NCAA Quarterfinal Preview: #7 Chicago vs #2 CMS

C

Tweet NCAA Quarterfinal Preview: #7 Chicago vs #2 CMS D3West: to everyone who is now doubting CMS because they got swept in doubles by Tyler, I’m going to leave this here. People are also talking about Chicago as if they discovered the secret ingredient to Chik-fil-A sauce when they beat GAC 5-2, but they haven’t…

This Week In West: Season Recaps and a Tribute to Seniors

Tweet West region DIII men’s tennis fans, we’ve had ourselves a week. UT-Tyler went 6-0 in doubles over the weekend, scored the mini-upset over Whitman, and nearly made DIII tennis history by being the lowest ranked team ever to make it to the Elite Eight. CMS proved their mettle. Trinity wasn’t able to take advantage…

This Week In West: The California Regional

Tweet As I mentioned in the POTW article, we played witness to a truly great match on Sunday that showed both CMS’ greatness and vulnerability. In the last month and a half, the Stags have gone down in doubles to P-P (twice), Redlands, Middlebury, and Williams. They may have won all of those matches, but…

This Week In West: The SCIAC Tournament

Southern_California_Intercollegiate_Athletic_Conference_logo

Tweet The SCIAC tournament has always been one of the best conference tournaments in the country. At times, the conference has had three or four teams in the top ten (much like the current UAA), and there are usually some major post-season implications in the final weekend before NCAA selections. One thing the SCIAC tournament…

This Week In West: Pomona-Pitzer vs. Redlands

bulldog-hen

Tweet Well gang, I picked a really bad month to start stacking up 80-90 hour work weeks, so this is going to be very brief. Last week, CMS turned the city of Ojai into their own personal playground, while the West region’s wayward suns all punched their tickets to the big dance. (Note: the West…

This Week In West: The Ojai

Tweet Last Week In West The last week in the West region was quite a bit more eventful than the week before it, as we got a Texas Triad and a good match between CMS and Redlands, but it could have been better if Emory had made the trip out to San Antonio like they…

This Week in West: The Wayward Sons

Tweet I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for Whitman, Trinity, and Tyler. Part of it is because they’re all basically building programs on an island. For a long time, Whitman’s closest ranked opponent was 850 miles away, and their second closest was another 300 miles or so. Trinity and Tyler have always…

This Week In West: CMS vs. Redlands and PP vs. UCSC

Cali-Tennis

Tweet Every year, for the month of March, the west region is the heart of the DIII tennis world. Most of the big-time schools use their Spring Breaks to head down to Claremont and play at least two out of CMS/Redlands/P-P, while picking up matches against whoever else they can along the way. Once the…

The Battle for Sixth Street!

Google images is just great

Tweet The time has finally come for CMS and PP to renew their cross-campus rivalry, and I could not be more excited. After suffering direct losses to Williams, CMU, Midd, Emory, and Amherst (coupled with Bowdoin’s win over CMS), Pomona-Pitzer likely does not have a way into the NCAA tournament through Pool C (which is…

This Week In West: Midterms

Tweet Since three of my more prominent West region teams just completed their spring breaks, I feel like this is an opportune time to hand out some report cards. Cruz is in the midst of their spring break, and the California teams all seem like they’re on a perpetual spring break (tennis-wise), so I’ll give…
