Amherst/Williams 83rd Edition

This weekend, we get to witness one of the best rivalries in DIII. Williams and Amherst are always at the top of the NESCAC standings in any and all sports. Their rivalry goes much deeper than simply tennis. Legend tells the story of Zepheniah Swift Moore, a Williams professor who left in a huff in…

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…

DIII Discussion: Best Team of the Past 5 Years

We at the blog refuse to take any rest.  Given the state of the week (a lot of Northeast stuff, and who wants to read all D3Northeast?) we’ve decided to reach out on twitter to get a gauge of what kind of articles you guys wanted to see.  Well, one of the suggestions via e-mail…

I know you all have been waiting, and now the time has come. It’s time for the State of the Region to end all State of the Regions. ARE YOU READY FOR SOME NORTHEAST DIII TENNIS?! Can’t you just hear the Monday Night Football Theme playing in the background? I’ve been prepping my rankings all…

NE Weekend Preview: 4/5-4/6

NE Weekend Preview First things first, I’ll admit that I’m coming back after a night out (A-South style) and I really wish I had been smart enough to write this preview earlier today. However the combination of the bar and Captain America (and then a quick stop in the bar again) made for a fairly…

The Spring Break Epilogues: Amherst

Welcome to another installment of the Spring Break Epilogues. Today we get a look at the highest ranked NE team, who kept their stranglehold on the #2 spot in our weekly Power Rankings. The Amherst Lord Jeffs had one of the most interesting Spring Break schedules that I’ve ever seen. They played 17 matches in…

The Spring Break Epilogues: UC Santa Cruz

The Slugs made their annual pilgrimage to So Cal last week, and came away with two wins and three losses. That would be a good thing if they had scheduled five nationally ranked teams, but they only had three, and you can guess which three matches they lost. The two wins over Oxy and Chapman…
