Fall Nationals – A Joint Preview

Fall ITA Nationals technically start in 40 minutes with the play-in matchup of Hewlin (Whitman) and Krull (Trinity TX), so this preview kind of needs to go out.  I’m getting real nervous here writing this paragraph because I’m scared the commenters will behead me and burn me at the stake if this goes out at…

West Region ITA Recap

First of all, I have never been so wrong and so right in a single weekend…. Obviously no one could have predicted the winners of the tournament, and to be honest I am still not quite sure how it ended up that way, but such is the Fall Regional. I guess it’s past time for…

Southwest ITA Wrapup

The Main Event Trinity (TX) It’s difficult to analyze this tournament for the Tigers because they always dominate it so thoroughly. We’ll start with singles: Trinity did predictably well here.

ITA Regional Preview: Northwest

(Boom. Thrown shade, topical humor, testicle joke, and intrigue all in the first sentence). Anyways, buckle…

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…
