Longhorn Men’s Tennis takes on Wichita State

Brianna Holt

After returning from a long week in North Carolina and a close win last Thursday against Wake Forest, Texas will compete against Wichita State this Wednesday. The match will take place at the Penick-Allison Tennis Center in Austin at 6 p.m.

The Longhorns have been surprisingly successful this season, currently ranked at No. 7, the highest-ranked team in the ITA Texas Region. Their recent five-match winning streak was broken by UNC, but their last match against Wake Forest made up for the loss. They have won five matches against top-25 opponents this season and currently have a winning record of 14-3. 

This Wednesday will be the first of Texas’ final five matches at the Penick-Allison Tennis Center. After their final match on April 5, the facility will be demolished to make room for the construction of the new medical center being built at Texas.
