Actually, S. Smith played with Eller.  They did reasonably well,
but I can't remember much more than that.  Smith looked slow,
and weak.  He wasn't jumping well, or moving like I remember, but
he still made some great plays.

Just in case anyone doesn't know, Stoklos/Johnson won coming from
the loser's backet.  There was no double final because of TV.
They beat Lewis, and Boullion, building from a 9-0 lead.  Lewis
and Boullion was the team that sent them to the loser's bracket.
Stoklos came out pumped for the final, and played extremely well
until 9-0.  Johnson played great defense as usual, but his hitting
was a little off most of the weekend.  For the final, he was
really trying to hit the ball hard.

Other notes:  Ack played extremely well, even digging a few balls,
and setting well for a big guy.  He and Steffes just didn't click
as far as I'm concerned.

As for the tournament in general, there were a lot of people there
who didn't know much about volleyball or the teams, but I tried to
help them out as much as I could.  The sponsership thing is getting
a little old, but if that is what it takes to pay the big money...

As for seats, I had great ones on Friday and Saturday... you just
have to know where the good matches are going to be.  I don't like
Center Court; the freebie seats are two far away.

I only got to watch his televised game on saturday, but from what I hear
Ack is one of the best setters (along with Stoklos) on the beach.  So my guess
is that he wasn't just "setting well for a big guy", but probably setting well
altogether.

The general consensus was that Ack was the best setter of the tournament,
if you look at him, you'll realize that he sets like a guy who's
partner get's all the serves.  After years of that, you get
to be a pretty good setter.  What's funny is that he dumped his
partner to play with Steffes, a got pay-back big time.

Who's going to be playing with who next week ??????

Go Stokie, Go Fro -

Ack and Steffes were practicing at State today, so I would presume that
they will play together. Smith said his knee feels good, flexibility is
good, but strenght is not there. He thought it would come back though.
