Kim Jacoby '88
Induction Class of 2005

A native of Hamlin, N.Y., Kimberly Jacoby was a four-sport athlete at Binghamton between 1984-88. She graduated with a bachelor's degree in mathematics and went on to earn her master's degree in theater from Binghamton in 1990.

Jacoby played softball, basketball, volleyball and soccer but enjoyed the most success on the softball diamond. There, she was a two-time captain and first team All-SUNYAC catcher who still holds career records for RBI per game (.98) and slugging percentage (.596).

As a junior, Jacoby ranked among the nation's top 10 in three offensive categories — RBI (5th), doubles (5th) and batting average (6th). She accumulated 15 extra-base hits and 29 RBI in 20 games, and produced a batting average of .492 and a slugging percentage of .873. The spring softball accomplishments capped a busy year for Jacoby, who also played soccer in the fall and basketball in the winter.

In her final collegiate season, Jacoby led the Colonials to the title game of the New York State Women's Collegiate Athletic Association Championship, where the team earned runnerup honors after a 14-win season. She repeated as an all-tournament selection and closed out her senior spring with a school-record 30 RBI.

She ranks among the top 10 in every offensive category.

Jacoby also was a captain for the basketball team, and played that sport for two seasons. She also played two seasons of volleyball and one soccer campaign.

She was named Binghamton's "Athlete of the Year" after both her junior and senior seasons and also received the John Bilos Award in 1988.
