POTW: 3/20-3/26

REGIONAL PLAYERS OF THE WEEK: 03/20-03/26 Monday means POTW, so here we go. If you missed it, check out the big articles: a mid-season review from the Guru and D3West’s State of the Region, giving major updates on the current season so far. Also, if you live under a rock (or never visit our homepage),…

The Guru’s Brief Midseason Review

It sounds amazing, but we are just about half way through the 2017 season. I wrote some brief comments on each team and broke things into five categories. I tried to touch on just about everyone in the top 30 as well as a few other teams that have stuck out to me. Apologies if…

D3RegionalNEC’s Weekly Wrap-up and Weekend Preview

As the season rolls along, you’d think it would get easier to see how teams stack up. Well, I’m finding that to definitely NOT be the case, as more and more I’m seeing the classic “Team A beats Team B, Team B beats Team C, and Team C beats team A” scenario. Makes for difficult…

WEEKEND PREVIEW: 3/24-3/26

WEEKEND PREVIEW: 3/24-3/26 Happy weekend, boys and girls. Instead of posting six or seven short previews throughout the day, we decided it would be easier for everybody if we condensed all the top-30 ranked matches into one larger weekend preview. If you want to read more about #10 Williams’ weekend (vs #4 Chicago, #11 Redlands,…

2017 Power Rankings, 3/23

It’s Thursday, and that means Power Rankings. While the top 20 was fairly silent with no big upsets the past week, we did have some movement down below that I am sure our regional writers and readers are more than excited about. Also, we just released AVZ’s first podcast ever, featuring an interview with #8…

Van Zee’s Vault: Spring Break Edition

I am coming off what might be the highlight of my blogging career after last night’s post of my first ever podcast. You can listen to it here http://www.division3tennis.com/van-zees-vault-first-podcast/ I couldn’t have picked a better guest in Coach Fried and I truly am a Wesleyan fan from here on out. I shouldn’t be too surprised…

#2 CMS vs. #5 Chicago Preview

A quick look at Tufts’ spring break

Psssst, hey you over there, remember Tufts? Yeah, Tufts. The team that both lost to MIT and beat Bowdoin in the span of about 48 hours at the end of last year? Well they’re playing tennis again for the first time in 2017. I know right, who knew! Luckily we’ve got you covered, and I’m here…

Kalamazoo Comes East: A Spring Break Preview

Even though Kalamazoo is now a top 20 team and firmly into D3Midwest’s territory, I will happily keep writing about them until someone tells me to stop.  They’re a team with a rich history, a stud at the top of their lineup, unique home courts, and also happen to be perhaps the most improved team…
