Locals power Sage College netters to national spots

The Sage Colleges men's volleyball team continues to rank among the national leaders in several statistical categories. With the release of the second NCAA Division III Men's Volleyball Statistics for the 2011 season, Gator rookie libero Matt Bynon (Burnt Hills, NY/Burnt Hills) is second on the national Division III leader with his 3.74 digs per set average. He has played in 34 sets and has 127 digs on the young season.
Junior Spencer Hilland (Slingerlands, NY/Bethlehem) ranks eighth in the nation with his 3.97 kills per set average. Hilland leads the team with his 135 kills in 34 sets played, while also ranking 10th in blocks nationally as well. He has 35 total blocks, good enough for a 1.03 blocks per set average.
Sophomore setter
Kyle Ray (Horseheads, NY/Horseheads) is also among the national leaders as he has 303 setting assists, good enough for an 8.91 per set average which is 17th best in the country. Ray has five kills with a team-leading 12 service aces and 39 digs. In his young career, Ray has already eclipsed the 300 career dig plateau as he has 318 thus far in 116 sets played.
As a team, Sage is also among the national statistical leaders for Division III. Sage ranks sixth with their 2.29 blocks per set average as they have a combined 129 blocks.
