San Antonio - Wilson Lambeth was named the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Men's Tennis Player of the Week for the third time this season, while Wilson Hamilton and Jace Akagi-Okuma were tabbed as the Doubles Team of the Week.

The Tiger standouts played major roles in 11th-ranked Trinity's two home 9-0 victories last week. Trinity first blanked the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and then shut out #29 Southwestern (TX) University.

Lambeth moved to the top singles position for the first time this season and won both of his matchups. Ranked 12th in singles in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association West Region, Lambeth first defeated the Wisconsin-Eau Claire player and then beat the eighth-ranked singles competitor from Southwestern.

This season, Lambeth is on a seven-match win streak and is sporting an overall 10-6 record.

Hamilton and Akagi-Okuma won both doubles matches on the third line. The Tiger tandem is 5-1 overall and is undefeated at 5-0 on the third line of doubles.

The Tiger team has won five matches in a row and stands at 11-8 on the season and 10-2 against NCAA Division III opponents.

Trinity travels to Claremont, California, for two matches this weekend. The Tigers will take on #20 Gustavus Adolphus (MN) College Friday and 13th-ranked Pomona-Pitzer (CA) Colleges Saturday.
