PHILADELPHIA, Pa. --- Colby College sophomore Jake Leiby battled hard in both squash matches in losing twice at the Intercollegiate Singles Championships at the University of Pennsylvania on Friday.

Leiby was competing in the Molloy Division ('B') and earned a tough draw by meeting fourth-seeded Nils Mattsson of Navy in the first round. Leiby took a 9-5 win in the first game only to see Mattsson win three straight at 9-3, 9-4, 9-0.

The setback put Leiby in the consolation round and a meeting with Bowdoin's Matt Dresher, who won 9-6 and 9-1 in the opening two games. Leiby did not give up and took 9-6 and 9-7 wins in the next two games, but Dresher won 9-7 in the deciding fifth game.
