Posted January 21st, 2020


Chrisitan Sigsgaard tied a Big 12 record as he earned player of the week honors for the sixth time on Tuesday.

It’s the first time he earned the weekly honor this season but the sixth time in his career.

Teammate Yuya Ito took the honor last week.


Sigsgaard had two singles victories over the last week, one over No. 4 Sam Riffice of Florida and another over Tom Vaise of SMU. Sigsgaard’s win over Riffice helped the Longhorns beat the No. 1 team in the country.

In addition to fall play, Sigsgaard is 13-3 in singles competition this season.

The Longhorns open their home dual match schedule Saturday and Sunday when they host Indiana, Florida State and Vanderbilt for the ITA Kickoff Weekend.
