Allison Smerz hired as Binghamton's assistant volleyball coach

VESTAL, N.Y.--Allison Smerz has been named the assistant volleyball coach at Binghamton University. She comes from Wright State, where she was a four-year letterwinner and one-year undergraduate assistant coach.

Smerz was a libero and outside hitter at Wright State from 2000-03. In her senior season, she was an honorable mention AVCA All-American. During her final year, Smerz ranked 15th nationally with 4.7 digs per game and 21st nationally with 0.61 service aces per game. In her year of coaching (2004), she worked with the team's defense.

For two years, Smerz also coached the Dayton Juniors Under-16 Club Team. She led that squad to a 10th-place finish at the 2003 American League JO Championships.

"Allison is a welcome addition to the volleyball program," head coach Glenn Kiriyama said. "As a highly-recognized defensive player in her playing career, she will work closely with our players to develop their defensive and serve reception capabilities and overall ball control. She is a great person with an engaging personality, who will be a great role model for our young squad."
