No. 7 Emory's singles play lifts it by No. 5 JHU

ATLANTA -- Emory came through with a solid performance from its singles contingent Saturday afternoon, posting a well-deserved victory against fifth-ranked Johns Hopkins. The Eagles raised their overall record to 13-5 following a 7-2 decision against the Blue Jays, who slipped to 7-3.

JHU responded by winning the remaining two doubles matches to take a one-point lead in the match.

The Eagles regrouped to win all six singles affairs, starting with Wagner's 6-4, 6-0, triumph versus Jeremy Dubin at No. 4 singles, his 15th victory in 18 outings this spring, which enabled Emory to tie the match. Sophomore Rafe Mosetick followed shortly after with a 7-5, 6-1, outcome against Tanner Brown at third singles, giving the Eagles the lead for good. In a battle between the No. 2- and No. 3-ranked players in the Atlantic South Region, Ruderman put Emory one point from clinching the match after his 6-4, 7-6, win versus Buxbaum at No. 1 singles, upping his spring record to 15-3.
