2015 Season Preview: #12 Kenyon

Kenyon College Coach: Scott Thielke Location: Gambier, OH Preseason ranking: #12 I don’t know what it is in the Midwest, but it seems like I always am talking about teams that work really hard to get the most out of what they have. Kenyon in the past has been sort of the blue collar team…

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: #35 Coe Kohawks

Coe College Coach: Eric Rodgers Location: Cedar Rapids, Iowa Preseason ranking: #35 Coe College, located in Iowa, is a really tiny liberal arts school that boasts a really good tennis team!

Coaches Corner: Coach Jay Tee University of Chicago

As a treat for all of you readers, I thought it would be a great idea to talk to Coach Tee from the University of Chicago on all things Maroon men’s tennis. Excitement is high as a Central region supporter can see that big things could be on the horizon for this team. Without further…
