MUNCIE, Ind. - The Ball State men's tennis team earned a 7-0 sweep in its double header Saturday at the Muncie YMCA Tennis Center.  The Cardinals defeated Eastern Illinois in the afternoon match and then closed out the night with a victory over Dayton.

With the win the Cardinals improve their overall record to 3-2 on the season.  Eastern Illinois would fall to 0-1 overall while Dayton is now 1-1 on the season.

The Cardinals opened the day of competition with a 7-0 victory over Eastern Illinois.  Ball State took the early 1-0 edge over Eastern Illinois after Dalton Albertin paired up with teammate Ray Leonard to earn the 8-6 victory over Michael Sperry and Warren Race at No. 1 doubles.  At the No. 2 spot Alexandre Brym alongside Imanol Arconada defeated Kevin Bauman and Robert Skolik by a score of 8-3.

Ball State claimed all six singles wins all in straight sets.  Albertin did not lose a game to his opponent after beating EIU's Race 6-0, 6-0 at the No. 2 slot.

After their first match, Ball State also swept Dayton winning 7-0 in the night cap.  The Cardinals took the doubles point as Albertin and Leonard won their second doubles match on the day at the No. 1 slot.  The No. 3 doubles tandem of Patrick Elliott and Austin Sansone were also victorious as they defeated Colin Bemier and Josh Malyon, 8-3.

The Cardinal would take down the Flyers in singles action winning all six matches. 

The Ball State men's tennis team will be back in action when it plays its third Big Ten opponent of the season Sunday, Feb. 3 at Indiana.  First serve is at 3:30 p.m.
