Some really good tennis today. Barry beat Concordia relatively routinely 5-0. Concordia played pretty well, but wasn't strong enough to push Barry too much.

In the other semi-final, Armstrong Atlantic was tested big time by West Florida. AA won at #1 and #3 doubles and West Fla won fairly handily at #2 doubles. In singles play, West Florida won in straight sets at #5. Shortly after, Armstrong took #6 in straights. Armstrong took the first set on courts 1 through 3 and West Fla won the first at #4.

On #2, the nation's #1 player Georgi Rumenov won in straight sets on a very controversial umpire overrule on match point. After the match, the player and the coach were literally screaming at the umpire and the player came pretty close to touching the ump with his fingers about 2" from the umpire's nose.

#'s 1, 3 and 4 all split sets. Eventually, Armstrong won deep in the 3rd at #3 (both players were cramping) to win the overall match 5-2. The overall match started at 9:15 and didn't get over until about 1:45 p.m.
