Volleyball's Kane one of six all-conference honorees tabbed America East Scholar-Athletes for Fall 2007

Kane is a three-time first team all-conference selection

CAMBRIDGE, MASS. - Binghamton volleyball player Jacki Kane (Centennial, Colo.) has been named an America East Scholar-Athlete, the conference office announced Tuesday afternoon.

Kane, a senior with a dual major in English and political science, was a first-team all-conference selection in volleyball for the third straight season.

She enjoyed arguably the finest season of her four-year career in 2007. The 6-2 middle led America East for the third straight season and ranked 14th in the nation with 1.55 blocks per game.

Kane finished the year with a school record 186 blocks. Over her four-year career, she totaled 611 blocks, which ranks second all-time and first in BU's Division-I era.

The Scholar-Athletes were members of teams in the six championship sports which America East offered in the fall season including men’s and women’s cross country, field hockey, men’s and women’s soccer and volleyball.

A committee of athletic administrators and NCAA Faculty Athletics Representatives chose an honoree in each of the six fall championship sports. Each America East Scholar-Athlete was a starter or prominent reserve and carries a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.20.
