Xavier University: ‘Love’ is good for opponents

05699
The Xavier University women’s tennis team, pictured above, became the university’s first athletic team in any sport to reach the NAIA national semifinal tournament by defeating Embry-Riddle (Fla.), 5-3, in mid-May. The Gold Nuggets achieved the NAIA’s No. 1 ranking after defeating No. 2 William Carey in April. During its run, Coach lan Green’s squad won 11 consecutive matches and defeated 12 ranked NAIA opponents. But William Carey gained revenge for a regular-season loss by defeating the Gold Nuggets, 5-0, in the semifinals of the NAIA Women’s Tennis National Championship on May 17. Xavier ended the season with a 19-8 record.
