William & Mary volleyball senior Sydney Biniak gained statewide recognition for her incredible season as she was named to the Virginia Sports Information Directors (VaSID) All-State team, announced on Tuesday.
Biniak claimed a spot on the all-state second team in back-to-back seasons. The Elkridge, Md., native finished the season sixth in the CAA and eighth in Tribe history in kills per set (3.65). The impressive average allowed Biniak to become the fourth in school history to tally 400-plus kills in a season. Biniak hammered 10-plus kills on 22 occasions and went on an insane stretch of 13 consecutive matches with double-digit kills.
Throughout the season, the four-year captain delivered a multitude of mind-blowing performances. Biniak registered W&M’s 13th-best hitting percentage (.591) in a sweep of Savannah State (9/2). In a five-set bout with USC Upstate, she tied eighth in school history for most kills (29) in a match. Another stellar performance includes lifting the Green and Gold to a CAA win over UNCW (10/13) behind 25 kills across 41 attempts with just four errors (.512 hitting efficiency).
Career-wise, Biniak became just the seventh W&M player to exceed both 1,000 career kills and 200 career blocks. She also jumped to third all-time in career points with 1231.0. The outside hitter was rewarded with her second consecutive All-CAA Third Team honor by the league coaches at the end of the regular season.
