Regional Roundup – Colby Spring Break and More

According to D3West, the #2 rule of being a blogger is “don’t let blogging get in the way of your personal life”.  He still won’t tell me what rule #1 is.  Anyway, I bring this up as I was traveling last week and didn’t have the chance to write my weekly Regional Roundup.  However, this…

West Region ITA Report Card

Because the ITAs typically represent the first and only look we get at West region teams prior to the start of the season in earnest, I would like to take a second to recap the ITAs, and pen a few thoughts on each of the major competitors. We’ll go chronologically Northwest ITA George Fox: A-…

West ITA Preview

ITA weekend is upon us, and it’s a weekend that always has me feeling a bit left out as a regional writer. However, D3West decided to be charitable/lazy and let me take the lead on writing about the west ITA, which frankly feels like a wide open tournament this year.   There are several story lines,…

Kickoff: D3Regional (New England and West)!!!

Guess what, regional fans? I’m back! With less teams! D3AS has gotten tired of reading massive regional roundups and decided it was finally time to not make me cover four times the amount of teams of anybody else. I will be focusing on New England and the West this year, and I couldn’t be more…

This Week In West: The SCIAC Tournament

The SCIAC tournament has always been one of the best conference tournaments in the country. At times, the conference has had three or four teams in the top ten (much like the current UAA), and there are usually some major post-season implications in the final weekend before NCAA selections. One thing the SCIAC tournament has…

This Week In West: The Ojai

Last Week In West The last week in the West region was quite a bit more eventful than the week before it, as we got a Texas Triad and a good match between CMS and Redlands, but it could have been better if Emory had made the trip out to San Antonio like they were…

Regional Roundup – Back on Track

I’m sure that all the bloggers thought I was MIA this week, but much to their chagrin, I am back with some regional roundup.  Nothing too fancy this week, as I had quite a bit of matches to preview, and the first of these matches is in like two hours!  Please disregard any typos (sorry…

Regional Roundup – Upsets All Around!

What a crazy week in regional world!  There were upsets galore in every region except the central this week, though I probably missed a result there and D3Central will yell at me after I post this.  Of course, L&C took out Whitman and Deis took out Bates, but Swarthmore also had a historic weekend with…

Regional Roundup – NYU, ASouth, Brandeis, and a whole lot More

The D3 tennis fans of the world will be focusing on Claremont this weekend for the annual Stag-Hen, and the blog is going to have you covered with plenty of coverage all weekend long.  However, as the regional blogger solely responsible for not forgetting about the little guy, I am not forgetting about the little…
