VESTAL, N.Y. – The America East Conference has released its preseason softball poll and Binghamton has been picked to finish third this coming season. The voting was done by the seven head coaches, none of which were permitted to vote for their own team.
Albany, which won the 2013 regular-season title, received a conference-best 34 points and five first-place votes. Stony Brook, which won last year’s America East Tournament, was second with 31 points and a pair of first-place votes.
Binghamton earned 28 points and the final first-place vote. Hartford (19 points), Maine (18), UMBC (10) and UMass Lowell (seven) rounded out the poll.
The Bearcats open their 2014 season at the South Florida Tournament Feb. 14. The Bearcats return four all-conference players from a squad that went 30-17 (14-4 AE) last year and hosted the America East Tournament.
