Trinity’s matches with Colorado College and Austin College, scheduled for today and Saturday in Sherman, Texas, were canceled because of weather damage to Austin College’s courts. The coaches will attempt to reschedule the matches.

Senior Crisanto Ramirez and sophomore Andrew Hoing captured No. 2 doubles, with an 8-3 win over Nick Parker and D’Artagnan Bebel.
