Binghamton volleyball blanks Colgate 3-0 in season opener

Box Score

HAMILTON, N.Y. - Binghamton University volleyball opened its season with a 3-0 win over host Colgate (0-1) Saturday afternoon. The Bearcats (1-0) won by scores of 30-24, 30-14, 30-25.

Junior middle blocker Megan Hoag (Brunswick, Ohio) led Binghamton with 10 kills and freshman outside hitter Brianna Strong (Elkhart, Ind.) led Binghamton with 14 digs. Hoag also had 11 digs, making her the only Bearcat with a double-double.

"Overall the team played well," head coach Glenn Kiriyama said. "I thought we did some smart things out there. Our block came through toward the end of the match to keep their offense in check and we also served effectively. Our defense did a good job digging up a lot of balls and keeping them in play."

Junior setter Ashley Meffert (Louisville, Ky.) split her setting time with freshman setter Ashley Allen (Mill Creek, Wash.) they had 20 and 13 assists, respectively. Sophomore middle blocker Jacki Kane (Centennial, Colo.) contributed with 8 kills and 7 blocks.

Binghamton heads to the Holy Cross Tournament this coming weekend. It's first match will be against Holy Cross at 8 p.m. on Friday.
