Effect of Division Shift on Trinity University Tennis Program
The Trinity University Tennis program was a Division 1 powerhouse for decades, but that all changed in 1991. The school board decided to shift the team to Division 3 to join the rest of Trinity sports teams who had all shifted previously. The team was no longer the same tennis giant that took on big state schools across the country for the national championship year after year. The shift to a lower division was not completely negative for the program or the school. There were many positives that came out of the move to Division 3 that gave the program a new identity.
