This Week In West: The Ojai!

With the regular season winding down, it’s time for the most unique event on the DIII tennis calendar: The Ojai. Here are the draws. You’ll notice that the following changes have been made: The singles draw has decreased from 64 to 32, and the doubles draw has decreased from 32 to 16. The draw is…

Regional Roundup – Mid-Season Review

Now that we are beyond the mid-season point and all of the writers have already come out with their mid-season reports, I wanted to throw my hat in the ring and give it a shot. D3RegionalNEC and D3West have already covered pretty much all of my teams, but I wanted to do some quick hitters…

Regional Roundup – Week of 3/31

Alright squad, before I get into yet another regional roundup, let me praise myself for a second. My predictions have been on point lately, as I called the exact score of both the Whittier vs. Whitewater match and Lewis & Clark vs. Denison. If only my March Madness picks were half as good as my…

West ITA Preview

ITA weekend is upon us, and it’s a weekend that always has me feeling a bit left out as a regional writer. However, D3West decided to be charitable/lazy and let me take the lead on writing about the west ITA, which frankly feels like a wide open tournament this year.   There are several story lines,…

This Week In West: The SCIAC Tournament

The SCIAC tournament has always been one of the best conference tournaments in the country. At times, the conference has had three or four teams in the top ten (much like the current UAA), and there are usually some major post-season implications in the final weekend before NCAA selections. One thing the SCIAC tournament has…

This Week In West: The SCIACs

Fresh off my Ojai Bracket Challenge victory, I’ll be writing this article with renewed swagger! As always, I am short on time, so I will be forgoing the team-by-team recap until after the SCIACs. With the final pre-selection regional singles and doubles rankings coming out later this week, however, I will chip in with my…

This Week in West: April 14 – …

West region fans, it deeply saddened me to punt last week’s West segment to Regional (who did a great job, btw, give the guy a hand), especially The Battle of Sixth Street looming, but I had a hard time telling the bossman, “yo, I know you pay me to do this, but I gotta take…

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…
