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…

ALL-NE TEAMS!

As promised, here are my All-NE teams. I’m not nearly as nice as D3West (we all know that’s simply not true) so I’m not listing one player from each team. HOWEVER, I have made 4 separate teams. 1st and 2nd team ALL-NE are fairly self explanatory in that they are the 1st and 2nd best…

NESCAC UPDATE

Man, I’m pretty jealous of West/Central/ASouth (said no one ever). Amidst the UAA Conference Tournament and all the OJAI bracket madness, I feel like nobody cares about poor old NE. As I’m not one to take this sort of think lightly, I’m here to provide you with a NESCAC update (furious clapping in the background).…

Midweek NE Teaser

Skid @ Midd Tuesday @4pm Well look who finally decided his wrist was healthy enough to play? Loutsenko stepped in against the defending champions last weekend and decided to throw a giant monkey wrench into the Selection Committee’s seeding arrangements. We knew that Skidmore’s #1 doubles team was good, but their going to have to…

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…
