The Aggies enter the weekend with a pair of ranked singles players; No. 5 Arthur Rinderknech and No. 29 Shane Vinsant. The duo are ranked No. 12 in the doubles poll, but have yet to feature together in a dual match this season.

Lunkin and Arconada played an unfinished match Sunday against Lamar, the maroon and white pair were up 4-3 when the double point was clinched.
A&M opened the season last weekend defeating No. 66 UTSA, 6-1, and Lamar, 7-0, at Mitchell. Texas A&M head coach Steve Denton played 12 different singles players across the two matches, going 11-1 in those matches. The Aggies swept the doubles points as Rinderknech and senior Jackson Withrow went 2-0 on doubles court one, while Vinsant and sophomore AJ Catanzariti were 2-0 on the second court. Junior James Martell and a freshman trio of Sam Giammalva, Aleksandre Bakshi and Henry Gordon all collected their first collegiate dual victories last weekend.
