Binghamton volleyball swept at New Hampshire, 3-0
Bearcats locked into No. 4 seed for America East tournament

Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y.--One week after clinching an America East tournament berth, the Binghamton volleyball team (17-15, 7-6 AE) came out flat against New Hampshire (9-19, 5-8 AE), losing an America East Conference match Friday evening in Lundholm Gymnasium. The scores were 30-15, 30-20, 30-27.

The Bearcats came into the match on a high after sweeping Stony Brook and clinching their first ever AE tournament berth, but the tables were turned on Friday by a Wildcat team that has struggled at times during the season. Binghamton's loss combined with Maine's upset win over Albany solidified the four seeds for the upcoming America East tournament. Binghamton has the No. 4 seed and will face top-seed and host Albany in the Friday's 5 p.m. semifinal.

Senior outside hitter Michele Heck (Chicago, Ill.) led the way with a team-high 13 kills and 13 digs. Senior right side hitter Jen Smith (North Tonawanda, N.Y.) added eight kills and 12 digs.

"We got hammered," head coach Glenn Kiriyama said. "They hit hard and served well, and took us out of our offense. They didn't give us many good chances to swing. We just didn't play any phase of the game well tonight."

Binghamton will head to Orono for its final regular season match - a 4 p.m. contest against the Black Bears on Saturday.
