This is Emory's second win this season against Redlands, ranked No. 10 in the nation by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association. Emory was a 7-2 winner in California on March 25.

The Eagles, ranked No. 1 nationally, are 11-1 this season against national top-20 Division III teams. They have won the last two NCAA national team championships.
