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 – Spring Breaks Galore

Another week, another Regional Roundup.  I know I’m a little late this week, but my goal was to get this out before the Lewis & Clark and Pacific spring breaks began tomorrow.  Mission accomplished.  I have no time to dilly-dally so let’s get right into it.  First, let’s start with a Colby Mules spring break…

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…

Power Rankings, 3/9

On Thursdays, we power rank. Well, technically we power rank on Wednesdays, but I don’t get around to posting it until Thursday afternoon. Shoutout to all the bloggers who made it to the power rankings powwow yesterday even though I was not able to make it. I’m still recovering from that 3 hour episode of the…

Spring Break Walla Walla Report Card

I know you don’t usually get grades over Spring Break, but let’s be honest, we all know none of these teams are actually on Spring Break, and we have only used this monicker to lightly poke fun at Walla Walla for being a potentially sub-optimal spring break destination. On to the grades. Here are the…

Spring Break Walla Walla!!!!

D3W: Welcome to the Spring Break Walla Walla preview, and boy do we have a doozy of a quad lined up for you this year. This is undoubtedly the best quartet since the very first (featuring CMS, Trinity, and a still-relevant UC Santa Cruz), and it’s nice to see some early interregional action with Gustavus…

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-…
