EASTON, Pa. - The Lafayette men's tennis team fell in a pair of Patriot League outings this weekend. The Leopards were swept at perennial league power Navy on Saturday and fell to Colgate, 5-2, at Sullivan Courts on Sunday.

Brandon Goldstein and Scott Gelbman both battled to a third set before dropping their singles encounters at No. 2 and No. 5, respectively.
