For the second-consecutive season and for the fourth time in program history, the University of Texas Women’s Tennis team has been crowned the NCAA Division I Women’s National Champions. Taking down rivals Oklahoma in the Championship Match, Texas showed their experience and poise under pressure to close out the victory.

Finishing 26-4 on the season, Texas demonstrated a complete turnaround to their season after starting 7-3 by going on to win 19 of their final 20 matches of the season including all of their past 12 matches.

In today’s match, the strength of the Longhorns doubles teams shined once again as Texas won on courts No. 2 and No. 3 to head into singles with a one-point lead. In singles, the Longhorns were able to fend off many pushes from Oklahoma before ultimately sealing the match with wins on courts No. 1, No. 2, and No. 5.

For Oklahoma, this marks the conclusion of the best season in program history. In addition to this NCAA National Championship appearance, the Sooners also were the 2022 ITA National Team Indoor Championship Runners-Up and also Big 12 Regular Season Champions.

With the back-to-back titles, Texas now joins the likes of only Stanford and Florida as the only repeat victors of the Division I Women’s NCAA National Championship.
