• No. 19 Texas takes on Tulsa

    No 19. Texas will take on Tulsa at home this weekend in dual match play. Texas dropped to 11-6 this season after falling 3-4 to No. 21 Arkansas on Wednesday night.

    Freshman Harrison Scott dropped one spot to No. 113 in the ITA singles rankings on Monday. Scott has won four of his last six singles matches with two of those wins coming over ranked opponents.

    Senior Michael Riechmann and sophomore Adrian Ortiz are featured at No. 61 in the latest ITA doubles rankings. The duo is 8-6 overall and 8-5 in dual match-play this season. 

    In singles, redshirt freshman Julian Zlobinsky has an 8-3 record while sophomore Adrian Ortiz is currently 9-3 for the season at Nos. 3 and 4 after defeating Arkansas senior Santiago Munoz, 6-1, 6-0 this past week. 

    “We’ve just got to keep playing and keep going,” said head coach Michael Center after the Longhorns lost on Wednesday. “We’ll be excited and ready to play again on Saturday against Tulsa.”

    Match play will begin at 1 p.m. on Saturday against Tulsa at the Westwood Country Club. 

  • Women's track and field to face No. 4 USC at Cardinal & Gold Challenge

    The Longhorns trip to southern California has no shortage of firepower, even if it’s a small meet. No. 7 Longhorns will join No. 10 Florida, No. 16 Ohio State and host No. 4 USC for the Cardinal & Gold Challenge this weekend. 

    Texas is coming off an impressive performance with two wins in their meet at the TCU Invitational. Freshman Asa Garcia won the triple jump with a mark of 12.91 meters which was good enough to put her in the lead for the best jump in the country and to win her first Big 12 Athlete of the Week award. Garcia’s leap ranks her sixth in school history. 

    Senior Morolake Akinsoun and freshman Teahna Daniels headline the field in the women’s 200m. Daniels became only the second freshman to ever win the 60-meter at the NCAA Indoor Championships with a time of 7.11 seconds. 

    Texas’ team will also compete in the 4x100 meter relay. Florida, USC and Texas had some of the quickest times in the country last year.
