Lessons from the Central Region Weekend

For those of you wondering about the picture, my tweet yesterday would be an explanation. For those of you who still don’t get it, I am sorry for you. Instead of doing a complete wrap up of all the matches played, I thought I would mix it up a bit. The biggest reason is because…

State of the Region Address: Central

Alright gentleman, the first set of regional rankings come out this week on Thursday I believe so we are all giving it our best shot at predicting where each team will end up as well as picking individuals. There are still a lot of matches to be played, but for now this will be an…

Division3Tennis Composite Rankings

D3Central’s “State of the Region Address”

D3ASouth did a great job with his article and it sparked my interest. In general, my analysis and write-ups have been on the positive side and have been sparkly and kind. Not today.
