Fairfield, Conn. - Binghamton volleyball (1-5) dropped its final two matches at the Sacred Heart Invitational Saturday afternoon, falling 3-1 to Dartmouth and 3-0 to the host Pioneers - the co-champions of the tournament.

"We didn't execute very well today," head coach Glenn Kiriyama said. "We have a lot of things to iron out before conference play but the girls are working hard and hopefully we will have some better results soon."

Against Dartmouth, BU dropped the opening set 29-25 before squaring the match with a 26-24 win in the second set. But the Big Green put the match away with a narrow 25-22 win in the fourth and then a decisive 25-15 win to close it out.

Senior Ann Lejina led the attack with 21 kills and a .368 hitting percentage. Classmate Michelle McDonough produced 16 kills and 16 digs and junior Julie Chambers handed out 40 assists. The Bearcats hit just .161 in the match however.

Later against host Sacred Heart, BU fell in three straight sets, 25-18, 25-11, 25-21. Lejina collected a team-high nine kills, freshman Xiomara Ortiz chalked up 12 digs and sophomore Alex Roland had six kills and three blocks. Chambers tossed in 27 assists but BU was held to a season-low attack percentage of .138.

The Bearcats return to action Wednesday night at Niagara.
