September 25, 2010

     COLLEGE PARK, Ga. — In a match with no service breaks, Florida A&M's Chidi Gabriel and Takura Happy prevailed 9-8 (7-5) over Xavier University of Louisiana's Steffen Giles-Osborn and Sean Richardson on Saturday in the men's A-doubles final of the HBCU National Tennis Championships.
     Xavier dropped all three of its championship matches. Gabriel defeated Amir Rahbar 6-1, 3-6, 6-0 in the B-singles final, and Alcorn State's Chan Rutherford and Dasha Rud defeated Carmen Nelson and Melissa DeLoach 8-3 in the women's B-doubles final.
     In semifinal matches, Giles-Osborn and Richardson defeated North Carolina Central's Jack Waissen and Trey Chatman 8-3, and Nelson and DeLoach beat Prairie View A&M's Alejandra Barrera and Raven Lewis 8-4. Rahbar and Jonathan Aubrey defaulted their men's B-doubles semifinal to FAMU's Fabrice Myrtil and Marc Atkinson.
     The tournament was the second for Xavier, which will conclude its fall schedule by playing host to the USTA/ITA NAIA South Regional at the University of New Orleans Tennis Center. That three-day event will begin Friday.
