Ball State's gymnastics team, which defeated the 16th-ranked team in the nation last week, will host Northern Illinois Friday at 7 p.m. in Irving Gym.
The meet will be the team's Alumni Meet.
The Cardinals managed a 194.5 to 194.175 victory last Friday over Central Michigan, which entered the meet ranked 16th in the nation as the defending Mid-American Conference Champion.
Under the direction of head coach Nadalie Walsh, Ball State will host Northern Illinois this week. The Huskies enter the meet 2-0 on the season after opening with wins over Illinois State and Bowling Green.
With the win over CMU, the Cardinals improved to 1-2 on the season and 1-0 in the MAC. Ball State's 194.500 team score tied for the 13th best mark in school history and was the team's top score since the 2002 season.
Friday's meet is free admission and will take place in Irving Gym, which is located in Ball State's Student Recreation and Wellness Center.
