As to his college teams, Trivette states “my college athletes will be physically-fit, will be devoted students of tennis strategies, will improve weekly, and will hit more balls in practice per hour than any team. At this point, I’m not sure of the level of tennis at local colleges but I eagerly await the competition.”
