Happy Friday, boys and girls, and welcome to The Blog’s first region-specific Pool-C update. As you all know, the NE is filled with a plethora of talented teams. As of the latest ITA rankings (from all the way back on April 9), the top-11 look like this: Amherst, Middlebury, Bowdoin, Williams, Bates, Wesleyan, Trinity, Stevens, Skidmore, Brandeis,…

Women’s Pool C!

I’m going to give my best attempt to follow in the big footsteps of @D3ASouth and write a Pool C article for the women’s side. First, let me set some background information regarding the Pools. There are three ways to qualify for the NCAA Team Championships. The first is through Pool A, which are the…

4/14 Power Rankings (M)

This is a friendly reminder to always save your work, especially when working in a terrible website like WordPress.  In my effort to post Men’s and Women’s Power Rankings at the same time, I got the Men’s Power Rankings erased.  Since I am upset and have other work to do, I will not be providing…

4/14 Power Rankings (W)

Hey all! The Women’s team is back for some power rankings, which we have clearly set to be every month.  Look for more frequent Power Rankings as we start to add a couple more women’s articles for the end of the year and conference tournaments.  I’ve heard around the block that D3NEW has some Pool…

Pool C Update #2

Man, I had myself a WEEKEND.  But y’all aren’t here to hear about my doings, y’all are here to hear about some Pool C action because DIII Tennis had itself a weekend as well.  If you want to reference my old Pool C article for assumptions on rules, teams, etc, please visit it here.  I…

4/7 Power Rankings (M)

Here we have the latest chapter in our division3tennis.com Power Rankings.  In this chapter, old stalwarts have risen to beat previously overrated foes and new challengers have joined the top 30. Regional biases have been called out and some have been thrown out the window, but not all have been eliminated.  However, one team still…

Pool C Update #1 – Bubble Watch

Well, I gave you a look at the historical Pool C data when I posted earlier this week and now I’m going to hit you all with some Pool C stuff.. for the CURRENT time period.  How relevant! This article is going to be another step in me building towards our first bracketology of the…

#PoolCWeek – A Historical Look

It’s time for a history lesson!! As you see in the POTW article, mid-March is not only the time for March Madness (although the Madness is over for me) but also time for me to start writing crazy articles like Pool C and Bracketology.  I personally love both of those things especially because I only…

NE Midweek Update

Gather round children, and welcome to a rare NE Midweek Update in April. Now that Williams is finishing up their #SB15 (it’s about time to retire that hashtag), the NE will revert back to its somewhat boring normalcy of weekend matches. However, because there are two somewhat important NE matches later today, I figured I’d…
