After falling in the Atlantic-10 championship game to VCU, it appeared that the season was over for Dayton’s men’s tennis team. But junior Jordan Benjamin will have the chance to keep playing after becoming the first Dayton player to qualify for the NCAA men’s tennis singles championships.
Benjamin was undefeated from the No. 1 singles spot during the season, winning all 16 of his matches and earning him the A-10’s automatic bid to the tournament.
“Qualifying for the NCAA Championships means the world to me because of the hard work and sacrifices I’ve made over the three years that I’ve been a Flyer,” Benjamin said.

The tournament will take place at the Wake Forest Tennis Complex from May 23-28.
