The walkie-talkies worn on the hips of tournament personnel crackled to life: ‘Texas Wesleyan has entered the building.’

The opposing teams,—most of whom brought only a handful of players, some in a mishmash of college sweatshirts,—stopped to watch in awe and dread.

‘We are the New York Yankees of table tennis,’ said Texas Wesleyan University Coach Jasna Rather. ‘Everybody hates our guts.'”
