No. 7 Texas comes back home for a matchup against Wichita State


Home is where the wins are for the No. 7 Longhorns. 

And as they begin their three-match home stand against Wichita State (3–4) this weekend, they hope to defend their undefeated record of 7–0 at the Weller Indoor Tennis Center.

Texas returned to Austin on Sunday after a grueling three-day competition at the ITA National Team Indoors in Charlottesville, Virginia. Texas went 2–1 in the tournament, defeating then-No. 6 Florida before falling short of an upset against No. 3 Wake Forest in the quarterfinals. But the Longhorns bounced back with a win over No. 12 Oklahoma State during the consolation round.

“To lose the match against Wake Forest but then to come back the way we did against Oklahoma State was really impressive,” head coach Michael Center said. “Everyone fought hard.”

Despite having hot hands on their own court, the Longhorns must find success during their upcoming rematch against Wake Forest on March 4 in order to keep their winning streak alive in Austin.

The Longhorns hope to find success during the second half of their season and build momentum in their matchup against Wichita State before facing the Demon Deacons.

“Our guys are growing and developing,” Center said. “The best is yet to come.”
