In addition, UAlbany goalkeeper Brett Queener was drafted in the fifth round (48th selection overall) by the Rochester Rattlers. Queener, a three-time all-conference standout from Penn Yan, N.Y., ranked 14th among the NCAA Division I leaders in goals against average (7.85) and 16th in save percentage (.579) as a senior. He is fifth on the school’s all-time saves chart with 467 and stopped double-figure shots against 27 opponents. Queener, who scored his third career goal with a goalie stick in the regular-season finale against Stony Brook on April 26, was also used as an attacker in man-advantage situations.
“I am excited for and proud of Brett,” Marr said. “He is made for the MLL; his style of play is a perfect fit. With his ability to play two positions, he is an asset.”
