NE Weekend Preview

Hello again, boys and girls, and welcome to my first NE weekend preview of the year. I’ve been so caught up in #SB15 over the past few weeks, that I’ve spent more time with Pomona’s twitter feed than my roommate. While there are still a few teams wrapping up their warm weather wanderings, most of the…

Regional Roundup – Week Ending 3/26

Hello again! With RPI, George Fox, and Pacific taking trips to southern Cal, and W&L, CNU, and Sewanee gathering in the Atlantic South to play some matches, I have no shortage of great matches to recap. Luckily for my sanity, it is a little slower over the next week, but there are still a few…

Middlebury #SB15 “Precap”

Quick quiz, what current DIII team has one of the all time winningest coaches, brought in a top-10 recruiting class, faithfully updates their twitter, still has courts buried by snow, and is getting no love as a national championship contender? Today’s Spring Break Precap features none other than the Middlebury Panthers! Midd is currently ranked…

NCAA MEN’S REGIONAL PLAYERS OF THE WEEK: March 16th-March 22nd After a weekend jam packed of NCAA basketball, it’s time to shift our focus back to tennis, at least for the next three days.

This Week in West: March 23 – Whenever

Friends, fans, and well-wishers, I want to apologize for providing what I would consider to be a sub-par blogging experience to my West region teams. As much as I love DIII tennis, sometimes life gets in the way. Alas, it is time for my fortnightly State Of The Region article. I will do a brief…
