Power Rankings, 5/4

I’ve spent most of my morning listening to the podcast with AVZ and Coach Browning of Emory, which is why these Power Rankings are going out a little bit late. If you would like to listen to the podcast, which you should, feel free to click the link below. Power Rankings aren’t going anywhere. Van…

This Week in West: The SCIACs

It’s the final week of the pre-NCAA’s season, and that means it’s the SCIAC championships. The conference isn’t quite as strong as it once was, but with three teams in the top 15, it’s still clearly the third strongest conference in the country. Here’s a preview: Quarterfinals (1) CMS def. (8) Occidental 5-0 – The Stags…

Regional Roundup – NEWMAC Preview and Individuals Update

Regional Roundup – Week of 3/31

Alright squad, before I get into yet another regional roundup, let me praise myself for a second. My predictions have been on point lately, as I called the exact score of both the Whittier vs. Whitewater match and Lewis & Clark vs. Denison. If only my March Madness picks were half as good as my…

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…
