‘Cat Couples: Baseball player Scott Diamond and soccer player Katie Kerrigan

Their relationship survived an early beanball, near continuous separation and endless debate about who was the better athlete … but Bearcat alums Scott Diamond and Katie Kerrigan have prospered and are now enjoying a quieter life with their young son in New York City. But the early years weren’t easy.

Scott and Katie first crossed paths as sophomores at Binghamton during the 2005-06 school year. Katie’s soccer team was in the Events Center weight room in the early morning and Scott would be in there on his own getting his daily workout in before classes. However, he remembers their formal introduction occurring in rather deflating fashion.

Swimmer Meyers makes splash in real world

Junior Tyler Meyers is far more than just a Binghamton University student- athlete.  He is a member of the Explore, Engage and B You leadership institute, he raised money for a mission trip to Haiti, worked a handful of different internships and managed to keep a 3.86 GPA in Business Administration while balancing swim practices and team meetings, some would say Meyers has a knack for doing it all.

Meyers competes in the backstroke and IM events for the Bearcats. At the America East Championships this past spring, he placed in the top five in three individual events and was a member runner-up 800 free relay team. In addition to being one of the Bearcats’ top swimmers, Meyers finds the time to be highly involved in other things too.

Meyers along with his best friend Randy Paul decided they wanted to find a way to help struggling communities. Paul’s family originated from Haiti so he was aware of the struggle to find adequate educational resources in most cities. Meyers, Paul and a few other friends raised more than $3,500 in 2017-18 to fund a mission trip to Cap Haitian.
