2015 Women’s Season Preview: #4 Johns Hopkins

Shout-out to all the Women’s writers for getting their previews out before mine!  I’m looking to pay attention to all the details in my first preview, because the Women’s landscape is a notoriously tough audience.  Wink, wink.  I’ll admit that I am doing this preview after my Men’s Emory preview, so hopefully I can keep…

2015 Season Preview: #6 Emory Eagles

While my fellow writers have been churning out previews, I have simply been milling around the DIII world waiting for my next preview.  Luckily for all of you, we have begun our Women’s previews and I will be writing another preview tomorrow on the women’s side.  So much for delegating, eh?  Anyways, it’s my pleasure…

Rapid Reaction: Pool C Changes

If any of you have been following the writers on twitter today, something huge came out of the ITA convention of all things DIII tennis.  While I was out galavanting through the streets of who knows where in a santa costume, crazy things went down in the DIII world.  As of right now, Pool C…

2015 Season Preview: #9 Carnegie Mellon Tartans

Not gonna lie, it feels good to be in the ASouth.  I don’t have too many previews to do (4, to be exact), I have a few national title contenders, and I get some time off to do cool things like write for Tennis Recruiting.  That’s not a bad deal at all.  Whether you like…

2015 Season Preview: #15 Mary Washington

It’s all about being different.  It’s all about making your own path.  That’s exactly what I’m going to do with my season previews this year.  Will I have an overview and lineup analysis for the players?  Absolutely I will.  But let’s spice things up a little in the ASouth, especially because I have only 4…

Amherst Rolls the A-South: A Weekend in Review

What a great weekend! I slept late, ate poorly, got sporadic results from the Bates Invitational (more on that tomorrow), and took D3AS down from his Fantasy Football pedestal (Kendall Wright…lol). But perhaps most importantly, the Amherst Jeffs reminded the rest of the country just who the defending national champions are. Amherst, who the writers…
