Spring Break Preview: Gustavus

As promised here is my Spring break preview of the Gusties. Between them, Case, and Kenyon, they are the only Central teams that have been able to make any noise on the larger stage thus far. I will get to my thoughts on every Central team in my upcoming “State of the Central” article, but…

Weekend Preview – Big ASouth Weekend

It’s been a while since I did any actual previews, simply because I hate doing the regular preview format and also because my colleagues are really awesome.  However, we have a big weekend in ASouth this weekend, surprisingly, and it’s my non-paying job to get these matches some love.  This weekend we have Swarthmore, Washington…

March 18-22nd Preview

Monday the 18th #13 Whitman vs. #26 Whittier We can call this one the “Battle of Whits” if we’re feeling punny.

Stag-Hen Day 1

First Round #1 Emory vs. #8 Swarthmore Swarthmore is a team that just lost to Whittier and got destroyed by Redlands. They aren’t about to beat the defending national champions unless they have some fairy dust left over from that CMS upset. Unfortunately, I think they’re on P-P’s half of the draw so they’re not…
