Binghamton volleyball breaks losing skid with three-game sweep of Colgate

Box Score

HAMILTON, N.Y. - Junior outside hitter Katie Brody (Vestal, N.Y.) tied a match-high with 15 kills and sophomore middle blocker Jacki Kane (Centennial, Colo.) added 11 kills, leading Binghamton (5-5) to a three-game sweep of Colgate (1-8) in a non-conference volleyball match on Tuesday night at West Gym. The scores were 33-31, 30-26, 30-26.

Both teams struggled offensively during the match. Binghamton hit just .188 (44-22-117) but the visiting Red Raiders posted an attack percentage of just .170 (44-26-106). The two squads also combined for six blocking errors and 14 ball handling errors.

Each team managed to fight off a game point in the opening game before Binghamton won 33-31. In what was perhaps the key stretch of the match, Binghamton was down 20-14 in the second game before going on a 16-6 run to get the win. After the break, the Bearcats fought off Colgate in the third game to take the match.

Junior middle blocker Megan Hoag (Brunswick, Ohio) had two aces and a match-high six block assists.

Katrina Zawojski posted 15 kills for the Red Raiders while Jackie Adlam posted a match-high 17 digs.

Binghamton heads to the Cleveland State Tournament this weekend.
