VESTAL, N.Y. – With the 2014 softball season having just concluded, the NCAA has released its final Division I statistics. Binghamton finished the year ranked second overall with 2.55 stolen bases per game and No. 16 with 0.30 triples per game. There were 289 NCAA Division I softball programs that competed in 2014.

Individually, senior second baseman Jessica Bump ranked No. 10 with 0.72 stolen bases per game while sophomore Sydney Harbaugh was No. 16 (0.68). Bump’s 34 stolen bases this season also set the Binghamton program record while Harbaugh had the second-highest mark with 30 thefts.

“We put an emphasis on bringing in speed through our recruiting the last couple of years and it has helped us be more aggressive on the bases,” head coach Michelle Burrell said. “We also spent a lot of time working on our leads and base running so that we would be able to take advantage of the speed that we had this year.”

Harbaugh, who was the America East Player of the Year, was also No. 42 with 0.09 triples per game. Sophomore catcher Taylor Chaffee, meanwhile, was No. 30 with four sacrifice flies.

NOTES: Louisiana-Monroe was first among all NCAA Division I schools with 2.63 stolen bases per game.
