KALAMAZOO, Mich. - The Ball State women's tennis team (13-10, 4-3 MAC) won a hard fought 4-3 battle at Western Michigan (11-11, 4-2 MAC) Saturday afternoon at West Hills.

Western Michigan took the doubles point winning on courts two and three.  Ball State's twosome of Courtney Wild and Courtney Earnest won their match 8-6 at No. 1 doubles over Caroline Aleck and Kathleen Hawkins.

The Cardinals started singles action down 1-0 to the Broncos but Earnest quickly knotted the match after taking down Maggie Remynse in straight sets at the No. 2 position.  Wild would then put Ball State up 2-1 over Western Michigan after her 7-6 (9-7), 6-2 victory versus Nini Sujashvili.

 Western Michigan would win on court four to tie the match again 2-2.  Kristel Sanders answered quickly with the 6-3, 1-6, 6-1 win against Jill Pastunink at the No. 4 spot which gave Ball State back the lead.  Bethany Moore would then clinch the conference win on court five for Ball State after winning in three sets over Caroline Aleck.
