Binghamton volleyball sweeps Iona 3-0 in the opening match at the Yale Classic

Box Score

New Haven, Conn. - Binghamton (7-7) swept Iona (3-8) 3-0 at the Courtyard by Marriott Yale Classic on Friday night at the John J. Lee Amphitheatre. Binghamton won by scores of 30-26, 30-26, 30-16.

Junior outside hitter Katie Brody (Vestal, N.Y.) and freshman outside hitter Brianna Strong (Elkhart, Ind.) each had the team-high 11 kills. Brody also had 13 digs, while Strong had a team-high 14 digs.

"Brianna (Strong) did a nice job coming in," head coach Glenn Kiriyama said. "She got her totals playing only the last two games. She was swinging aggressively and reading well on defense."

Junior middle blocker Megan Hoag (Brunswick, Ohio) had 8 kills and 3 aces, while classmate setter Ashley Meffert (Louisville, Ky.) had 35 assists and 5 blocks. Sophomore middle blocker Jacki Kane (Centennial, Colo.) contributed a team-high 7 blocks. Freshman libro Jaclyn Strader (Kettering, Ohio) had 13 digs.

"It was a nice team effort," Kiriyama said. "What we didn't get our hands on at net we dug. We dug a ton of balls."

Binghamton finishes the classic tomorrow with Delaware at noon, followed by host Yale at 7 p.m.
