ELMIRA, NY - The Sage Gators dropped their first contest of the weekend to #15 Lasell 3-0 (25-21, 25-14, 25-18) in a neutral site match Friday night.
On defense, Fitzpatrick had a squad-high four digs and two blocks while Zachary Karl (West Monroe, NY/Central Square), Jarod Martel (Albany, NY/Colonie Central) and Bailey Cecchi (Agawam, MA/Agawam) each chipped in two blocks apiece.

Chris MacArthur's (Ancram, NY/Taconic Hills) one solo block tonight put him in 6th place in career solo blocks. The senior's 20 solo blocks put him above Kyle Ray in the record books.
#125 Lasell (12-1) is the first nationally ranked team that Sage has faced thus far this season.
