The Greyhounds swept their way through the ITA Division II Women’s National Team Indoor Championship and left with the title. Since then they have added another win to their resume – this time a 7-0 win over Wayne State (prev. 22) – to bring their season record to 8-0. 
 
Benefitting from a runner-up finish at Indoors, the Southwest Baptist Bearcats rose seven spots to crack the top 10 of the rankings. Since Indoors, they have gone 3-1 only dropping a close 4-3 match to Angelo State (prev. 13). The Angelo State match was a rematch of the Indoors semifinal were SBU edged out ASU in a 4-3 battle.
