Small College Nationals: 10 fun/meaningless stats

Happy Wednesday, boys and girls, and welcome to the first of The Blog’s Small College Nationals (now called the ITA Oracle Cup) preview articles! We are hoping to have a prediction article out for you tonight, a roundtable article for you tomorrow morning, and perhaps even more if my fellow bloggers get their acts together.…

Report Card! How Teams Fared at the Northeast ITA

Back in the day, the Northeast ITA was referred to as the “Skidmore ITA.” I was always reluctant to use the term, since it diminishes the other teams in the region, but I have to say, there might be something to it. Year after year, Skidmore flexes their muscles. Four of the past six singles…

Northeast ITA Preview

Ladies. Gentlemen. Children of all ages. Welcome to D3RegionalNEC’s Northeast ITA Preview. It took some time to find the draw, but thanks to a friendly coach for passing it along! For a while now, this seems like a tournament that has just one or two guys that can win it. Loutsenko, Wu,, Heinrich, Leung. All…

Middlebury Invitational Recap

Happy Tuesday, boys and girls! It’s decorative gourd season, which means ITAs are almost here…so I thought I would do something other than give you an ITA preview. How about a quick recap of the weekend’s NE events to help you degenerate DIII gamblers figure out your weekend ITA bets? There will be plenty of…

Welcome back! Central and Northeast Regional Kickoff!

Well, here we are. Another year of Division III tennis is upon us, my second as a blogger. Don’t expect any sophomore slump from me, though. Like the Blog as a whole, I’ve got big plans for this season, and am excited to get back to writing, tweeting, and reading all things D3 Tennis. First…

Pool A or Bust: A Look at Some of the Lesser Known Conference Tournaments

D3RegASouth: Ladies and gentlemen, prepare to be amazed. In this article we will be covering not one, not three, but FIVE conference previews! Yes you heard that right! However, such a feat is not able to be completed alone, which is why I’ve brought in my dear friends the Real ASouth and our resident RegNEC…

A Look at the Singles and Doubles ITA Rankings with D3RegionalNEC

Much like the teams we cover, we have our ups and downs. I admittedly was not as active on twitter or with new articles as I have been, and for that I apologize. Behind the scenes things are still getting done (like three hour Skype calls with other writers), so don’t fret. Besides, I’m here now,…

D3RegionalNEC’s HUGE Weekend Recap

Last night as I went through the weekend’s results, I was ready to start a tweet storm of scores and my thoughts on everything. However, before clicking send, I realized—tweet storms are usually pretty dumb. If you have a lot to say, maybe don’t go on a platform that limits you to 140 characters. So…

Regional Roundup – Mid-Season Review

Now that we are beyond the mid-season point and all of the writers have already come out with their mid-season reports, I wanted to throw my hat in the ring and give it a shot. D3RegionalNEC and D3West have already covered pretty much all of my teams, but I wanted to do some quick hitters…

D3RegionalNEC’s Mid Season Report, Part II: The Northeast Region

Back again for part two of my midseason reports, this time focusing on the Northeast. I realize we’re well past mid-season at this point, especially for my teams, but with the weather finally beginning to improve a bit, it still feels like there’s a whole lot of tennis ahead of us.  Anyway, just like part…
