Fall Nationals – A Joint Preview

Fall ITA Nationals technically start in 40 minutes with the play-in matchup of Hewlin (Whitman) and Krull (Trinity TX), so this preview kind of needs to go out.  I’m getting real nervous here writing this paragraph because I’m scared the commenters will behead me and burn me at the stake if this goes out at…

West Region ITA Recap

First of all, I have never been so wrong and so right in a single weekend…. Obviously no one could have predicted the winners of the tournament, and to be honest I am still not quite sure how it ended up that way, but such is the Fall Regional. I guess it’s past time for…

Women’s Northwest Regional Review

WHAT A WEEKEND!! Alright y’all, after one heavy dosage of D3 tennis last weekend. I am finally over the lull that is the days after an ITA Regional tournament.

Southwest ITA Wrapup

Southwest ITA Preview

Well, it’s late on a Friday night, and I have an early morning tomorrow, but the Southwest ITA deserves some coverage, so I’m gonna do my best. Coach Bizot did a great job to get the draws out as early as he did, all things considered, but this still might not be my best quality…

ITA Northwest Regional: A Wrapup

Whitman “Whitman freshman.” Get used to seeing those two words next to each other, both in the rest of this post and for the rest of this season. That might not be a great thing against the rest of the nation, but youth certainly served Whitman this weekend. The top-seeded Whitman freshman, Chase Friedman, had…

Women’s ITA Southwest Regional Review

Well, well, well boys and girls…the first ITA Regionals Weekend is in the books! The ITA Southwest region brought out some great tennis as well as some incredible tweeting (thank you to UT-Tyler, Austin College and TLU especially). So I am kinda feeling this “Thumbs-Up” and “Thumbs-Down” thing today so let’s go with that. “Thumbs-Up”…
