The Blog’s 2014 Season Awards

There was one day when I woke up and I had a vision. A vision that I should dedicate my life to DIII Tennis Blogging, giving feedback and recognition to players who worked their asses off but always played second or even third fiddle to their DI counterparts.  I’m proud to say that the vision…

Central Region Obituaries

I have been instructed to follow the same format as Mr. D3West in our post season wrap up so in an effort to be a conformist (how fun is that!), here goes nothing. The Central region had another solid season filled with teams that are doubles specialist and grit out wins. It seems to be…

The 10 Questions of 2013/14: Revisited.

Now that we’ve reached the Elite 8 point in the year, it’s time to take a quick look back at what questions we’ve answered so far.  I’m scared that a lot of teams won’t come to the site since their teams have been eliminated, but to me, DIII Tennis never sleeps.  That’s why I want…

NCAA Regionals: A Recap

I feel like I say this every weekend, but what an amazing weekend for DIII Tennis.  If you didn’t think this weekend was exciting, I have serious doubts as to why you even read this blog.  Just kidding, I love you all.  This weekend saw a couple blockbuster matches, a few scares here and there,…

Trinity TX Region @ Gustavus

Conference Tourney Previews: CCIW, MIAA, HCAC, OAC, MIAC, and IIAC

D3 Tennis fans are you in for a special treat! Are you tired of hearing about all the top dogs like Wash U, Case, Kenyon, etc? The readers ask and they shall receive. I figured I would do a quick overview of the conference tournaments that are occurring this weekend. These conference tournaments are big…

Central Region Top 10 Status

Well it seems that it is time for another state of the region address for the Central as some teams have already punched their ticket to Nationals, some have ended their season as a Pool C bid is unlikely, and some are still finishing up in hopes of making the tournament. Here is a brief…

D3Tennis’ GOLFY Thoughts and State of the Program: Top 15

As the resident historian, I wanted to commend the bloggers for the GOLFY article and also give my brief thoughts since I had the pleasure of seeing all those teams play, some live and some on NCAA video feed.
