1.
often defined as stabbing, but the other less recognized definition is to make a bad pass while playing volleyball.
"shank" passes usually result from a hard serve or hit, they cant be controlled, therefore they bounce off the players arms and fly out of bounds, not to be retrieved.
"She had the hardest serve ever! I totally shanked the ball and we lost."
