MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Xavier University of Louisiana's women's tennis team, ranked 11th in the NAIA, lost 8-1 Thursday to Lee (Texas) and 5-2 to NAIA No. 10 Brenau in the Small College Blue-Gray Tournament at Montgomery, Ala.

Xavier's men lost 9-0 to top-ranked Auburn-Montgomery and 5-2 to Abraham Baldwin.

The Gold Nuggets (9-5) competed without their No. 1 singles player, Dominique Bell, who returned home to Jackson, Miss., because of the death of her brother. Xavier's men are 7-8.

Lee (15-1), a two-year college in Baytown, Texas, earned its 15th consecutive victory and fifth of the season against a four-year institution.

The losses eliminated both Xavier teams from the tournament, but they will remain in Montgomery and play another eliminated school, Shorter, at 11 a.m. Friday. Shorter's men are ranked 13th in the NAIA, and the women are 18th.
