ITA Oracle Cup (Small College Nationals) Picks!

Prediction time, boys and girls. Everybody’s favorite chance to point at us and laugh after our picks go horribly awry. You can see that there’s a pretty even split towards the top of the singles picks, with 4 of the 8 contestants/teams being picked to win by different writers in both the singles and the…

Northeast ITA Preview

I can’t remember an ITA quite like this year’s Northeast tournament.  Often considered one of the weaker ITAs (a fair assessment), this tournament has recently gone one of three ways: Skidmore dominates, Heinrich dominates, or someone comes out of nowhere to make a run (anyone remember when Drew won the doubles a few years ago?).…

Regional Atlantic South (and some Northeast) Kickoff!

Happy Monday everyone!! I am quite excited to be a part of this team and look forward to being able to cover a wide range of teams from Saratoga Springs, NY to Birmingham, AL. Why am I covering this range of teams? I don’t know, but if ASouth says something, you just do it. I…

Middlebury Invitational Recap

Happy hump day, boys and girls, and welcome to the first tournament recap of the season! The Midd Invite is usually the NE fall tourney with the 2nd strongest field (behind only the ITA). This year, some of the other tournaments (Bates and MIT) will give it a run for its money, but as this…
