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.
