Kansas tennis falls to Texas



Kansas junior junior Maria Belen Ludueña hits a forehand during her number one singles match against Texas, Sunday afternoon at the Jayhawk Tennis Center.

Freshman Morgan Barnhill earned the only victory for Kansas University in its 6-1 Senior Day tennis loss to No. 25 Texas on Sunday at Jayhawk Tennis Center.

Barnhill beat Lina Padegimaite, 2-6, 6-2, 1-0 (10-7) at No. 6 singles for Kansas’ lone win.

Texas (10-9 overall, 3-3 Big 12) swept the doubles matches and won the Nos. 1-5 singles matches in straight sets.

It was the final home match for KU seniors Claire Dreyer, Paulina Los and Dylan Windom, who were recognized after the Jayhawks fell to 11-8, 2-4.

Kansas will travel Friday to Texas and Sunday to Texas Christian, then conclude the regular season April 19 at Kansas State.
