Quick Take on Pool C

Bracketology later this evening, but first my quick take on Pool C. As it stands right now… Williams, Bowdoin, Cal Lutheran, Pomona-Pitzer, Middlebury, Wash U, Redlands (vomit) Redlands is so undeserving of this spot it makes me sick (d3tennisguy is going to hate me). They haven’t done anything remotely impressive in over 2 months, yet…

Weekend Recap: April 28th-29th

This turned out to be a very busy weekend, chocked full of mild surprises and a few great individual performances in Ojai. Let’s start with the team stuff: Other News Coe College def. #29 Wisconsin-Whitewater 5-4 This match obviously flew below the radar, as nobody has every really heard of Coe College. Believe it or…

Weekend Preview-ish

Sorry, everybody. I meant to post about this weekend’s festivities, but I ran out of time yesterday. Wash U beat Carnegie Mellon in the UAA semifinal after getting swept in doubles (they really need to learn how to play doubles). Emory cruised through the whole tournament, pretty much as expected. Middlebury and Amherst are already…

UAA tournament preview

The UAA has taken a little bit of a hit this year with the momentary decline of Wash U, but they are still the 3rd best conference in the country (at least), and their conference tournament deserves a little special attention. As I’m sure we are all aware, the conference is extremely spread out, so,…

Tuesday, April 24th Writeup

#15 Bates def. #24 Trinity (CT) 6-3 This could have been a close match if the Bantams had managed to take #2 doubles, but they didn’t, and the Bobcats pretty much had the match won from there. Trinity completely exposed Bates’ lack of depth, dominating the last two matches, and coming close to victory at…

Sunday, April 22nd Recap

#16 Johns Hopkins def. #23 Mary Washington 7-2 This was probably the least dramatic of Sunday’s matches between ranked teams. The Blue Jays continued to make a mockery of their ranking by trouncing the Eagles. As usual, Hopkins dominated the singles competition pretty thoroughly, with their only loss coming in a 10-point tiebreaker at #1…

April 20-21 Recap

Friday #6 CMS def. #5 Cal Lutheran 6-3 This match literally went exactly as everyone predicted it. At this point in the season, we finally pretty much know where every team is strong and weak after the beginning of the season when teams showed what they were made of. Introductory comments aside, CMS’ lower lineup…
