Gabriela Talaba’s historic college career came to an end on Friday morning, as the Lady Raider senior fell in the NCAA Singles Sweet 16.

"Gabby played a great match today. We struggled a bit playing with a lead, but credit the other player's willingness to go for it in the big moments," Todd Petty, head coach, said in a Texas Tech Athletics news release. "It's sad to see the greatest player in Tech history go, but we all look forward to seeing a lot more great tennis from her."

Talaba put her name into the Lady Raider record books, during her four-year career.

She became the programs first ITA All-American back in 2017 and after advancing to the Sweet 16 Thursday, she earned her second straight ITA All-American honors. 

She was also the first Lady Raider in program history to advance to the Round of 16 in the NCAA Singles Championships.
