Binghamton volleyball rebounds with a sweep over Stony Brook

Box Score

Vestal, N.Y. - Junior hitter
Michelle McDonough had 15 kills and nine digs for Binghamton (11-9, 3-1 AE), leading the Bearcats to a quick victory over Stony Brook (10-10, 2-2 AE) in a 3-0 (25-12, 25-18, 25-22) sweep on Sunday afternoon in the West Gym.

Binghamton took the first two sets with ease, going on a 13-3 run in the first set and a 9-4 run in the second set, before a much tighter third set. Tied at 19 all, the Bearcats went on a 6-3 run and finished the sweep with the 25-22 final set. The Bearcats out hit the Seawolves .330 to .099 in the match.

"It was a nice win for us," head coach Glenn Kiriyama said. "Our blocking really affected their hitters and we were able to shut them down. That also enabled us to get our offense going."

The Bearcats blocked nine Stony Brook attempts, with senior middle Dawn Lammert knocking down two attempts on her own and chipping in with three more block assists. Lammert also had five kills and hit at a .400 percentage for the match.

Along with McDonough, junior hitter Anna Lejina crushed double digit kills with 12 kills, hitting at a .400 clip. Junior hitter Sandra DeVito had nine kills, six digs, and four blocks. Devito hit .444 in the match.

Junior setter Lindsey Mueller dished out 32 assists to go along with five digs and three blocks and senior libero Brianna Strong had 16 digs. Freshman middle Alex Roland had four kills and three blocks.

Stony Brook was led by senior hitter Harmonie Calinda with nine kills.

Binghamton will next travel to Albany for a match on Friday.
