MUNCIE, Ind. - The Ball State University women's tennis team (4-3) dropped a 5-2 decision in dual action to Cleveland State Friday night at the Muncie YMCA Tennis Center.

The Cardinals came out of the gates strong, as they won the doubles points to take an early 1-0 over the Vikings.  At No. 1 doubles Courtney Wild paired up with Kristel Sanders to defeat Catrine Bjerrehus and Maria Lazaris by a score of 9-8 (4).  On court two the duo of Ashley Rang and Sarah Hebble captured an 8-4 win over Alexandra Bush and Alex Power.
