MUNCIE, Ind. - The Ball State women's tennis team (14-8, 4-2 MAC) hosts Bowling Green (10-6, 4-2 MAC) Friday afternoon at 1 p.m.  The Cardinals will then close out the week with their last Mid-American Conference regular season match versus Western Michigan (13-9, 2-4 MAC) Saturday with first serve at 1 p.m.  Both matches will be played at the Cardinal Creek Tennis Center, weather permitting.  If moved indoors, they will be played at the YMCA Tennis Center.

Ball State's matches against Bowling Green and Western Michigan will begin with three doubles matches and finish with six singles matches. The Cardinals are coming off of a 4-3 win over MAC rival Eastern Michigan Saturday for the first time since 1990.
