EASTON, Pa. - The Lafayette women's volleyball team (10-13, 2-5) will host two Patriot League opponents this weekend. The Leopards will first welcome Bucknell on Friday followed by Colgate on Saturday in what are the first two contests of a three-match homestand for Lafayette.
Lafayette is coming off back-to-back 3-0 losses last weekend to league opponents Navy and American. The losses dropped the Leopards' league record to 2-5 on the season and their overall mark to 10-13. Entering last weekend, Lafayette had won four of its previous five matches.
Freshman Kayly Elmer currently leads the Leopards with 3.10 kills per game, an average that leads all Patriot League freshmen.

Junior Megan Carter is the team leader in assists with 629 (8.74 apg) while senior Michaela Donohue leads all Leopards with 290 digs (3.54 dpg).
Bucknell enters Friday's match in fifth place in the Patriot League standings, just one place above Lafayette. The Bison have a league record of 3-4 and are coming off a 3-1 loss to Army last weekend.
Colgate will face Lehigh on Friday night before traveling to Easton. The Raiders currently hold the number two spot in the Patriot League standings with their 6-1 league mark. Colgate will enter its match against the Mountain Hawks on a three match win streak.
