The Longhorns brought four players to Portland for this weekend’s USTA College Invitational but failed to win a match.

On Friday, senior Elizabeth Begley and junior Lina Padegimaite lost in doubles to UCLA’s Courtney Dolehide and Catherine Harrison (8-5).

Padegimaite contested Duke’s Alyssa Smith in singles but lost 7-5, 6-7 (6), 7-5. Junior Annat Rabinovich and sophomore Lana Groenvynck lost in straight sets.

Saturday was the same for Texas. Of the four matches the Longhorns competed in, they won only one set, which Padegimaite earned, giving her two for the weekend.

Begley was the only Longhorn to compete on Sunday and dropped a 6-2, 6-2 decision to Texas A&M’s Anna Mamalat.

The team will have to regroup in time for the Longhorn Invitational this week. Texas will also send two players, sophomore Breaunna Addison and freshman Pippa Horn, to New York on Thursday to compete in the ITA National Indoor Collegiate Championship.
