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-…

Fall 2016 Women’s West Regional Preview

2016 – 2017 Season Opener!!   Hello again kiddos!! I am your ever-intuitive D3 West Women’s back for another year of exciting NCAA Division 3 action.  Things have changed dramatically since we last saw one another, players have graduated, titles have been won and lost, teams have been either cut from their school sports program…

West ITA Preview

Blast from the past: Hull taking out his teammate Nik Marino to win the west ITA in 2014

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,…

Kickoff: D3Regional (New England and West)!!!

Guess what, regional fans? I’m back! With less teams! D3AS has gotten tired of reading massive regional roundups and decided it was finally time to not make me cover four times the amount of teams of anybody else. I will be focusing on New England and the West this year, and I couldn’t be more…

Despite not a ton of matches happening in the past week but a LOT of hype from NCAAs, Power Rankings will always be posted on Wednesdays.  Anyways, there’s also something else that is very exciting going on for the blog and that would be NCAA BRACKET CHALLENGE.  If you…

This Week In West: The SCIAC Tournament

Southern_California_Intercollegiate_Athletic_Conference_logo

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 Ojai

Last Week In West The last week in the West region was quite a bit more eventful than the week before it, as we got a Texas Triad and a good match between CMS and Redlands, but it could have been better if Emory had made the trip out to San Antonio like they were…

Regional Roundup – Upsets All Around!

What a crazy week in regional world!  There were upsets galore in every region except the central this week, though I probably missed a result there and D3Central will yell at me after I post this.  Of course, L&C took out Whitman and Deis took out Bates, but Swarthmore also had a historic weekend with…
