After receiving a first-round bye in the 20 pair doubles draw, No. 2 seed Lloyd Glasspool-Soren Hess-Olesen defeated Max de Vroome-Eric Johnson of USC (8-4) to advance to the quarterfinals. 

In the quarterfinals, they will face Benjamin Lock-Marco Nunez from Florida State on Friday. Glasspool-Hess-Olesen are now 11-2 as a pair this fall, receiving an automatic bid in this tournament by winning the USTA/ITA Texas Regional Championship last month.

In the first round of the singles draw, freshman George Goldhoff fell to No. 85 Axel Alvarez in straight sets (7-5,6-1). Goldhoff is now in the consolation bracket of the singles draw. He is the first Longhorn to reach the ITA All-American Tournament quarterfinals since 1998.  Goldhoff is now 11-4 this fall, including a victory over No. 1 Mikelis Libietis of Tennessee.
