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…

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…

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.

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.

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…

We’ve got what you’ve all been waiting for. Another edition of Power Rankings for you to dissect, comment on, and ridicule in the comments.
