UT Men's tennis team with the 2019 NCAA Championship trophy.

The UT Tower will be lit in burnt orange with a numeral “1” on all four sides this evening (May 27) to commemorate the Texas Men’s Tennis program’s 2019 National Championship.

Per campus tradition, the University recognizes UT sports programs with a burnt orange lighting of the campus landmark with the numeral “1” appearing on the building’s four sides when a Longhorns team claims an NCAA team title.

On May 19, the Longhorns claimed the first National Championship in program history with a 4-1 win over Wake Forest in the finals of the NCAA Championship at the USTA National Campus in Orlando, Fla.
