Binghamton volleyball's win streak snapped by 3-0 sweep from Albany
Bearcats lose first conference match of the season
ALBANY, N.Y.-- Binghamton (14-10, 6-1 AE) lost its first conference match of the season to Albany (20-3, 6-1) 3-0 at the University Gymnasium in an America East volleyball match Sunday afternoon. The Great Danes defeated the Bearcats by scores of 19-30, 26-30, 15-30. The six match win streak snapped by the Great Danes was the longest in Binghamton's Division I tenure.
Junior outside hitter Katie Brody (Vestal, N.Y.) led the Bearcats with 16 kills. Brody and sophomore outside hitter Kathleen Schauer (Litteton, Colo.) each had a team-high nine digs. Junior setter Ashley Meffert (Louisville, Ky.) passed a team-high 30 assists. Meffert and sophomore middle blocker Jacki Kane (Centennial, Colo.) each produced a match-high two blocks. Freshman libero Jaclyn Strader (Kettering, Ohio) contributed with eight digs. The Bearcats also had 11 receiveing errors in the match.
"Albany is a great team," head coach Glenn Kiriyama said. "Albany was firing on all cylinders. They are probably the hardest serving team in the conference. Our ball handling was not that good which did not allow us to run our offense."
The Bearcats will look to rebound as they travel to America East foe New Hampshire on Friday at 7 p.m.
NOTE: Currently Albany and Binghamton are tied for first place in the America East Conference. Albany won four of the seven games between the two teams this season to hold the tie breaker if both teams are still in first place at the end of the season.
