The Brooklyn College Men’s Tennis team ended its season Friday afternoon, losing on the road to the fourth seed Lehman College, 5-1, in the quarterfinals of the CUNYAC postseason.

Entering the playoffs as the fifth seed in CUNY, the Bulldogs finished with a 4-9 record and 2-3 in conference play, Lehman advances to the semifinals to go against the top-seeded Baruch College.

Lehman made it a clean sweep in singles competition as Jeffrey Lecitona, Won Sik Park and Brian Persuad picked up victories over Brooklyn’s Samuel Meyerovich, Chevaughn Mattis and Travis Burge.

Looking to come back from a singles sweep, the Bulldogs’ only hope in doubles competition was to make it a sweep of their own. Michael Dozortsev and Julian Calame-Mars would pick up an 8-5 victory for Brooklyn over Lehman’s Michael Forte and Jeffrey Lecitona. Although things weren’t the same in the second game for Brooklyn, Lehman’s Richard Williams and Won Sik Park picked up an 8-1 win over Brooklyn. The Bulldogs once again came up short in the third game losing 8-2 in their final doubles competition of the season.
