One team played

While most McNeese State athletic teams found their events cancelled over the weekend because of Rita, the Cowgirls tennis team went to Little Rock, Ark. for a tournament.

"We decided with the hurricane coming, we'd go over there and go ahead and play,'' head coach Pat McCain said. She noted that with a team comprised almost entirely of foreign players, there wasn't a big concern about players dealing with their families.

The Cowgirls started one match, but the rains from Rita came in and washed away the rest of the tournament.

"I'm trying to get in touch with (athletic director) Sonny Watkins now to get some guidance,'' McCain said. "Tomorrow, we'll go to Monroe where a lot of the players have friends they can stay with.''
