In singles play, the Lakers swept the top four spots in the lineup, including a three-set victory at three singles. The Bulldogs got a victory from Brittany Lavenant in three-set fashion at the five spot with Meylor claiming a straight-set win at six singles.

FSU fell to 2-3 overall and in league action with the setback.

The Bulldogs will return home on Saturday, Oct. 13, as they host Wayne State starting at 10 a.m. (ET) at the FSU Racquet and Fitness Center in GLIAC play.
