EAST LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan State women's tennis team lost its first match of the season Sunday, falling at home to Ball State 4-3.

"It's a good wake up call for us," head coach Simone Jardim said. "We've got to go to work now. People need to be able to step up when we need them."

MSU (2-1) won the doubles point, but was unable to hold on to its quick 1-0 lead and surrendered four of the six singles matches.

Junior Catherine Parenteau finished the day 2-0, competing in the lineup for both doubles and singles. She and Anna Zelechonok defeated Ayaka Terashi and Courtney Wild 6-3 on the third doubles court. Parenteau also won her singles match on the No. 3 court in three sets, defeating Kristel Sanders 6-1, 6-7, 10-6.
