Tropical Storm Lee postpones Xavier's match at Loyola
September 3, 2011

     NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana's women's volleyball match at city rival Loyola was postponed due to deteriorating conditions caused by Tropical Storm Lee.
     The Gold Nuggets and the Wolfpack were scheduled to meet at 6 p.m. Sunday. XU coach Christabell Hamilton said she will attempt to reschedule the match.
     The Associated Press reported Saturday afternoon that Lee stalled just before making landfall and threatened to dump more than a foot of rain across the northern Gulf Coast and into the Southeast in coming days. The storm's center was about 45 miles southwest of Morgan City, La., Saturday afternoon, spinning intermittent bands of stormy weather, alternating with light rain and occasional sunshine. Maximum sustained winds were 60 mph.
     The next match for Xavier (1-1) will start at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Spring Hill. Judson (Ala.) will be the Nuggets' next home opponent — 7 p.m. Thursday at The Barn.
