Volleyball team adds three more players

The Binghamton volleyball team has announced the addition of three players, all of whom will begin their freshman seasons this coming fall. Each of them signed a national letter of intent.

Megan Phillips (Windsor, N.Y.) is a defensive specialist from nearby Windsor High School. She was named all-state by the NYS Sports Writers the past three years and is also a three-year all-conference selection. In 2003, she was a member of the Empire State Games silver medal team.

"Megan has been one of the top players in the local community during her high school career," head coach Glenn Kiriyama said. "She has a great attitude and a strong work ethic, both qualities that will enable her to excel as a defensive specialist."

Amanda Hubbard (Horseheads, N.Y.) is a defensive specialist from Horseheads High School. She was named all-state as a junior and senior and was the Corning Leader Player of the Year in 2002. Hubbard was also named second-team STAC by the Elmira Star-Gazette in 2001 and was named to the first team in 2002 and 2003. Horseheads won the state title in 2001. In addition, Hubbard has played four years for the Southern Tier Volleyball Club.

"Amanda is a great all-around player who will focus on defense at Binghamton," Kiriyama said. "She is an accomplished athlete and should adapt well to this role."

Kristin Stephens (Melville, N.Y.) is an outside hitter from Half Hollow Hills High School East. She helped lead her squad to the division title in 2000 and the league title in 2001 and 2002. Also in 2002, she was named all-county and was her team's MVP. In addition, she played four years with the Long Island Power Club Team.

"Kristin has experience at the middle and outside positions but will probably be utilized outside," Kiriyama said. "Her versatility and athleticism will be a great benefit to our offense."

Binghamton now has five new players on their roster for the 2004 season. Earlier during the off-season, Kathleen Schauer (Littleton, Colo.) and Jacki Kane (Centennial, Colo.) also signed national letters of intent.
