Chicago ITA Recap: Kalamazoo

Two articles in two weeks?!? What is wrong with me? I have already been told by the Headmaster that I can’t post anymore because that’s stepping on the NewD3Central’s work.

Van Zee’s Vault: Podcast with Coach Frank Barnes about Pool B

It was quite a weekend with exciting UAA and NESCAC results. It seems the #AVZBoost is alive and well which should be enough motivation for any coach to want to jump on a podcast with me. I am slowly getting through the list of volunteers, but sadly I doubt I will get to you all…
