What's to see in D3 - Conference Recaps
Ok so I did not get as many conference previews up last week as I wanted to, however, I did call many of the upsets both team and individual. The one team champion I did not call was from my old conference (how about that). I will admit I had a good feeling that NYU would pull it out, but I just could not get myself to say the words, but congrats to the Violets as Coach Mcdonough and his squad did it again.
I did not have an interview this week...again, my bad, but this coming week is an off week for just about every team, so I will do my best to get an interview done as there will not be much else to write about next week. Also as there was not a new poll this week, I am simply going to go through the list of conferences and detail the champions (team and in most cases individual) and if there were notable runners up, I will list them as well. There is alot to get through so if I do not give your conference as much attention as you would like/think it deserves, my apologies.

Perhaps one of the more confusing conference championship systems around because of the championship meet and the multi-dual meet. At the November 1 race, the Claremont men and women took home the team title, however only the women were named conference champions. On the men's side this distinction was given to OXY, as they placed second at the championship meet, but went an undefeated 7-0 compared to Claremont's 5-2 record at the duals. This meant that after the championship race, Claremont still had two loses compared to OXY's 1 giving the title to OXY.
