Addison makes it seven straight as women’s tennis tops SMU

Breaunna Addison continued her impressive streak in singles over the weekend, as she won her seventh straight match. The freshman improved to 12-5 in dual match singles.

Against SMU, Addison and Noel Scott led the way at No. 1 doubles. The pair nearly won in eight straight games, going up 7-0 before splitting the last two to win 8-1.

The Longhorns claimed the doubles point with an Aeriel Ellis/Elizabeth Begley win at No. 2 doubles, 8-3.

Begley put the Longhorns up 2-0 with a win at No. 4 singles over Elena Fayner (6-1, 6-1).

Her win came just before the rain drops did, as a little precipitation fell onto the courts, suspending play for 25 minutes.

When play resumed, Ellis, No. 41 singles, defeated Edyta Cieplucha 6-1, 6-4 after trailing in the second set 2-3.

With the 3-0 lead, Lina Padegimaite and Lana Groenvynck won at No. 5 and No. 6 singles to clinch the match for the Longhorns.

Scott attempted to complete the sweep of SMU, but lost in a third-set tiebreaker.

The 6-1 win moved the Longhorns to 9-8 on the season. The team will finish its home stand this weekend with three matches, including one against Big 12 opponent Texas Tech.
