University of Louisville men's tennis signee Alex Gornet recently finished runner-up in the United States Tennis Association Fall Southern Closed Championships.

"I am proud of Alex reaching the finals of the Southern Indoor," said U of L head coach Rex Ecarma. "This is the highest quality tournament in the calendar year by far in the state of Kentucky. With many of the best players from nine different states competing in this event, he really showed he is the hottest player in the state currently and one of the elite of the South. I expect Alex to have more of these types of results in this upcoming school year."

Gornet (Louisville, Ky./St. Xavier) was the top-seeded player in the 64-player singles tournament and picked up five straight wins before falling in the title match.
