DEKALB, Ill. - The No. 9 Ball State University women's tennis team captured a 4-3 victory over No. 8 Toledo, Thursday afternoon at the Mid-American Conference Tournament. 

The Cardinals fell early on in doubles action on court one after Courtney Wild and Ashlyn Rang fell 8-1 to Kelsey Anonsen and Lexy Pitt.  Ball State's No. 2 doubles tandem of Paola Rodriguez and Sarah Hebble found themselves down 6-1 but fought back winning five straight games to tie the match 6-6.  Toledo would then go up 7-7 but then scored two straight games to win the doubles point for the Cardinals and the match 9-7.
