New England ITA Preview

WIIIIIIILLLLIIIIIIIIAAAAAMMMSSSSS

Happy ITA weekend, boys and girls. The New England ITA is the best thing that happens during the fall season in my 100% biased opinion. The amount of talent at this ITA is bordering on dangerous, and that’s without some of the region’s top players! The #1 player in the region and player generally thought to…

The new season is upon us, which means a new set of upsets, nail-biters, and, most importantly, freshmen.

2016 Women’s Post-season Blog Awards

What’s up people?  So many people have asked for more women’s articles that I feel like my life has meaning.  I’m here to fill that void for you.  This is one of my favorite articles I’ve written cuz I get to commemorate the great seasons so many players have had.  These competitors have sacrificed all…

Wow!  We’ve had a couple of incredible days of tennis on both the men’s and women’s sides.  These battles are what the NCAA tournament is all about.  NCAAs is a different beast from the regular season; all the pressure and anticipation of the event can make for some crazy and exciting matches.  Every single player…

2016 Women’s Quartefinal Preview
