COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Benedikt Dorsch added an exclamation point to his stellar Baylor career by claiming the NCAA singles championship on Monday at the George P. Mitchell Tennis Center on the campus of Texas A&M University.

Dorsch, a senior from Weiden, Germany, posted a two-set win in the championship match over the University of San Diego's Pierrik Ysern, 6-2, 7-6(6).

The win by Dorsch gave Baylor a sweep of NCAA singles championships. Baylor freshman Zuzana Zemenova won the women's title on Saturday in Athens, Ga. That feat has happened only four other times, three of which were by Stanford.

In addition, the win by Dorsch gives Baylor back-to-back NCAA singles championships, Benjamin Becker won the 2004 crown. That has now happened only twice in the past 30 years.

The Tennis Channel will air Zemenova's match on Saturday, June 4, at 7 p.m. CT.

The Tennis Channel also will broadcast Dorsch's match at 7 p.m. CT on Sunday, June 5, and at 11 a.m. CT on Tuesday, June 7.
