2018 Season Preview: IIAC and MIAC

Oh man. Two conferences, one preview. It’s never been done before…until NOW. Welcome to the IIAC+MIAC joint season preview! I decided to combine these two conference previews into one for a couple of reasons. 1. There’s very little mystery about which team is going to win each conference. 2. Writing each of these previews separately…

2018 Season Preview: #26 Kalamazoo Hornets

tl;dr: Kalamazoo has an exceedingly tough schedule that will give their one singles and doubles tons of chances to get within the top of the central region, but without an MIAA title in the stars Kalamazoo will have to pride itself on its regular season performance. Look for Kalamazoo to miss All-Time Great: Branden Metzler,…

2018 Season Preview: North Coast Athletic Conference

This year I’ve really taken my gift-giving to the next level. I’ve been giving family things that they’ll love, but that I will also benefit from. For my brother, he’s getting a gift card to a steakhouse, which he will likely invite me to join him at. I got my dad a pair of tickets…

2018 Season Preview: #25 Kenyon College

tl;dr: Kenyon will be led by a rotating triumvirate of Paolucci, Zalenski, and Diehl who have set their eyes past an NCAC Championship towards a deep NCAA run. Denison and Oberlin are nipping at their heels, but the eleven time defending champions are the Lords of NCAC Land until otherwise noted.   Let’s all take…

2018 Season Preview: #15 Case Western Reserve University

It’s Season Preview Time ! tl;dr: Case will have a more successful year than last relying on the strength of the middle of their singles lineup, but will need to have other areas step up to get back into the NCAA conversation. On It. Double Flip.  Starting off the central region will be the Spartans…

Season Preview – Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference

Since I like to give some love to lots of teams and I cover two regions, I knew that individual team season previews just wasn’t going to happen this year. For a while now I’ve been thinking of the best way to still give you all the coverage you want while maintaining a life beyond…

Central Region Top Dogs: Fall Review

Wowza, sorry for the tardiness on this y’all – a combination of responsibilities and those ridiculously talented kids on Stranger Things really set me back. Woo…the sprint of Fall Tennis has finally passed and now it’s time to look back and see how the top central teams have fared. No tournament or moment encapsulates the…

ASouth Stream of Consciousness – ASouth and MORE

Hey everyone. So, it’s been a while for me and articles and tweeting, which I am sure is disappointing the fans at large. I blame this on AVZ for getting me distracted about alternate currencies and I also blame RegNEC for not telling me a Snack of the Week every week. I blame NewD3Central and…

10 of D3RegionalNEC’s Random Thoughts from the Fall

Yo, long time no talk. Sorry, folks. Not a ton has really gone on though. To steal a favorite blogger inside joke, WHAT WOULD WE EVEN TALK ABOUT? The answer is probably not much, but that changes today. To finish out the fall season and wrap things up a bit, I’ve put together a listicle…

2017 Small College Nationals/ITA Oracle Cup: Doubles Preview

The singles are underway at the #OracleCup, but the doubles aren’t scheduled to start until the mid afternoon. That gave us a little more time to write another little ditty for you, this time with an eye on tennis played in pairs. Just like in the singles draw, Gustavus and Alhouni are the No. 1…
