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…

West Region Obituaries

Well, the season is over, and what a season it was. It had everything. It had 5-4 matches galore, the birth of team hashtags, great comment debates, many great tennis teams, and, most importantly, tasteful shit talking. Ultimately, the racquets did the talking, and, though Amherst walked away the champion, the West region will finish…

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…

FINALS: CMS VS AMHERST

ASouth: Well, well, well.  I know I said that I wouldn’t be back, but it looks like I’m back, filling in for D3West for an in-depth preview of the CMS/Amherst final.  I think I’ve absorbed enough from the live stream to do an in-depth preview so here goes nothing.  In terms of Northeast, I’m not…

FINAL 4: CMS VS MIDDLEBURY

West: As inspiring as Hopkins’ fight was, I have to say that I wasn’t too impressed with CMS’ showing today. I know they’re not playing for my approval, but I’m sure they’re not too happy with themselves either. I don’t mind the loss at 3 doubles; that stuff will happen. I don’t think losing the…

The Elite 8 Previews: Hopkins vs. CMS

Hopkins vs. CMS is probably the match that people think will go exactly as planned, and I undoubtedly agree with them.  Hopkins is going to have a tough time getting points in this one, but hopefully they can up their game and make this a match.  It would be nice to see CMS get challenged…

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,…

‘Twas the Night Before Natties…

‘Twas the night before natties, and all through the West Teams eagerly waiting to see who is best The Boxers in Oregon, new to the scene Learning to squash squirrels, if you know what I mean   A tough band of Slugs with a Quaker, a transfer Pairing him with LJ, was the right answer…
