Local Roundup: GSU tennis places in ITA Top 10


    Led by Rayane Djouad's 14-3 dual match record, Georgia Southern's men's tennis team finished eighth in the ITA's Southeast Regional rankings.
    The Eagles posted their first winning season since 2009 and finished with an 11-9 record and a 6-4 mark in Southern Conference play during the the 2013 season. They finished behind South Florida and ahead of Georgia Tech and Central Florida in the regional rankings.
    “The recognition that we received in the regional rankings is a great step for this program. Next year we need to build on the momentum that we built in April with some big wins and carry that into a national ranking and a NCAA appearance,” said Head Coach Nick Zieziula.
    Djouad finished in the top-20 of the individual regional rankings and was tied with Florida's Gordon Watson and Georgia's Marco Nunez for 20th place. The freshman posted a 22-5 overall mark with a 14-3 record in dual play and an 8-2 fall tournament record. Djouad showed marked improvement as the season went on, starting the season at the five position but ending it as the number one.
