February 16, 2009

     NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana canceled a trip to Florida for men's and women's tennis matches against two NAIA opponents, but the Gold Rush and Gold Nuggets added two matches apiece to their schedules against NCAA Division I opponents.
     The Gold Rush, 4-1 and ranked 15th in the NAIA, added a home match next Sunday (Feb. 22) at 1 p.m. against Florida A&M at UNO Wow Café Tennis Center. The Gold Nuggets, ranked 18th, added a 1 p.m. home match April 18 against McNeese State with the venue still to be announced. And both teams will play Grambling at 2 p.m. on Feb. 25 at a neutral site: Greenwood Park Tennis Center in Baker, La., a Baton Rouge suburb.
     Those duals replace matches Feb. 27 at Embry-Riddle in Daytona Beach, Fla., and Feb. 28 against Webber International at Altamonte Springs, Fla.
     The next competition for both Xavier teams will be a pair of Gulf Coast Athletic Conference duals on Saturday at UNO — Belhaven at 9 a.m. and Tougaloo 1 p.m.
