Volleyball sweeps Colgate for fourth consecutive win

Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y. - Junior Kathleen Schauer (Littleton, Colo.) nailed a team-high 12 kills, leading Binghamton (12-14) to a 30-21, 30-26, 30-28 victory over visiting Colgate (12-12) in non-conference volleyball action Wednesday night at West Gym. The victory extends the Bearcats' home winning streak to a school-record 13 matches.

"I thought a big difference tonight was our serving and our serve reception," head coach Glenn Kiriyama said. "We were able to keep their hitters off balance at key points of the game."

Schauer was the lone Binghamton player to reach double figures in kills.
Senior middle blocker Megan Hoag (Brunswick, Ohio) posted nine kills and a match-high three service aces. Senior setter Ashley Meffert (Louisville, Ky.) tallied 36 assists while sophomere libero Jaclyn Strader (Kettering, Ohio) and sophomore defensive specialist Katherine Courage (Virginia Beach, Va.) recorded 13 and 11 digs respectively.

Sophomore outside hitter Katrina Zawojski of Colgate had a match-high 13 kills.

Binghamton broke a 4-4 tie in the first game and took a commanding 20-10 lead. Hoag posted two of her service aces during the decisive spurt. The Red Raiders could get no closer than six points the rest of the way.

Nursing a 27-26 lead in the second game, the Bearcats recorded the final three points. Schauer and Hoag nailed back-to-back kills and the Red Raiders made a costly attack error to close out the game.

The Bearcats appeared to be in cruise control in the third game as they went up 29-21. From there, however, Colgate reeled of seven straight points, including three kills by freshman outside hitter Kelsea Loveless. It was an attack error by Loveless, however, that ended the match.

The Bearcats head to Albany for a pivotal conference showdown on Monday evening against the Great Danes. First serve is set for 7 p.m.
