Volleyball falls to Northeastern in three games

Box Score

BOSTON, Mass.--Senior outside hitter Whitney Turner led Northeastern (11-7, 2-0 AE) to a 3-0 win over Binghamton (9-11, 0-2 AE) Friday night in an America East game at Solomon Court. The Huskies beat the visiting Bearcats 30-26, 30-18, 30-27.

The Bearcats took the lead early in the third game, 9-8 and held the lead until Northeastern worked their way back to a 26-26 tie. Senior right side hitter Jen Smith (North Tonawanda, N.Y.) tried to spark the Bearcats producing a kill to tie it back up at 27, but the Huskies were determined to stop Binghamton and succeeded.

"We played them close in the first and second games," head coach Glenn Kiriyama said. "It was close all the way to the end of the third game. Overall the team played pretty good."

Smith had a team high 12 kills and 11 digs. Senior outside hitter Michele Heck (Chiago, Ill.) also had a double-double with 10 kills and 10 digs. Sophomore setter Ashley Meffert (Louisville, Ky.) had 29 assists and also produced seven digs.

Binghamton next stop on its three game road trip in Hartford for a 6 p.m. game on Saturday.
