Women’s tennis: preview of Abilene Christian

Reanna Zuniga

Over Easter weekend, No. 29 Texas added two new non-conference Tuesday matches to its schedule, including this week’s match against Abilene Christian University. After a tough loss to No. 19 Ohio State, the Longhorns look to take home a win on their home court.

The Wildcats have gone 1–4 on the road this season and are still waiting to claim their first road-win against a conference team. Abilene Christian is part of the Southland Conference and will play Texas first in a string of three nonconference matches.

No. 29 Texas has the advantage going into the matchup with multiple past victories against unranked teams under its belt so far this season, including victories against Iowa State and West Virginia.

No. 47 Texas junior Breaunna Addison will look to win against Abilene Christian junior Kaysie Hermsdorf, her sixth-straight singles match at No. 1 singles. Hermsdorf is the leading singles winner, alongside junior Nada Marjanovic. Both players have nine singles wins so far this season.

The Longhorns will take on the Wildcats at the Whitaker Tennis Courts at 4 p.m.
