The ITA Men’s All American Championship wrapped up Sunday, with several Longhorns making notable tournament runs.

In his first tournament at Texas, freshman George Goldhoff advanced from the qualifier all the way to the quarterfinals of the main draw where he fell to No. 38 Julian Lenz of Baylor in straight sets (7-5, 6-4). Goldhoff became the first Longhorn to advance to the ITA quarterfinals since 1998, knocking off four nationally ranked opponents including the top-rated player in the country. In the process Goldhoff received a bid to November’s USTA/ITA National Indoor Championships in New York.

No. 101-ranked junior Lloyd Glasspool fell in the Main Draw Consolation quarterfinals in straight sets to No. 95 Daniil Proskura from Alabama (6-3, 7-6 (9-7))

In the finals of the main draw Doubles Consolation, Glasspool/Soren Hess-Olesen fell to No. 10 Guigon/Kopinski of Illinois in three sets (6-4, 0-6, 6-1).

Overall, Texas concluded the tournament 18-12 in singles overall including 10-8 against ranked opponents. The team went 6-6 in doubles including 3-3 against
