Northwestern’s match against Texas Christian University has been canceled due to inclement weather in the Chicago area, the program announced Wednesday evening.

The No. 15 Wildcats (11-1) were scheduled to played the No. 8 Horned Frogs (6-2) on Thursday in the first match ever played between the two schools. TCU was unable to make the trip from Fort Worth, Texas, to Evanston and there was no time when the teams would be able to make up the match.   

NU has never beaten a top-10 team since the ITA began ranking teams in 1981, and would have gotten a chance to do so had the poor weather not affected its match with TCU.

The Cats’ next opponent will be Harvard (8-4) on Sunday when the team will look to extend its 8-match winning streak before the start of Big Ten play against Illinois on March 12.
