DAYTON, Ohio - The Ball State women's tennis team improved to 5-1 on the season after posting back-to-back wins over Wright State (7-0) and Dayton (5-2) Friday.  The 5-1 start marks one of the best starts for the Cardinals since the 2007-08.

Against Dayton, the Cardinals would fall behind early after losing the doubles point. 

In singles, Ball State took control early, with Courtney Earnest winning quickly in straight sets over Maureen Stevens at the No. 3 spot.  Kristel Sanders and Bethany Moore would take down their opponents in their respective positions to put Ball State up 3-1 over the Flyers.   Then Ashlyn Rang would seal the victory at No. 6 singles after posting a 6-0, 6-1 win over Erin Fibrandt.

The Cardinals started the day strong after sweeping Wright State, 7-0 in the morning match. 

Ball State took the doubles point with wins from Courtney Wild and Earnest at the No. 1 position defeating Kayla Tuscany and Alex Bastock by a score of 8-0.  Moore paired up with Kristel Sanders also winning 8-0 against Taylor Hines and Amy Nini at the No. 2 spot.

After that, the Cardinals took their momentum into singles action winning all six matches in straight sets.  Earnest did not give up a game in her 6-0, 6-0 victory over Hine at No. 3 singles. 

The Ball State women's tennis team continues non-conference action when it hosts in-state rival Butler Thursday at 2 p.m. in the Muncie YMCA Tennis Center.
