Swarthmore Invitational Report Cards

Intro: Just because it’s INDOORS WEEK (!!!!) doesn’t mean that we’ll be forgoing our non-Indoors-related DIII tennis coverage. There were some great matches this past weekend in Pennsylvania, as the middle of the Atlantic South started their seasons with a West region visitor crashing the party without bringing any In-n-Out with them. Rude. Box Scores:…

Swarthmore Invitational Preview

Last year, the Garnet made the trek out to Walla Walla and ended up on the wrong end of a 7-2 drubbing. This year, Whitman is bringing half their team and two juicy indirect wins with them across three time zones to play Swat, CNU, and Haverford. After benefitting from perhaps the biggest home court advantage…

WHEN: Yes, it has been two months since our last article. WHY: The team needed a break. We (surprisingly) actually did a lot of stuff this past…

ASouth ITA Mashup – Emory Dominates, Stories from UMW

So, I know I missed the Emory ITA preview.  First off, I know I keep calling it the Emory ITA preview even though it’s actually held at Sewanee, so shoutout to Sewanee for hosting this thing every year.  Y’all have some nice outside courts.  On a positive note, I didn’t miss the UMW ITA Preview…

The ASouth (Mary Wash) ITA Preview

Well, the blog team has come up big in my short absence from writing anything of worth these past two weeks after I gave a giant kickoff to start the season.  We still have plenty of things in the works and under construction, but that just means we’ll come back in the Spring with bigger…

We’re a day late on this, mostly because my colleagues have working behind the scenes to get some Elite 8 Previews for you all and I have been working at a Regional Recap (that sounds weird) for all of those small teams out there.  Additionally, we’ve been trying to come together for our annual “Superlatives…
