RICHMOND, Ind. — The Earlham College men's tennis team is headed back to St. Louis.

Announced on Monday, the Quakers (16-6) are scheduled to face Coe College (24-7) for
the second straight year at Washington University in their opening match of the NCAA
Division III National Tournament. The contest gets underway at 10 a.m. All times are
Eastern.

Ranked 10th in the latest Intercollegiate Tennis Association Division III Men's
Central Region Poll, the Quakers earned their fourth straight Heartland Collegiate
Athletic Conference automatic bid to the tournament with a 5-1 win over Transylvania

Coe, which is the No. 8 team in the region, beat Luther College 5-2 to claim its
third straight Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference title. In last year's NCAA

Wisconsin-Whitewater 7-2. Coe fell to Case Western 8-1 and UW-Whitewater 6-3.

The winner of Friday's match faces the nation's No. 2 team from Washington (19-2) on
Saturday at 1 p.m. The Bears, who are the top-ranked team in the region, won the
University Athletic Association Championship with a 7-2 win over Carnegie Mellon
