Great Final Curtain Call for Brent Herring as he exits the 4.0 realm of tennis!!!!

Brent should have been in 4.5 already. It is a shame that the USTA doesn't do a better job of putting players where they belong especially after a player like him has won over 85% of his 4.0 matches and has went to 3 straight Sectionals....bring the verifiers back in some capacity.

Little Rock will soon be naming streets and their children after these guys!

I hope they do name children and streets after them! Everyone gripes that no teams from Arkansas make it to sectionals and now we have a team come in second in NATIONALS! Way to go guys!
Know what the streets of the guys who wished they were one of you will be named?

I agree, this team shows that you can play by the rules, field a fair team and be rewarded by going to Nationals. The 4.5 teams can learn something from these guys. It is called "KHARMA". Lie, steal, and cheat and KHARMA will bite you in the ass everytime.

just think, had robinson's team gotten by archer's team without sawyer, they might be national champs.

that is assuming robinsons team is mentally tough to win 9 matches in a row against State /Regional Champions. i noticed how many 3-2 wins archers team had without sawyer, do you really think robinsons team had the mental toughness to duplicate that?
