Trinity Men Win ITA Regional Singles and Doubles Titles

San Antonio – The Trinity Tigers swept the “A” Singles and Doubles Championships Sunday, in all Trinity finals, at the USTA/ITA Division III Men’s Tennis Southwest Region Championships.
 
Senior Bobby Cocanougher of Southlake, Texas (Carroll), the No. 2 seed, beat top-seeded Max Frey, a junior from Tulsa, Okla. (Holland Hall), 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 at Delavan Tennis Stadium.
 
In the Trinity-dominated semifinals, Frey beat fourth-seeded teammate Cory Kowal of Austin, Texas (Anderson), 4-6, 6-3, 6-3. Cocanougher defeated first-year player Greg Haugen of Austin, Texas (Bowie), 6-4, 6-2.
 
The “A” Doubles title went to top seeds Cocanougher and Kowal, in a 6-2, 3-6, 11-9 (tiebreak) victory over the No. 2 team of Frey and sophomore Erick DelaFuente of El Paso, Texas (Coronado).
 
Cocanougher will represent the Tigers in singles at the National Small College Championships Oct. 13-17 at Mobile, Ala. The doubles tandem of Cocanougher and Kowal will make its third appearance at the ITA national event. Last May, the Trinity duo advanced the NCAA Doubles Championship match.
