A number of Leopards post career-bests in the losing effort

LEWISBURG, Pa. – The Lafayette College volleyball team snapped its sets-lost streak on Saturday evening at Bucknell, but ultimately dropped the match, 3-1.

Freshman Leanna Deegan tallied a career-high and match-best 19 kills and classmate Grace Tulevech added 18 kills, hitting .459.
