STEPHENVILLE, Texas — In the first two months of the Western Athletic Conference award-winning performance, Tarleton is already becoming a consistent winner.
The Texans won the October WAC Awards to claim their second and third accolades of the young season of the four total the WAC has announced so far this year. For October, Celia Vaudiau was named singles player of the month, while Elsa Drink and Ximena Morales were named Doubles Team of the Month.
