Richardson eliminated in Region XIII tennis tourney
September 20, 2008

Results:  Men

     MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Xavier University of Louisiana's Terry Richardson lost 6-1, 6-4 Saturday to Auburn Montgomery's third-seeded Francisco Redondo in the men's singles quarterfinals of the ITA/NAIA Region XIII Championships.
     It was the second consecutive Xavier loss in the tournament to Redondo, who defeated Steffen Osborn in the second round Friday.
     "Terry played a tough match," Xavier coach Alan Green said. "He was a couple of points away from winning the second set. Redondo beat Terry last spring (6-1, 6-2 on March 17), but Terry has closed the gap between them."
     Redondo was 15th in singles and first in doubles in the ITA's final NAIA rankings this past season and a combined 7-0 in singles and doubles at the NAIA National Championship, which AUM won for the third consecutive season.
     Xavier's next tournament will be the HBCU National Championships at Atlanta, Ga. The four-day event will start Thursday.
