April 30, 2010

     NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana reached its ninth consecutive women's final and its eighth straight men's final in the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference tennis tournament at the University of New Orleans Tennis Center on Friday.
     The Gold Nuggets (15-13), the defending GCAC champion and No. 19 in the NAIA, defeated LSU-Shreveport 5-0 in the first round and 25th-ranked Spring Hill 5-3 in the semifinals. They'll play 20th-ranked William Carey at 11 a.m. Saturday for the women's championship.
     The Gold Rush (11-13), ranked 16th, beat Belhaven 5-1 in the men's semifinals after a first-round bye and will play William Carey for the title at 10 a.m. Saturday. The XU men will try to win their fifth straight GCAC title in six years.
     XU's women dropped three of of their first four matches against Spring Hill but did not lose a set thereafter. Colleen McArthur, a singles loser to the Lady Badgers in both regular-season duals, clinched for the Nuggets with a 6-3, 6-2 decision over Alex Tovar.
     Mario Myles won in singles for the first time since March 31 and clinched for the Gold Rush with a 7-5, 6-1 victory against Belhaven's Robby Wright.
     William Carey, playing this season for the first time since the 1990s, defeated Tougaloo 7-1 in the women's first round and Mobile 6-2 in the semifinals to extend its winning streak to nine straight. The Crusaders had the other men's first-round bye, then beat Mobile 5-1 to deny the Rams a third consecutive trip to the finals.
