Lenz Selected For NCAA Singles Championship

INDIANAPOLIS - Baylor men’s tennis senior Julian Lenz will represent the Bears in the NCAA Singles Championship starting May 25 in Tulsa, Okla.

The NCAA Division I Men's Tennis Subcommittee made the announcement Wednesday that Lenz would be one of 50 at-large bids into the 64-man singles bracket and will be seeded in the 9-16 range of the bracket. Lenz’s selection marks the 15-consecutive year that the Bears have had at least one competitor in the NCAA singles draw.

The NCAA Singles Championship will be held at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center May 25-30 in Tulsa, Okla., following the conclusion of team championship play.

Lenz is currently ranked No. 16 in the country. The senior has racked up a 24-5 record overall and a 19-3 mark in dual-match play. He is 13-5 against ranked foes and went 3-0 in Big 12 Conference play and 2-0 at the Big 12 Championship. Lenz will be participating in his fourth-straight NCAA Singles Championship. He lost in the first round in his first two trips, before making it to the second round a season ago.

Lenz and doubles partner Will Little were also named the first alternates to the NCAA Doubles Championship. The duo is ranked No. 26 in the country, but have not competed together since March 20 after Little sustained an injury.

It was announced Tuesday that as a team the 43rd-ranked Bears will travel to Athens, Ga., where they will take on No. 21 Florida State at 9 a.m. CT Saturday, May 14, in the first round of the NCAA Team Championships at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex.
