April 7, 2009

     NEW ORLEANS — The Xavier University of Louisiana men's tennis team remained 13th in the NAIA coaches poll released Tuesday.
     The ranking is the highest in program history for the Gold Rush (13-4), which will carry a five-match win streak into an 8 a.m. Thursday match at 15th-ranked Shorter in Rome, Ga.
     Xavier's women (13-5) are 16th, one spot lower than their season high in the March 24 rankings. The Gold Nuggets will play Shorter, ranked 17th, at the same time and place.
     Both Xavier teams will play Union (Ky.) at 1 p.m. Friday at Mount Berry, Ga. — Union's men are unbeaten and ranked 10th, and the women are 22nd — and the Gold Rush will remain in Mount Berry for a 1 p.m. Saturday dual against 16th-ranked Berry.
     It's the 32nd consecutive ranking, dating to February 2004, that Xavier's women have been in the top 25. The men have been in 15 consecutive rankings dating to April 2007. The Nuggets' streak does not include 2006, when Xavier did not compete due to the effects of Hurricane Katrina.
