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,…

Friday Recap and Weekend Preview: March 31- April 1

#12 Pomona-Pitzer def. #20 Whittier 7-2 This is about the result everyone was expecting. I think people need to lay off the one overzealous Whittier supporter who predicted top 10 for them. Everyone who actually follows D3 tennis knows that Whittier is probably more like a 22-27 range team this year, but that’s a huge…

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.

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…

Saturday Recap/ Sunday Preview

Saturday It was another busy day for D3 tennis, and in this season, that means there was another huge upset. #21 Carnegie Mellon def. #5 NCW 5-4 This match followed the script of a typical upset. CMU came out fired up and swept the doubles. NCW fought back in singles, but CMU was able to…
