Men’s tennis heads to California

The Longhorns (4-1) travel to California this weekend looking to bounce back from their narrow defeat at the hands of the Kentucky Wildcats last weekend during the ITA Kick-off Regional Final in Lexington, Ky.

It will be a difficult task as they travel to California to face No. 2 University of Southern California in Los Angeles on Friday, followed by a match against Pepperdine in Malibu, Calif., on Sunday.

The Longhorns fell in a narrow match last week against the Wildcats, as Texas’ two best singles players No. 31 Soren Hess-Olesen and No. 43 Daniel Whitehead were both upset. Doubles partners David Holiner and Daniel Whitehead also lost in their doubles match.

To compete against the USC Trojans, the Longhorns will need to be firing on all cylinders with top-notch play from their top players.
