Navy lost to Colgate, 60-55, without its star forward, Carly Meyer, in the quarterfinals of the Patriot League women's tournament yesterday in West Point, N.Y.

Meyer, who was taken to the hospital for food poisoning yesterday, had averaged 20 points and 10 rebounds over the previous five contests.

Kate Hobbs scored 14 points and grabbed a career-high 16 rebounds for the Mids. Betsy Burnett added 10 points and 10 rebounds, while freshman point guard Kalen Kropa scored 11 points.

"It's always disappointing to end a season, but the team and our seniors have a lot to be proud of. Not just what they accomplished, but the way they played," Navy coach Tom Marryott said. "Tonight was another example of our resiliency. We played like that all year, and our seniors deserve a lot of credit for bringing that attitude to the entire team."

Navy (14-14) finished the year with 14 wins, the most since 2002-03, while the Mids' seven Patriot League wins were the most since the 1998-99 squad won seven. It was the sixth time in the past seven years that Navy has lost in the first round of the Patriot League tournament.
