NEWS AND NOTES
Another award for Harbinger
After posting her second consecutive hat trick this past Wednesday against Dartmouth, Freshman midfielder Kendra Harbinger was named America East Rookie of the Week for the second time this season.
Harbinger, a native of Clifton Park, N.Y., scored all three of her goals in the second half of the 12-8 loss to the Big Green, helping the Great Danes rally from a seven-goal halftime deficit.
She scored on 3-of-4 free-position tries, making her 5-for-6 for the season.
Harbinger is tied with senior Emma Powlin for the team lead in goals (8) and is the Great Danes’ leader in draw controls with 14.
A career day for Leghart

The Farmingdale, N.Y., native has started all four games in goal for the Great Danes.
Leghart is coming off a freshman season in which she started 14 games and earned a place on the America East All-Rookie team with an 11-5 record, 10.46 goals-against average and .399 save percentage.
Snow prompts schedule changes
This is the second time in as many games that UAlbany’s schedule has been affected by snow.
The Great Danes' game at Bucknell this past Saturday was postponed because of treacherous travel conditions between Albany and Lewisburg, Pa. An announcement for a make-up date will be made at a later time.
The Huskies (3-3), coming off a 12-11 loss to Massachusetts this past Saturday, will be starting a three-game road trip.
UConn and UAlbany have a common opponent – Syracuse, which beat the Great Danes, 19-12, on Feb. 22 and topped the Huskies, 23-11, on Feb. 9.
The Huskies are led by senior attack Grace Nolan, who has 35 points (21 goals, 14 assists) through six games. That’s 21 more points than UConn’s second-leading scorer, Caitlin Leary, who has 14 goals.
