POTW: 3/20-3/26

REGIONAL PLAYERS OF THE WEEK: 03/20-03/26 Monday means POTW, so here we go. If you missed it, check out the big articles: a mid-season review from the Guru and D3West’s State of the Region, giving major updates on the current season so far. Also, if you live under a rock (or never visit our homepage),…

State of the Region Address: West

Because the inaugural regional rankings are forthcoming this week, and most teams’ Spring Breaks are now completed, I thought it was a good time for a state of the region address. I’m gonna start by taking a dive into the mess of results that make up the individual qualifiers in both singles and doubles, and…

The Guru’s Brief Midseason Review

It sounds amazing, but we are just about half way through the 2017 season. I wrote some brief comments on each team and broke things into five categories. I tried to touch on just about everyone in the top 30 as well as a few other teams that have stuck out to me. Apologies if…

Regional Roundup – Spring Breaks Galore

Another week, another Regional Roundup.  I know I’m a little late this week, but my goal was to get this out before the Lewis & Clark and Pacific spring breaks began tomorrow.  Mission accomplished.  I have no time to dilly-dally so let’s get right into it.  First, let’s start with a Colby Mules spring break…

D3RegionalNEC’s Weekly Wrap-up and Weekend Preview

As the season rolls along, you’d think it would get easier to see how teams stack up. Well, I’m finding that to definitely NOT be the case, as more and more I’m seeing the classic “Team A beats Team B, Team B beats Team C, and Team C beats team A” scenario. Makes for difficult…

Slugs Go South: A UCSC Spring Break Preview

I’m going to add to the abundance of previews that have been released over the past couple days with a spring break preview for D3’s forgotten team, UC Santa Cruz. They currently hold a blog power ranking of #32 and an ITA ranking of….oh…obviously their scheduling is to blame :/. Santa Cruz has played 8…

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. If you want to read more about #10 Williams’ weekend (vs #4 Chicago, #11 Redlands,…

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…

Van Zee’s Vault: Spring Break Edition

I am coming off what might be the highlight of my blogging career after last night’s post of my first ever podcast. You can listen to it here http://www.division3tennis.com/van-zees-vault-first-podcast/ I couldn’t have picked a better guest in Coach Fried and I truly am a Wesleyan fan from here on out. I shouldn’t be too surprised…
