Lejina and Mueller receive America East weekly honors

VESTAL N.Y. -- Sophomore
Anna Lejina was named America East Player of the Week and sophomore Lindsey Mueller was named America East Setter of the Week for the week ending October 5.

Both players were key contributors in Binghamton's 2-0 conference start last week. The Bearcats (7-11, 2-0) earned straight-set victories over both Stony Brook and Hartford.

Lejina averaged 4.00 kills per set on the week and tallied 13 kills against Stony Brook and 11 kills against Hartford, both match highs. Against the Hawks, Lejina contributed a season-high eight blocks with three being solo rejections, part of the team's season-high 18 blocks. On the week she averaged 1.67 blocks per set, good for the second-best average in the conference, only behind teammate Dawn Lammert. Lejina also hit at a .326 percentage (24 kills, 9 errors, 46 attacks), a top-10 mark in the league last week. This week's honor is the outside hitter's first award from the conference office.

Mueller averaged 10.00 assists per set, while also posting 2.33 digs per set and 1.17 blocks per set on the week. Against Stony Brook, Mueller had 35 assists, eight digs and two service aces and in the match against Hartford, Mueller had 25 assists, six digs and five blocks. The sophomore setter set-up the Bearcat attack very well all weekend, leading Binghamton to a league-high .259 hitting percentage for the week. This is Mueller's second accolade from the conference this season and fourth of her career.

This was the first time since November 14, 2005 that the Bearcats had multiple players earn all-conference accolades in the same week.
