State of the Region Address: West Region

With the first regional rankings of the Spring season coming out this week, I think it’s time for the first “State of the Region Address” of the year. After last night’s result, it’s officially “The Year of the 5-4″ in the West region. (Ready for some illuminati crap? 5+4+4 = 13, 5+4+5 = 14. It’s…

Division3Tennis Composite Rankings

As you all know, rankings are a bit of a hot topic all the time in Division III Tennis.  Rankings oftentimes don’t come out fast enough for them to always reflect the comings and goings of the busy DIII schedule.  The writers at DIII Tennis have decided that we will be doing weekly rankings (power…

Southwest Regional Report Card

Well, the bulk of my intense investigative journalistic work is behind me, and all I have left to do is recap Trinity and Whitman’s respective bloodbaths. Since this is pretty simple, I’m gonna cut through the alphabetical malarkey and go straight to the teams that matter most. Trinity By all accounts, this was a stellar…

ITA Southwest (P)review

Well, D3Northeast is doing some pretty serious work, so I thought I should at least write something for the last of the three regionals going on out west right now. Actually, I finally got the draw this morning, and that’s only because the UT-Tyler website posted it in the results. Chalk that one up to…

Through the Eyes of D3West: Abridged version

Like D3ASouth, I’m going to keep this short. I don’t know much about the non-regional teams, and I’m not going to waste my time making up predictions for players I don’t know. Unlike D3ASouth, I am going to complain about the bracket because it feels good. Region 1 Just so you know. This region is…

Through the Eyes of D3AS: NCAA Regionals UPDATED

We’ve decided to do NCAA predictions/thoughts for every writer here at D3, if you didn’t know.  It’ll be interesting to see the different takes as to predictions on each region.  I will NOT complain about the bracket in this post, enough of that has been done and I’ve found that complaining doesn’t really get you…

NCAA Preview Through the Eyes of: an unbiased observer

Buckle up your seat belts, ladies and gentlemen, because this is going to be a long one. Before I get into each region, let’s take a quick step back and look at the NCAA selection process: – Though the NCAA and ITA are completely separate entities, the NCAA publishes the ITA rankings on their website for the…

UT-Dallas and the Ojai Recap

UT-Dallas def. #11 UT-Tyler 5-2 In a season that had been mostly bereft of on-court drama, we finally got some thrills this past weekend in the conference tournaments. Nothing could top Wash U’s victory over Emory in terms of suspense and calibre of play, but I think the biggest surprise of the season came in,…

State of the Region Address: D3West

The rankings are coming out in a couple days, and I’m sure they will reflect another fortnight of positive rankings momentum for the west region. It’s weird because the relative rankings of the teams in each region are in large part determined by a select few inter-region matches. For example, Pomona-Pitzer beating GAC benefits all…
