MENTOR, OHIO -- Freshman Liam Goldberg (Melbourne, Australia/Haileybury College) bounced back from his first defeat of the season, but that was the only win on the day for the Lake Erie College men's tennis team as visiting Grand Valley State University earned an 8-1 Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference decision Saturday (March 30) at the Mentor-Heisley Racquet & Fitness Club.

Golderg (9-1) split the first two sets with two-time All-GLIAC pick Andrew Darrell before taking the match in a third-set tiebreaker 6-3, 3-6, 10-8.  

The Lakers (13-7, 8-0 GLIAC), however, won the remaining five singles matches in straight sets and also picked up three doubles wins.

The Storm (1-9, 0-5 GLIAC) is on the road for a trio of GLIAC contests this weekend starting Friday, April 5, at Tiffin University.
