MUNCIE, Ind. - The Ball State women's tennis team opens the 2014 Mid-American Conference season Friday when it hosts Northern Illinois at the Cardinal Creek Tennis Center beginning at 1 p.m., weather permitting.

Ball State will face the Huskies in its first league match playing three doubles and six singles matches.  The Cardinals won their lone meeting over the Huskies in 2013 in DeKalb, Ill., by a score of 5-2.  Ball State ended the MAC regular season with a 5-3 record and advanced to the semifinals of the MAC Tournament after taking down Western Michigan for the first time since 1998. 

Ball State returns six letterwinners from last season.  The Cardinals welcome back junior Courtney Wild who for the second-straight season received First Team All-Mid-American Conference honors.  Wild ended the season with 20-5 dual mark and a 6-4 league record.  She was also named to the All-MAC Tournament team.  Courtney Earnest will also return for the Cardinals after earning Second Team All-MAC accolades last year.  Earnest ended the season with a 19-6 dual record and went 6-2 in league play.

After this weekend, the Ball State women's tennis team will continue league action when it hosts Miami Saturday, March 29 at 1 p.m. in the Cardinal Creek Tennis Center weather permitting or indoors at the Muncie YMCA Tennis Center.
