Texas juniors Lloyd Glasspool and Soren Hess-Olesen defeated No. 3 Junior Ore and Jackson Withrow of Texas A&M with a 8-7(6) win to claim the USTA/ITA Texas Regional Championship doubles title Tuesday.

With the victory, Glasspool and Hess-Olesen improved to 10-1 together on the season, including a 4-1 record against ranked opponents.  With the regional title, Glasspool and Hess-Olesen received an automatic bid to the USTA/ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships in New York, which starts Nov. 7. 

They join freshman George Goldhoff, who claimed his automatic bid by advancing to the singles quarterfinals of the ITA All-American Championships earlier in the month.

The Longhorns finished the Regional Championship with a 20-10 mark in singles play and a 13-3 doubles record. Texas is now 49-35 on the season in singles play, including a 13-21 record against ranked opponents. The team is 26-10 in doubles play with a 4-4 record against ranked competition.

Texas will host the UT Invitational Oct. 25-27.
