After three weeks of travel, the Longhorns returned to Whitaker courts with a top five upset, defeating nationally ranked No. 4 Michigan 4-3.

No. 73 Texas started the afternoon strong, achieving the doubles point with wins from 26th-ranked tandem senior Breaunna Addison and sophomore Dani Wagland and duo Lana Groenvynck and Katie Poluta.

Texas gained the first singles match point at the fifth position thanks to freshman Daniella Roldan’s win over Michigan’s Sara Remynse 6-2 and 6-4. Both teams gained a singles point soon after, bumping the score to 3-2.  Two-time All-American Addison won 6-2, 6-3 over Wolverine’s Ronit Yurovsky at first position.  

Wagland took Michigan’s Mira Ruder-Hook to a third set at third position. She finalized Texas’ win after losing the first set 2-6 but responding with two 6-3 victories.

Michigan came to Austin after beating Baylor on Thursday night and then-No. 2 North Carolina last weekend but wasn’t able to keep the winning streak going.

Texas returns to Whitaker courts on Thursday to face Pennsylvania at 2 p.m.
