Weekend Preview: Kenyon Triangle, Mary Washington Quadrangle

It seems like it has been forever since I have discussed anyone outside of Wash U, but that is the nature of the Central region as everyone is still trying to get outside to play on a more consistent basis. Most schedules are front and back loaded with a massive boring lull in the middle.…
