XULA's Salwan, Setodji rank 3-4 in ITA/NAIA men's singles

NEW ORLEANS — Five from Xavier University of Louisiana, including two newcomers, were in the 2016 Oracle/ITA Collegiate Tennis NAIA Fall Rankings announced Tuesday.
XULA's ranked players are:
     •  Karan Salwan, third nationally and third in the South in men's singles.
     •  Thomas Setodji, fourth nationally and fourth in the South in men's singles.
     •  Charlene Goreau, 30th nationally and 11th in the South in women's singles.
     •  Lacee Ancar and Emma Kranendonk, 10th in the South in women's doubles.
Salwan, Setodji and Goreau were ITA/NAIA All-America last season. Salwan and Setodji this past May helped the Gold Rush finish second in the NAIA National Championship — XULA's highest-ever NAIA team finish in any sport.
Salwan is a senior from New Delhi, India, and a graduate of Modern School. Setodji is a sophomore from Domont, France. Goreau is a sophomore from Toulouse, France, and a graduate of Raymond Naves School. Ancar is a freshman from the New Orleans suburb of Harvey, La., and a graduate of John Curtis Christian School. Kranendonk, a senior from Heemskerk, The Netherlands, and a graduate of Kennemer College, is in her first season at XULA after transferring from NCAA Division I's University of South Dakota. 
XULA has concluded its fall tournament schedule and will resume competition in late January with dual matches. Coach Alan Green will announce soon the spring-semester schedule.
