Table tennis season is here, and the Rams are ready

01.12.2016 | By: Texas Wesleyan University
Texas Wesleyan's 11-time national championship table tennis team is on the hunt for another national title.

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.

Feb. 20-21 – NCTTA Regional

Top teams from the divisional tournaments will advance to regionals, again hosted by Texas Wesleyan in the Sid Richardson Center gym. Help the team give a Texas-sized welcome to competitors from Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi and Louisiana. There will be 12 colleges and universities in town. Winners will advance to the national championships March 22-27 in Round Rock, Texas.

Game times and tournament schedule to be announced. For more information contact head coach Jasna Rather, jrather@txwes.edu.
