Emil Santos is back for his final season as a Ram, and is looking to lead the team to its 12th national championship this spring.
Texas Wesleyan's 11-time national championship table tennis team is making another run for a national title.
In 2015, Texas Wesleyan battled Mississippi College in the TMS College Table Tennis National Championships finals. The score reached 2-2 and deuce in the fifth set of doubles, before Mississippi College went on to survive a championship point and win the final set 12-10, ending Texas Wesleyan's run of 11 consecutive titles in the event.
This year, the Rams are out to reclaim their No. 1 ranking against rivals at Mississippi College, and secure a 12th national title.
Tournament play begins in the Sid Richardson Center in January:
Jan. 30 – NCTTA Texas Divisional
Watch Texas Wesleyan take on divisional rivals like UT-Austin, UNT, Texas A&M and UT-Dallas live from the Sid Richardson Center. Winners will head to regionals.

Top teams from the divisional tournaments will advance to regionals, again hosted by Texas Wesleyan in the Sid Richardson Center gym.
