Trinity Downed by St. Edward's Friday


Austin, Texas– The Tiger men's tennis team was downed in a 6-3 decision to St. Edward's University on Friday afternoon.

Trinity (1-2) lost for the second straight time on Friday, with all three matches being played away from home so far this year.  The Tigers took two of the three doubles matches for a promising start, but St. Edward's won five of the six singles contests to clinch the win.

Andrew Hoing teamed with Crisanto Ramirez to win 8-6 in No. 3 doubles, then Hoing took a 6-3, 6-3 win at No. 6 singles to help the Tigers to two of the team's three points.  Don Murray and Ben Carroll won at No. 2 doubles for the third point.

All-Americans Bobby Cocanougher and Cory Kowal lost 8-3 in No. 1 doubles, and the duo that has won two straight ITA Regional Doubles titles also lost in singles.

Trinity opens up the home portion of its schedule with two matches tomorrow.  The Tigers begin the day at 11:00 a.m. against the University of Incarnate Word, then finish with an afternoon matchup with Texas Lutheran University.
