Lambeth is the Singles Player of the Week, while Hamilton and Akagi-Okuma were tabbed as the Doubles Team of the Week. All three contributed to 15th-ranked Trinity's 9-0 shutout home victories last weekend over Austin (TX) College, Hardin-Simmons (TX) University, and East Texas Baptist University.

Lambeth, a junior, won his #3 singles matches against Austin College and Hardin-Simmons and captured the top singles line with East Texas Baptist. This season, Lambeth stands at 6-12, with a 5-8 mark at #3 singles and a 1-2 record on the first line.

First-years Hamilton and Akagi-Okuma captured all of three of their #2 doubles matches. The Tiger tandem is sporting a record of 11-6, all on the second line of doubles. Hamilton and Akagi-Okuma are also on a five--match win streak.

Trinity has won five consecutive matches, and has an 8-10 record prior to Tuesday's home match with #31 Kalamazoo (MI) College. The Tigers host Pacific (OR) University at 4:00 p.m. Thursday and wrap up their regular-season home schedule Friday by taking on 30th-ranked University of Texas-Tyler at 10:00 a.m.
