Men’s tennis to face Rice and Arkansas this weekend

Matt Warden

The Longhorns (1-0) look to continue winning when they travel to Houston to face Rice on Friday before hosting Arkansas on Sunday afternoon.

Texas, ranked No. 20 in the country after winning its 17th consecutive season-opening match, will be led by No. 24 singles player George Goldhoff and the No. 5 doubles team made up of Lloyd Glasspool and Soren Hess-Olesen. 

Texas has held the advantage against both opponents in recent history, winning eight consecutive matches against the Owls and six of the last seven contests against  the Razorbacks. 

After this weekend, the Longhorns will compete in the ITA Kickoff Weekend event in Nashville, Tenn.
