Wash U

The Blog’s 2014 Season Awards

There was one day when I woke up and I had a vision. A vision that I should dedicate my life to DIII Tennis Blogging, giving feedback and recognition to players who worked their asses off but always played second or even third fiddle to their DI counterparts.  I’m proud to say that the vision…

Central Region Obituaries

I have been instructed to follow the same format as Mr. D3West in our post season wrap up so in an effort to be a conformist (how fun is that!), here goes nothing. The Central region had another solid season filled with teams that are doubles specialist and grit out wins. It seems to be…

A Mini Recap of NCAAs

Phew! Aren’t you glad that’s over? No? Me neither! Now it’s time for some serious withdrawal. Luckily, the writers will be working hard to try and avoid that wretched end of season feeling with recaps, previews, interviews, and of course, RANKINGS! My first post-NCAA piece will be something like a recap where I detail a…

D3Tennis: E8 Recap

I was supposed to write an extensive preview for the Elite 8, but couldn’t find the time and saw all the other bloggers doing a great job. Instead, I will provide some brief reflections on this week and the 8 teams that competed. I’m sure there will be a season recap in the near future…

The Elite 8 Previews: Trinity TX vs. Wash U

Everybody knows what happened the last time these two teams met. Wash U won a not-really-all-that-competitive 6-3 match in the semis of National Indoors, which has weighed pretty heavy on TU’s resume ever since. If you think this match is going to follow the same script, however, you are sorely mistaken. For one, this match…

Through The Eyes of ASouth: Elite 8 – Who’s Clutch, Who’s Not? (Part 1 of 3)

Hello!  I know that I’m very late on this “Through the Eyes” article, but I wanted to do something a bit differently this time around considering we have 4 writers this year.  I know you guys don’t want to read the same shit over and over, so I decided to do an article about the…

Vanilla Central with an Elite 8 Rap!

Well I was absolutely blown away with D3West’s poem to the teams of his region. Because of this, I got a bit of inspiration to write something a bit more creative on the Elite 8. So without further ado, I present to you the musical genius that is Vanilla Ice. Instead of his lyrical masterpiece,…

Through the Eyes of D3Northeast: The Elite 8

VOTE D3NE! THE TOTALS ARE STARTING TO MAKE ME SAD… Hi everybody (hi doctor D3NE), it’s time to give you all another different perspective on this year’s Elite 8. Don’t you all worry your pretty little eyes, we’ll be doing a boatload of Joint Previews over the weekend, but for now I’m continuing with each…

The 10 Questions of 2013/14: Revisited.

Now that we’ve reached the Elite 8 point in the year, it’s time to take a quick look back at what questions we’ve answered so far.  I’m scared that a lot of teams won’t come to the site since their teams have been eliminated, but to me, DIII Tennis never sleeps.  That’s why I want…

A Trip Down Memory Lane

I promise I will write an actual article about the Elite 8 later in the week, but for now use this as a warm up. I’ve selected 5 matches for each team remaining that are memorable to me when thinking about the program. All 5 of the matches together tell a story and I think…
