September 30, 2012


     GAINESVILLE, Ga. — Auburn Montgomery's top-seeded Jade Curtis and Morgane Zowczak rallied Sunday for a 6-4, 6-0 victory against Xavier University of Louisiana's Kourtney Howell and Brion Flowers in the women's doubles championship of the USTA/ITA NAIA South Regional.
     Howell and Flowers led 4-2 in the opening set before Curtis and Zowczak won 10 consecutive games. The victory qualified the AUM pair for the USTA/ITA National Small College Championships next month.
     AUM denied the Gold Nuggets their first NAIA regional championship. The XU men won singles and doubles championships in this event a year ago.
     Howell was a runner-up for the second consecutive weekend. She reached the singles consolation final of the Big Easy Classic at the University of New Orleans in Xavier's opening tournament of the fall semester.
     Howell, a junior, and Flowers, a freshman, are 5-2 as a doubles team.
     Curtis, No. 1 in the final ITA/NAIA doubles rankings each of the past two seasons, won a regional doubles title for the second consecutive year.
