Your Extensive West Region Fall Recap

Though the fall season is a relatively quick one for the players out West, I see it as one of the most grueling weekends of the year. There aren’t many times in the spring where you’ll play up to 10 matches (singles and doubles) in one weekend, so huge props to those who played an…

West Region ITA Rapid Reax

I’m feeling good because the Broncos just won, so I’m gonna pump out a quick rapid reaction from my favorite tennis weekend of the year.
