fall DCC but they are battle tested from playing in this flight I assure you. Stonebridge after making the playoffs since the beginning of time at 4.0 has missed two season in a row now, they have to think of some new membership perks I think. TBar had tough finish losing out on tiebreakers and they probably lose Shannon Grant to 4.5 in a few weeks as well. I think they will be a force in the Spring because they seem to have no problem finding new players and have good numbers. As far as Brookhaven it seems their lack of singles play hurt them and their doubles teams are not quite the dominating force they seemed to be just about a year or so ago.
But enough about looking back there is some 4.0 tennis this week.
Flight A has the big match up between us and Springpark. Oh wait it doesn't mean anything anymore. We still hope to have fun match this Sunday. There are still two teams fighting it out in our flight, BH-Helterbrann and LB Houston. I like BH's chances but they are light at singles and that could hurt them if Canyon Creek brings their best players. LBH has JCC who has been spreading playing time around lately so LBH has a chance to post a big number. They will need a sweep to really put themselves in position at the very least a 4-1 win.
Flight B has HP and OC just needed any type of win to hold onto their spots at the top with Durdy Garland lurking in the shadows ready to take one of those spots if they falter. Don't see it happening since Bob and Don have got these teams back on track after one bad loss for each.
By this time next week we should know or have a good idea on seeding and hopefully we can see a schedule and then let the smack talk begin.
