The champs are here! The Binghamton volleyball team once again proved why they are the defending America East champions last week when they dominated Albany, sweeping them 3-0, handing the Danes their first conference sweep since 2002. The fan turnout was great and helped to rattle the Albany players — and their coach, who was issued a yellow card during the match. After a road match against Hartford today, the volleyball team returns home Sunday for a big conference matchup with the New Hampshire Wildcats, who, despite struggling thus far this season, were picked fourth in the preseason coaches’ poll. Game time is Sunday at 1 p.m. at the West Gym, so go down and cheer on the defending champs.
