    Volleyball drops pair of America East conference games

    Stony Brook’s women’s volleyball dropped two 3-0 matches this weekend against two conference rivals, Albany and Binghamton. With the losses, the Seawolves fall to 12-11 overall and 5-4 in America East play.

    In Sunday’s match against the Albany Great Danes, SBU fell short and was swept in three sets. Despite sophomore Evann Slaughter’s ten kills, her team was not able to catch a break. It lost a close first set climbing to within four before Albany was able to put it away.

    The second set was much of the same. Senior Alicia Nelson tallied six kills overall, and senior Masa Balandzic led Stony Brook with 10 kills. But even with those efforts, they could not pull out a set win against Albany and were dominated in the final set losing by a final of 12. Friday’s night game against Binghamton started differently, but unfortunately finished with the same result. The Seawolves actually led at one point in all three sets before losing the lead all three times.  Alicia Nelson had 19 kills and hit .326, but no other Stony Brook player had over four kills. Still, SBU led the first set 7-6, but was never able to get back on top after being within two at 23-21.

    This time around in the second set, the Seawolves grabbed a 16-11 lead before the Binghamton Bearcats were able to score 12 out of the last 16 points to take the set.  The team will next see action on Sunday, traveling to take on first-place Albany. First serve is set for 1 p.m.
