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…

Washington and Lee University Coach: David Detwiler Location: Lexington, VA Preseason ranking: #34   Washington and Lee University, located in Virginia, has been sitting at the 4 or 5 slot in the Atlantic South for the past few years.

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: The University of the South

Sewanee – The University of the South Coach: John Shackelford Location: Sewanee, TN Preseason ranking: Unranked, #7 regional For my next regional season preview, we head down south for, naturally, The University of the South!

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…

Not-So Rapid Reaction: Amherst/Hop and Match Preview Herst/CMU

If you didn’t know, Hopkins played Amherst today in a battle of potential top 5 and most definitely top 10 teams in the upcoming year.  The match was played on the new Johns Hopkins courts, which is a great way to bring in the season and the new complex.  Thing is, there were no scorecards. …

Fall Nationals – A Joint Preview

Fall ITA Nationals technically start in 40 minutes with the play-in matchup of Hewlin (Whitman) and Krull (Trinity TX), so this preview kind of needs to go out.  I’m getting real nervous here writing this paragraph because I’m scared the commenters will behead me and burn me at the stake if this goes out at…

ASouth ITA Recap – Emory & UMW Regions

Last one to post previews, probably the last one to post a recap.  It’s ASouth here as always, looking to educate the masses on everything that goes on in the most entertaining region in the nation.  Not sure if I believe that, but let’s just say I do for now.  In this post, I’ll actually…
