Midwest’s Midseason Thoughts

As we enter the halfway mark of the 2017 season, I thought it would be a perfect time to jot down some thoughts on the nationally ranked central region teams. Honestly, things aren’t looking great. Without getting into too many specifics in this intro, most teams aren’t playing up to expectations, and some have just…

D3RegionalNEC’s Weekly Wrap-up and Weekend Preview

As the season rolls along, you’d think it would get easier to see how teams stack up. Well, I’m finding that to definitely NOT be the case, as more and more I’m seeing the classic “Team A beats Team B, Team B beats Team C, and Team C beats team A” scenario. Makes for difficult…

2017 Power Rankings, 3/23

I knew Wheaton and Wabash would be close, and as the match progressed it was clear it was going to come down…

This article features pretty much all of my teams and breaks down what happened last weekend, what’s coming up, and…

Central/Northeast Regional Weekend Preview

The excitement of last weekend’s Kalamazoo-Kenyon match was a great start to what should be a Central region full of tight matches this year, with a lot of teams appearing to be pretty even. This is great news for us fans of D3 tennis, and gives me plenty to write about. While the Northeast is…
