Ball State's gymnastics team is set to open the 2014 season at Illinois State Saturday under the direction of first-year head coach Joanna Saleem.

The Cardinals feature two seniors -- Kristin Vignola and Leah Wilson -- and six juniors.  In addition, Ball State's rosters has seven sophomores and eight freshmen.

Saleem is in her first year as the program's head coach after spending the 2013 season as a volunteer assistant at Ball State.  Saleem, a 2004 graduate of Indiana who earned a master's degree at West Virginia in 2007, served as the Mountaineers' assistant gymnastics coach from 2002-08.  She also served a stint as Iowa's assistant coach from 1999-2001 and was the head women's gymnastics coach at IU-Pennsylvania for the 1996-97 season.

Ball State tallied a 3-3 mark in the Mid-American Conference last season and will open the 2014 at Illinois State.  The Cardinals will host Iowa Jan. 17 in their first home meet of the season.
