For immediate release . . . September 6, 2007

NEW ORLEANS — The Xavier University of Louisiana men's and women's tennis teams will compete in two September tournaments, Coach Alan Green said Thursday.

The Gold Rush and Gold Nuggets will play in the ITA/NAIA Region XIII Championships at Lagoon Park Tennis Center in Montgomery, Ala., on Sept. 21-23 and the HBCU National Championships at Sugar Creek Tennis Center in Atlanta on Sept. 27-30.

Xavier returns five men and five women who were All-Gulf Coast Athletic Conference this past season, including three-time GCAC Player of the Year Dominique Bell on the women's team and GCAC Player of the Year Terry Richardson on the men's. Broussard, a senior from Jackson, Miss., was first-team NAIA All-America in 2007.

The other returning All-GCAC players are Alexandra Broussard, Yuliem Dominguez, Colleen McArthur and Jihanna Mughnee of the Gold Nuggets and Vusumzi Kempele, Cameron Knowles, Mario Myles and Miroslav Vukicevic of the Gold Rush. Xavier won the GCAC men's and women's championships in 2007 and ranked in the top 25 of the final NAIA polls.

After those September tournaments, Xavier will begin the dual-match portion of its schedule in January.
