For your viewing convenience… New England. Summary. Singles: Amherst is winning. Doubles: Williams is winning. Cue Bates fans, “What about us?” Northeast. This website is really hard to read, but man, that singles draw couldn’t have gone more to form. And that doubles draw really couldn’t have not done that in any way at all.…

ITA Regional Wrapup: Central

Singles 1. Adam Putterman was an absolute beast this weekend on the singles court. Winning the tournament without dropping a set? That’s incredibly impressive, especially when you consider that every single opponent he faced from the Round of 16 on was very good. Though his team underperformed compared to Kenyon, this is his second year…

ITA Regional Preview: Midwest

This region is basically the embodiment of the word “mediocre.” The region is far deeper than either the Texas or Northwest regions. As in, the best players from the “second tier” teams in the region have a reasonable chance of beating the lower players on Gustavus and Whitewater’s rosters, but at least with the NW…

ITA Regional Preview: Southeast

Last year, this tournament was like the Hopkins’ freshman class’ coming out party. Most everyone in the DIII community was pretty curious what 6 4-stars would do when they were unleashed on the DIII community. Unfortunately, Hopkins couldn’t get all of them into the draw, but those that got in made an impact. Joachim won…

ITA Regional Preview: Northeast

The fact that the regional tournaments get split up the way that they do is absolutely ridiculous. New England region: totally brutal. Northeast region: one of the worst in the country. How does that happen? Basically all of the teams in both regions are within driving distance of each other. But I live in a…
