ITA Preview: Northwest

Ladies and Germs, welcome back to another year of snarky ITA West region Division III Men’s Tennis coverage brought to you by me.

Kickoff: D3Regional (New England and West)!!!

Guess what, regional fans? I’m back! With less teams! D3AS has gotten tired of reading massive regional roundups and decided it was finally time to not make me cover four times the amount of teams of anybody else. I will be focusing on New England and the West this year, and I couldn’t be more…

Mom brought Nutella!

The new season is upon us, which means a new set of upsets, nail-biters, and, most importantly, freshmen.

When the original Guru decided to take a step back from the blog in 2012, it left a chasm in the D3 tennis blog universe that many were were trying (foul language) to fill.

The Guru’s Elite 8 Recap

A recap of the eight teams that participated this week. I’m still speechless 48 hours later… Johns Hopkins – I don’t think the Blue Jays have received enough credit for reaching four Final Eights in the past five years.
