Regional Players of the Week: March 31st-April 6th

REGIONAL PLAYERS OF THE WEEK: March 31st-April 6th This week we have one #2, one #3, one #4, and one #5. You go writers. This week we’re also delving further into our writers’ past, looking at their favorite cartoon characters. I believe your favorite cartoon character says a lot about you, so interpret our responses…

State of the Region Address: Atlantic South

Did you guys know that the State of the Region Address was my idea last year, as a rookie?  I think I might have been rookie of the year last year but I never got my trophy.  Started from the bottom, now we here.  Despite taking over the national scene and getting a better understanding…

Best of the Rest: Atlantic South Preview

For reasons I still do not know, Best of the Rest columns seem to be some of our highest requested articles.  Kidding, I know why – we just don’t give some of these teams enough love.  Either way, I’ll be projecting some of the “Best of the Rest” of the Atlantic South region below.  Unfortunately,…

The Others: ASouth’s Unranked Team Stock Watch

At the behest of the almighty D3TG (calling me out in comments), I will be focusing on some of the teams that I’ve overlooked this season.  The beauty of the DIII landscape is that teams can come out of nowhere to become nationally ranked teams.  Case Western is the most recent example of a team…

New Season, New Years’ Wishes

Well, tennis fans. It’s a brand new season. Everyone has a fresh start. Some teams are burdened by expectation, while others are optimistically lurking in the shadows, eagerly awaiting the opportunity to prove their worth. As much fun as it is to analyze every match, dissect every lineup decision, speculate over the cause of a letdown,…

Tuesday-Wednesday Wrap up

Williams completed their California sweep today with a 5-4 win over Cal Lu. The box score makes it look like the least dramatic 2-4 comeback of all time, as they won their four singles matches without dropping more than 4 games in a set. Though they entered the trip with the #3 national ranking, not…

Weekly Preview: March 26th-April 2nd

Tuesday #3 Williams vs. #10 Santa Cruz This is another one of those matches that Cruz has absolutely no business winning on paper. D3tennis thinks that Williams, Amherst, and Emory are just way better than everyone else, but crazier things have happened this season. In reality, I don’t think the Slugs can win this one.…

Running Weekly Review: March 5th-11th

Monday #19 Mary Washington beat #20 Cal Lutheran today. I’m a little surprised by the result, but I’m absolutely stunned by the way it happened. I thought Mary Washington would struggle at least a little bit in doubles in their first match on the West coast, and that wasn’t the case at all. They dominated…

Week Preview: March 5th-9th

The D3 season really picks up this week, with several ranking borderline teams making California swings. There are so many matches that I can’t really give all of them their due, so some of these previews will be very, very short: Monday #19 Mary Washington @ #20 Cal Lutheran The rankings don’t show it, but…
