Former volleyball standout Kane on broadcasting fast track

When the 2012 Binghamton volleyball team celebrated its America East title and the program’s third NCAA Division I berth, one former standout was cheering loudly from across the country.

Jacki Kane led the volleyball program to its first conference title and NCAA Division I berth in 2005. She earned Most Outstanding Player honors at the America East Championship, where Binghamton defeated Maine and Stony Brook to win the crown. Kane, who graduated in 2008 with a degree in political science and English, has since embarked on a successful career in television broadcasting. But memories of her volleyball career, former teammates and time at Binghamton are never far from her mind.

“I am so very proud of this year’s team winning another America East title,” Kane says. “Coach Kiriyama has worked very hard to create a solid volleyball program and obviously his hard work is paying off. He continues to bring in talented women who really know the game and know how to perform under pressure. I am thrilled and so excited for them.”
