Junior Jordan Paul and senior Michael Bukhalo also picked up wins against the Raiders. Paul defeated Aidan Lee 8-6 in the fourth flight while Bukhalo defeated Tejas Gupta 8-3 in the sixth flight.

Lehigh also competed against Villanova this weekend, securing one doubles win and five singles wins against the Wildcats. During doubles, Bezianis and senior Steven Nazaroff defeated Villanova’s Justin Suarez and Cooper Gordan 7-6.
