February 24, 2012


     HAMMOND, La. — Southeastern Louisiana won every set but one Friday night in a 7-0 women's tennis victory against Xavier University of Louisiana.
     The Lions (4-2) rebounded from a 7-0 home loss to Houston earlier in the day and kept the Gold Nuggets (0-6) winless.
     Audrey Chelini and Marion Courbis clinched the doubles point with an 8-3 victory against Ashley McGill and Kourtney Howell at No. 3. The Lions clinched the dual when Adriana Castillo defeated Amber Brown 6-1, 6-4 at No. 3 singles.
     Howell, XU's No. 1 singles player, went to a third-set super-tiebreaker for the sixth time in as many duals this season. She lost 6-2, 4-6, 1-0 (10-6) to Chelini.
     "We fought hard but fell again," XU coach Alan Green said. "We are improving as a team, which is encouraging."
     All six XU losses are against NCAA Division I opponents. Five occurred on the road.
     Xavier's men and women will play Saturday at 11 a.m. against William Carey at the University of New Orleans Tennis Center. Three of those teams are in the NAIA coaches top 25. Xavier's men are ninth, William Carey's men are 13th, and William Carey's women are 12th. The XU women are receiving votes in the poll and tied for 36th.
