This Week in SCIAC: Part Whatever

The Recap Last week’s 4-match slate ended up being anticlimactic with the exception of the CLU/Cruz match, so I’ll keep these recaps quick. #20 Redlands def. #22 Whittier 8-1 Whittier just can’t seem to find its mojo right now, and I have to see that I think their team chemistry is a little messed up.…

This Week In SCIAC: Part 3 (ft. Trinity, Tyler, Cruz, Ke$ha)

Well, we’ve got a host of great West region matches this weekend as we work our way into the home stretch. I think I’ve got them all on this list, but if you know of another that should be previewed, please let me know in the comments, and I’ll try to preview it before it…

A Very SCIAC Recap: April 4-6

I’d like to start off this recap by apologizing to all of my adoring fans. I missed two huge matches this weekend, and, quite frankly, that’s Bush League. This isn’t a snarky D3West non-apology; this is an actual apology. Anyways, to the recaps. P-P def. Redlands 6-3 This was a great win for the Hens…

This Week In SCIAC: Part 2

Well, it’s Wednesday night, and I’m feeling a little wacky, so get ready for some shenanigans. We have another two matches between ranked teams this week, but this time, they’re just gonna play them on Friday, so I can enjoy my weekend. As always, we’ll start with the Top Stags and move on to the…

The Spring Break Epilogues: UC Santa Cruz

The Slugs made their annual pilgrimage to So Cal last week, and came away with two wins and three losses. That would be a good thing if they had scheduled five nationally ranked teams, but they only had three, and you can guess which three matches they lost. The two wins over Oxy and Chapman…

This Week in SCIAC: Part 1

With West region Spring Breaks officially over, it’s that time of the season when the California teams shift gears into conference play. It’s no mystery who will be winning the SCIAC this year, but there are several important matches being played in terms of national rankings, Pool C standing, and individual competition. It’s always fun…

State of the Region Address: West Region

With the first regional rankings of the Spring season coming out this week, I think it’s time for the first “State of the Region Address” of the year. After last night’s result, it’s officially “The Year of the 5-4″ in the West region. (Ready for some illuminati crap? 5+4+4 = 13, 5+4+5 = 14. It’s…

Minipreview: UCSC vs. Redlands

I’m going to devote more attention to the big SCIAC matches this weekend, but since I have a few moments right now, I thought I’d write a separate little ditty for a big West region matchup that has huge upset potential. People have sort of forgotten about the Slugs since they left SBWW, and that’s…

The Spring Break Epilogues: Whitman

This will be the last time we hear about the Squirrels until the national tournament, so I’ll try to get as squirrelly as I can with this recap. It was a bit of an ambiguous Spring Break for Whitman, but it was definitely better than last year, and they have reason to be optimistic The…

The Spring Break Epilogue: UT-Tyler and Trinity (TX)

Spring break has come and gone for the Texas teams, and, after the next two days, we should have a firmly established hierarchy in the west region. Though we’ve had crazy matches so far, we haven’t had the sort of crazy results that give rankings committees headaches. Enough fluff, let’s get to the recaps. Trinity…
