Texas Wesleyan table tennis brings home 12th national title
The Texas Wesleyan University table tennis team claimed both the coed team and women's team titles at the 2016 TMS College Table Tennis National Championships on Easter Sunday, March 29.
Texas Wesleyan has now won the Coed Team National Championship 12 times in the last 13 years. The Lady Rams claimed their sixth championship. Winning the titles in men's and women's doubles pushed the program's total to 60 championships since beginning in 2002.
Last year, Mississippi College survived a championship point before beating the Rams and ending their streak of 11 consecutive Coed National Championships. This year, the Rams rolled through matches against Toronto and Ohlone College on their way to a rematch with the Choctaws.
The women's team won against Harvard and NYU to reach the final. The Lady Rams rolled out Anastasia Rybka and Edina Haracic, who won the women's doubles title on Friday, March 25.
In this year's competition, the Rams were back to dominate. Texas Wesleyan won the coed team, women's team, men's doubles, and women's doubles competition while they were the runner-up in women's singles and had a semifinalist in men's singles.
