Swarthmore Invitational Report Cards

Intro: Just because it’s INDOORS WEEK (!!!!) doesn’t mean that we’ll be forgoing our non-Indoors-related DIII tennis coverage. There were some great matches this past weekend in Pennsylvania, as the middle of the Atlantic South started their seasons with a West region visitor crashing the party without bringing any In-n-Out with them. Rude. Box Scores:…

Swarthmore Invitational Preview

Last year, the Garnet made the trek out to Walla Walla and ended up on the wrong end of a 7-2 drubbing. This year, Whitman is bringing half their team and two juicy indirect wins with them across three time zones to play Swat, CNU, and Haverford.

Spring Break Walla Walla Report Card

I know you don’t usually get grades over Spring Break, but let’s be honest, we all know none of these teams are actually on Spring Break, and we have only used this monicker to lightly poke fun at Walla Walla for being a potentially sub-optimal spring break destination.

Spring Break Walla Walla!!!!

We’ve found a potential D3West replacement, and we’re trying him out with a preview of the newly-appellated Whitman College Blues (though they’ll always be the Fighting Squirrels to me). I think he did a pretty good job, but please let him know what you think in the comments. Coach: Jeff Northam (17th or 18th season)…

They said we were dead. They said we couldn’t do it anymore. But here we are, giving you the inaugural power rankings of 2017. Not only that, we’re giving you a bit of new flavor this year. We have Regional AS and NEC on board, and we have a new writer in D3Midwest as well.…

West Region ITA Report Card

Because the ITAs typically represent the first and only look we get at West region teams prior to the start of the season in earnest, I would like to take a second to recap the ITAs, and pen a few thoughts on each of the major competitors. We’ll go chronologically Northwest ITA George Fox: A-…
