2/24 Men’s Power Rankings

One thing that Indoor Nationals brings that you probably forgot is the return of our weekly power rankings.  The five bloggers have come together to once again take all the latest results and give you some rankings that are probably more reliable than the ITA rankings (#sorrynotsorry).  We have a lot of big changes due…

Spring Break – Walla Walla Recap

What’s up d3 tennis world. This past weekend, the tennis community migrated up to Walla Walla, WA, where #13 Whitman, #21 Redlands, #18 Texas-Tyler, and #23 UC Santa Cruz all met to play some dual matches! There were a number of questions that the critics had for these teams, such as how would Whitman respond…

Spring Break Walla Walla Preview

Oh DIII tennis, why can’t I quit you!? I keep trying to pretend each article is my last, but it’s not even worth pretending anymore. Last year, Whitman hosted a major DIII tennis weekend for the first time since Coach Northam created DIII National Indoors, and it was a blast. Though CMS pretty much stole the…

2015 Men’s Season Preview: #13 Whitman Squirrels

Apparently, we’re having trouble getting all the previews out, so The Headmaster has talked me out of retirement once more for this preview, making me the Roger Clemens of DIII tennis blogging. I haven’t exactly hid this fact from readers before, but Whitman is one of my favorite teams in the West. They’re like the Kenyon of…

Fall Nationals – A Joint Preview

Fall ITA Nationals technically start in 40 minutes with the play-in matchup of Hewlin (Whitman) and Krull (Trinity TX), so this preview kind of needs to go out.  I’m getting real nervous here writing this paragraph because I’m scared the commenters will behead me and burn me at the stake if this goes out at…

Women’s Northwest Regional Review

WHAT A WEEKEND!! Alright y’all, after one heavy dosage of D3 tennis last weekend. I am finally over the lull that is the days after an ITA Regional tournament. This past weekend featured the jam-packed West Region as well as the ever-intriguing Pacific Northwest. Heading into the tournaments, I really had no idea exactly what…

2015 Season Opening Power Rankings!

Wassuppppp wassup wassup. After an exciting weekend of ITAs where it looks like a lot of our viewers came back for some classic blog action, we decided to keep the ball rolling with our Weekly Power Rankings.  Now, they won’t be weekly here in the fall season because the blog here is all about efficiency,…

ITA Northwest Regional: A Wrapup

Whitman “Whitman freshman.” Get used to seeing those two words next to each other, both in the rest of this post and for the rest of this season. That might not be a great thing against the rest of the nation, but youth certainly served Whitman this weekend. The top-seeded Whitman freshman, Chase Friedman, had…
