Addison returns home for Spring Invite


Sophomore Breaunna Addison gets a homecoming of sorts today as she returns to action in the Miami Spring Invite.

Addison burst onto the college tennis scene at last year’s Invite with a 3-0 performance in singles play. In just her first semester at Texas, Addison became an All-American in singles with a 30-7 record. She also appeared in the semifinals of the NCAA Championship.

Addison, ranked No. 22 in singles, will need another season like that if she and the Longhorns want to return to the NCAA Tournament.

The team enters the spring season 17th in the ITA Team Rankings. They face a brutal non-conference schedule, with 10 of their first 12 opponents currently ranked inside the top 36.

Their first challenge will be No. 9 Miami (FL) followed by either No. 16 Vanderbilt or No. 31 Memphis.

The Miami Spring Invite begins Friday and will conclude Sunday.
