Immediate Release: September 3, 2009
Binghamton first heads out on the road to face a strong UMass program that graduated just two seniors last year after winning their third straight Atlantic 10 Championship. The Bearcats will be looking to grab a win after the Minutemen have swept dual competitions in each of the team's meetings over the last three seasons.
The Bearcats will be on the road for five of their ten dual competitions in 2009-10. The Bearcats do not face an America East opponent on the road, instead traveling to Marist (November 21), Cornell (December 5), St. Bonaventure (January 16) and Niagara (January 31).
The 2010 America East Swimming and Diving Championships will be held for the second straight year at Boston University's Aquatic Center on February 25-28.
"We have another tough schedule facing us again this year. On the men's side we're facing the top 2 teams from the A-10 (UMass and St. Bonaventure) as well as the America East runners-up, Boston U. Things don't get any easier with Cornell from the Ivy League and a strong U at Buffalo squad," head coach Sean Clark said concerning the men's schedule. "With a full half of our team being freshman, our youth will have to grow up quickly. We'll have to be at the top of our game to compete for some dual meet victories."
"Our women should be more competitive with a few of our opponents. We expect some good contests with Drexel, Siena, Niagara, and Stony Brook. We're still looking to gain ground on the America East Champions-- Boston U, the Patriot League Champions--Colgate, and MAAC runners-up Marist," head coach Sean Clark commented on the women's schedule. "Another solid freshman class will continue to push us in the right direction."
