Binghamton volleyball falls to Albany 3-1

Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y. - Kamisha Kellam had 13 kills and hit at a .500 average to lead Albany (18-8, 10-0) to a 3-1 win (25-10, 24-26, 25-21, 25-17) over Binghamton (14-13, 8-2) in an America East conference match on Sunday afternoon.

The Bearcats have won 10 of their last 12 matches, but both defeats have been to the Great Danes.

"Albany is a great team," head coach Glenn Kiriyama said. "I thought we played a lot better than the first time we played them. We were a little more efficient this time."

The Bearcats won the second set on the strength of two service runs by sophomore Megan Rogers and senior Katie Thomas. Sophomore hitter Anna Lejina notched six kills in the second set.

Lejina led Binghamton with 18 kills and classmate Michelle McDonough added 16 kills and 11 digs.

Sophomore setter Lindsey Mueller posted her eighth double-double of the season with 42 assists and 12 digs and senior libero Jaclyn Strader had a team-high 14 digs.

Junior middle Dawn Lammert posted five blocks in the match.

Binghamton has already clinched a number two seed for the upcoming America East tournament and has two conference regular season games remaining. The first will be a road match at Maine on Friday at 7 p.m.
