Two other GLVC teams, Drury University and the University of Indianapolis, are also ranked in the poll at 15th and 22nd respectively.

The team has five upperclassmen on its nine-man roster, including senior Jack Joyce, who ended last season 23-4 in singles.

Joyce is ranked sixth as an individual in the poll.

Also returning are junior Aaron Barris and senior Joel Stern, who rank sixth and ninth respectively.

The Eagles face Indiana University Southeast at the Evansville Tennis Center in their first match of the spring season.
