NEW ORLEANS, La. - Unranked Tulane sophomore David Goulet upset a pair of ranked opponents on Saturday to advance to the singles final of the 2004 Beau Holton Men's Tennis Invitational on Saturday at the Goldring Tennis Stadium.
Goulet will play UL-Lafayette's 33rd-ranked Evghenii Corduneanu in the championship match at noon on Sunday. In addition to singles, Goulet and freshman teammate Jonah Kane-West will be in action in the doubles championship match following the singles.
