Saturday Recap

Ok, a lot happened today, and I don’t have a lot of time, so I’m just gonna write a few sentences about each match, and you guys can fill in the rest #21 Swarthmore def. Vassar 5-4  Vassar won two out of three of the doubles, and actually won 4 out of 6 first sets,…

Tuesday-Wednesday Wrap up

Williams completed their California sweep today with a 5-4 win over Cal Lu. The box score makes it look like the least dramatic 2-4 comeback of all time, as they won their four singles matches without dropping more than 4 games in a set. Though they entered the trip with the #3 national ranking, not…

Regional POW: March 18-25

Atlantic South Warren Elgort (Johns Hopkins) Hopkins lost twice last week, but that didn’t stop Elgort from picking up a few big wins. In doubles, he teamed with Jacob Barnaby to post an 8-5 victory over Emory’s #1 team of Goodwin/Humphreys. He followed that up with a straight sets win over Ian Wagner at #5…

Weekly Preview: March 26th-April 2nd

Sunday Recap

#12 Trinity (TX) def. UT-Tyler 7-2 Looks like Trinity pulled Frey and DelaFuente after sweeping the doubles, so this match wasn’t really as close as the box score indicates. The only significant part of this match is that Straus still isn’t in the lineup for the Tigers. Bummer. #21 Carnegie Mellon def. #16 Mary Washington…

Pool C is Officially a Mess

I was going to title my weekly column “10 Things We’ve Learned This Year.” Then I saw an interesting result, Bates d. Johns Hopkins 7-2, and I realized that we haven’t learned anything besides Amherst, Emory and Williams are better than everyone else. Given Carnegie Mellon’s win against NC Wesleyan and Bates win over Hopkins…

Regional POW: March 11-17

Atlantic South Chris Goodwin (Emory) The Eagles had to be happy to see him back in the singles lineup. He went 6-0 last week in matches against Cal Lu, Skidmore, and Kenyon, winning comfortably in all of his singles matches, and teaming with Dillon Pottish to help Emory avoid the doubles sweep against Kenyon. Now,…
