After a five-day wait, sophomore Breaunna Addison’s first singles appearance at the ITA All-American Championships was short-lived. 

Addison played Thursday against No. 11 Kyle McPhillips of UCLA in the first round of the main draw. McPhillips eliminated her from championship contention in straight sets (7-5, 6-3). 

She also lost quickly Friday to No. 26 Nadia Ravita of Kentucky in the consolation round.

The All-American was not as prepared as she wanted to be against her ranked opponents.

“Breaunna fought hard but has battled through some physical challenges lately,” head coach Patty Fendick-McCain said in a statement. “She didn’t get to prepare the way she would have liked to in order to compete at her best. It was a tough week but I am confident she will bounce back like the champion that she is.”

The Longhorns finished 7-6 in Southern California. Addison and Horn won three in doubles competition. Freshman Ratnika Batra collected four singles matches, including two over ranked players.

Texas heads to Fort Worth on Oct. 17 for the ITA Texas Regional Championships.
