Lejina named to all-tournament team

Box Score

BOWLING GREEN, OHIO. - Binghamton (4-10) finished their weekend with a 1-2 record at the Bowling Green/Best Western Invitational after dropping their final match to tournament-champion Rice (7-2) 3-0 (25-18, 25-16, 25-21).

Rice was paced by Natalie Bogan's 13 kills and held a 46-34 advantage over Binghamton in that category.

"We had a tough time stopping their offense," head coach Glenn Kiriyama said. "They hit very well and they also out-dug us."

After posting 22 kills against Hofstra earlier today, sophomore Anna Lejina added 15 more kills and hit at a .343 clip in this afternoon's match. The sophomore transfer posted 45 kills on the weekend (4.50/s) and was the lone Bearcat to be selected for the all-tournament team.

Sophomore Michelle McDonough was second on the team with eight kills while posting a team-high nine digs.

"We're working hard right now and are looking forward to get back in the gym and work on a few things," Kiriyama said.

Binghamton will next travel to Siena for a televised game on Wednesday night at 7 p.m.
