Regional Roundup – NEWMAC Preview and Individuals Update

This Saturday will be the semis and finals of the NEWMAC tournament. The NEWMAC has been a conference long dominated by MIT basically as long as some of our writers have been alive. This year, with Babson losing their top 3 guys to graduation, MIT is probably as a big a favorite as they have…

This Week In West: The Ojai!

With the regular season winding down, it’s time for the most unique event on the DIII tennis calendar: The Ojai. Here are the draws. You’ll notice that the following changes have been made: The singles draw has decreased from 64 to 32, and the doubles draw has decreased from 32 to 16. The draw is…

Regional Roundup – NWC Championships and Texas Friday Night Lights

Quick intro this week or else I won’t even have this out by the start of the Southwestern/Trinity. I know everyone is all up in arms about the UAA Championships this weekend, as they should be (Jason’s Deli and UAA banquet photos for the win), but we have other tennis going on across the country.…

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…

State of the Region Address: West

Because the inaugural regional rankings are forthcoming this week, and most teams’ Spring Breaks are now completed, I thought it was a good time for a state of the region address. I’m gonna start by taking a dive into the mess of results that make up the individual qualifiers in both singles and doubles, and…

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…
