While students were on spring break, the Longhorns had a successful week of action. Texas went 2–1, beating both Princeton and Kansas State but falling to Kansas. 

The win against Princeton kept Texas undefeated at home, and it tacked on its first victory in enemy territory in Manhattan, Kansas on Sunday afternoon. 

The Longhorns’ No. 13 doubles tandem of senior Breaunna Addison and sophomore Dani Wagland beat K-State freshmen Ana Garcia Navas and Millie Stretton 6-4. The other Longhorn duo of senior Lana Groenvynck and freshman Katie Poluta pulled out a win over juniors Maria Panaite and Palma Juhasz 6-1 to sweep the doubles point for Texas. 

“Bree, Neda [Koprcina] and Dani were characteristically ferocious in closing out our first Big 12 win,” head coach Howard Joffe said.

Wagland gained the Longhorns’ second point at third singles over Stretton with No. 8 Addison and junior Koprcina following suit to carry Texas to the 4-0 sweep. 

The remaining courts were suspended due to rain. 

Texas returns home to face No. 36 Northwestern on March 28 at Whitaker Courts.
