No. 19 Texas goes head to head with UTSA


The Longhorns continue their five-match home stand Saturday with a day-night doubleheader against UTSA at the Polo Tennis Club to close out nonconference play.

No. 21 Texas is now 13-6 for the season after defeating Tulsa and Incarnate Word last weekend.

“We’re getting into April and May now so let’s hope that we can play our best tennis now at the end of the season,” head coach Michael Center said after last weekend’s match.

Texas has now won nine of their last ten matches, with four of those wins coming against teams ranked 30th or higher in the Oracle/ITA Collegiate Tennis Rankings.

Freshman Harrison Scott has won six of his last eight singles matches with two of those wins coming over ranked opponents and is up to No. 113 in the ITA rankings.

Redshirt freshman Julian Zlobinsky earned two more wins last weekend giving him a 10-3 record. Sophomore Adrian Ortiz is currently 11-3 for the season after defeating Tulsa senior Carlos Bautista, 6-4, 7-6. 

Senior Michael Riechmann and sophomore Adrian Ortiz are featured at No. 61 in the latest ITA doubles rankings. The duo is 8–7 this season in dual match play.

Match play will begin at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Saturday at the Polo Tennis Club.
