Richardson honored again; Gold Rush climbs to 14th
March 10, 2009

     NEW ORLEANS — Terry Richardson made it two in a row, and he and his Xavier University of Louisiana men's tennis teammates reached another new level Tuesday.
     Richardson received his second consecutive Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Week award after going 1-1 in singles and 2-0 in doubles in dual matches against NCAA Division I opponents New Orleans and Jackson State. The senior from Ellenwood, Ga., took sole possession of the team lead with 10 singles victories and nine doubles victories in 2008-09.
     This is the first year of GCAC weekly tennis awards, and Xavier has won all three on the men's side.
     Meanwhile, the Gold Rush (8-3) climbed one spot to No. 14 — the highest ranking in its history — in the NAIA coaches poll. Xavier's Gold Nuggets (8-3) remained 17th in the women's poll.
     Both Xavier teams will compete next in the Auburn Montgomery Invitational at Montgomery, Ala. The three-day, all-NAIA event will begin Friday and include seven ranked women's teams and six ranked men's teams. Pairings will be announced Thursday.
