WEEKEND PREVIEW: 3/24-3/26

WEEKEND PREVIEW: 3/24-3/26 Happy weekend, boys and girls. Instead of posting six or seven short previews throughout the day, we decided it would be easier for everybody if we condensed all the top-30 ranked matches into one larger weekend preview.

2017 Power Rankings, 3/23

It’s Thursday, and that means Power Rankings. While the top 20 was fairly silent with no big upsets the past week, we did have some movement down below that I am sure our regional writers and readers are more than excited about. Also, we just released AVZ’s first podcast ever, featuring an interview with #8…

A quick look at Tufts’ spring break

Psssst, hey you over there, remember Tufts? Yeah, Tufts. The team that both lost to MIT and beat Bowdoin in the span of about 48 hours at the end of last year? Well they’re playing tennis again for the first time in 2017. I know right, who knew! Luckily we’ve got you covered, and I’m here…

Even though Kalamazoo is now a top 20 team and firmly into D3Midwest’s territory, I will happily keep writing about them until someone tells me to stop.  They’re a team with a rich history, a stud at the top of their lineup, unique home courts, and also happen to be perhaps the most improved team…

THE MAIN EVENT: #1 Emory vs. #7 Amherst

AS: Welcome to the main event, peeps. This match is actually huge. Why? Because if Amherst wins, we can probably officially say that the NESCAC is going to get more Pool C spots than the UAA this year. Now, that might happen anyways because Middlebury plays Emory later on this year, but I feel like…
