Collin picked up a few wins in the Southwest JUCO Tournament held in Plano, April 12 (photos), before a second day of competition was rained out. 

Collin's women finished sixth in the tournament with six victories and the men had four wins to close out their side of the tournament in seventh. Tyler Junior College, Seward College and Cowley College finished first, second and third in the tournament. 

The women's team recorded a pair of doubles wins against Seward College with the teams of Nicole Maldonado/Sonja Dobrowolski and Andrea Farris/Sydney Albro. Individual wins for the women's team came from Dobrowolski, Maldonado, Farris and Rebekah Clark. Each of the individual wins came against opponents from Laredo College. 

John Edwards, Juan Carlos Garrido and Kameron Dehart each picked up individual wins in the tournament. Hector Flores and Abhiram Venkatachalam notched a win over a doubles pair from Barton College. 

"Every competition the men and women are getting closer and closer," Coach Marty Berryman said.
