This Week In SCIAC: THE OJAI

It’s finally here. The event we’ve all been waiting for. The opportunity for CMS to assert their all-encompassing dominance by having their B team players knock off top guys. The chance for lesser-known doubles teams to come out of nowhere and win the tournament. The chance for people on the bubble for an NCAA berth…

Central vs. ASouth, Kenyon vs. CMU

NE Weekend Action

NE Weekend Action Ok, so first thing’s first, has anyone noticed that there seems to be a new, 5th region of DIII tennis? It is a region where the gravitational pull is so strong, that not even light (let alone Cal Lu) can escape it. That’s right, I’m talking about the black hole. Am I…
