MAKING QUITE A RACKET:
XU sophomore Nour Abbes of Tunisia remained unbeaten as a collegiate singles player this weekend, defeating Georgia Gwinnett's Valeria Podda 6-3, 6-2 to win the ITA/USTA NAIA South Regional women's title. The victory qualified Abbes - who is 26-0 in singles at Xavier - for the USTA/ITA National Small College Championships at Sumter SC Oct. 9-12.
This action shot of Xavier long jumper Devinn Rolland taken by current XU Herald Editor-in-Chief Eric Craig during the 2014 GCAC Track & Field Championships at Tad Gormley Stadium last April has been named a Top 10 finalist for an Associated Collegiate Press' national photo excellence award. The winner will be announced next month. It's the first time the Herald has placed in any of the ACP award category.
