     NEW ORLEANS — Amanda Materre, a TennisRecruiting.net three-star recruit from Richmond, Texas, signed a women's tennis scholarship Wednesday with Xavier University of Louisiana.
     TennisRecruiting.net ranks Materre 38th in Texas and 44th in the Gulf States region.
     Materre is a 5-foot-8 right-hander and a senior at Westside High School in Houston. As a junior she became the first female from Westside, which opened in 2000, to qualify for the state tournament. She reached the Class 5A quarterfinals.
     In 2004 Materre won the gold medal in age-12 singles at the Texas Amateur Athletic Federation's Games of Texas. At age 9 she won a tournament in the age-14 division.
     "Amanda has played a lot of top-level competition in junior tennis," XU Coach Alan Green said. "Because of that she will not be in awe of playing college tennis. I'm excited

to get her here at Xavier. I think she'll be an impact player for us next season."
     Materre's non-tennis extracurriculars include the Westside a capella choir, a camp counselor for the Jewish Community Service and a volunteer with Best Buddies International. She will be a psychology/pre-medicine and pre-pharmacy major at Xavier.
     The Gold Nuggets are ranked 22nd in the NAIA and have been in every NAIA top 25 since February 2004.
