In singles against the Bulls, Dornbusch cruised to a 6-1, 6-2 victory and was the first BU player to finish, giving the Bears a commanding 2-0 lead. On Saturday in Baylor’s first Big 12 match, Dornbusch and Galeano again provided the clinching point in doubles with an 8-2 victory at the No. 3 spot. In singles action vs. the Red Raiders, Dornbusch again got a straight set win, 6-3, 6-3, to extend the Baylor lead to 3-0. Overall, Dornbusch is 7-5 in dual-match play and 9-1 in doubles play with three different partners.
