This Week in SCIAC: Part Whatever

The Recap Last week’s 4-match slate ended up being anticlimactic with the exception of the CLU/Cruz match, so I’ll keep these recaps quick. #20 Redlands def. #22 Whittier 8-1 Whittier just can’t seem to find its mojo right now, and I have to see that I think their team chemistry is a little messed up.…

This Week In SCIAC: Part 3 (ft. Trinity, Tyler, Cruz, Ke$ha)

Well, we’ve got a host of great West region matches this weekend as we work our way into the home stretch. I think I’ve got them all on this list, but if you know of another that should be previewed, please let me know in the comments, and I’ll try to preview it before it…

Pool C Update: Who’s In, Who’s Out?

With the release of our second bracketology and the calendar officially hitting April, it’s about time to get a Pool C Update and take a look at what teams are in, what teams are out, and what teams are really out.  Right now, it’s actually a clear cut picture for the top 7 teams in…

This Week in SCIAC: Part 1

With West region Spring Breaks officially over, it’s that time of the season when the California teams shift gears into conference play. It’s no mystery who will be winning the SCIAC this year, but there are several important matches being played in terms of national rankings, Pool C standing, and individual competition. It’s always fun…

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…

The Spring Break Epilogues: Whitman

This will be the last time we hear about the Squirrels until the national tournament, so I’ll try to get as squirrelly as I can with this recap. It was a bit of an ambiguous Spring Break for Whitman, but it was definitely better than last year, and they have reason to be optimistic The…

Spring Break Chronicles: Whitman, volume 2

Before I get going with the preview, a quick insight. You ever notice how the isolated West region teams tend to only play each other? Trinity, Tyler, Whitman, and Santa Cruz have a total of 3 or 4 non-regional ranked matches this year. The reason for this is the respective coaches are doing their best…

The Spring Break Chronicles: Texas-Tyler

I’ve said this several times, but Texas-Tyler is one of the most enigmatic teams in DIII tennis. On the surface, they have no business being successful. The school has none of the usual aspects of a successful DIII tennis program: Good academics? Nope Desireable location? Uhhh… hehe International recruiting niche? Not even The only thing…

An Ode to the Slug Life

This is a longwinded recap of UCSC’s 5-4 win over Whittier this past weekend. Basically what happened in the match was the Team of Destiny came up huge, recovering from a late break at #2 doubles to eventually win in an epic tiebreaker, to give Cruz a 2-1 lead after doubles. Then, the Earlham transfer…
