Barry came out of the gates hot. After heading into singles play trailing 2-1 in both the quarterfinals and semifinals, the Bucs didn’t leave anything to chance, sweeping through doubles with Sonja Larsen/ Verena Schmid and Zuza Maciejewska/Carolin Schmidt winning in dominant 8-3 fashion. West Florida was one day removed from an unthinkable comeback, rallying from a 4-1 deficit to Hawaii Pacific to advance to its first finals since 2007. The Argos would have to do it again to make program history with its first national title ever.

West Florida never got the chance. Verena Schmid came out on fire (6-2, 6-1) and played like the top-ranked player she is. So did Julie Razafindranaly (6-2, 6-2), who won the title-clinching match. The Bucs swept their way to the 2018 national championship.

Barry came into the Surprise Tennis & Racquet Complex the No. 1 seed and that is how it will leave. The Bucs win their second championship in as many years and their fourth since 2011. After a dominating Day 4 in the desert, Barry is the 2018 national champions.
