ALBANY, N.Y. – UAlbany travels to Dade City, Florida to compete in their first spring tournament of the 2017 season. Western Kentucky University and the University of Southern Mississippi will host the Spring Break Shootout which will take place on Monday and Tuesday, March 13-14.
THE TEAM In the fall, UAlbany competed in five tournaments with three impressive finishes including a 2nd place finish at the Quinnipiac Classic.

THE COMPETITION The Great Danes will be up against a talented 13-team field featuring Fort Wayne, Tennessee Tech, St. John’s, North Florida, Western Kentucky, Southern Miss, Florida Gulf Coast, Georgia Southern, Boston College, Samford, and Jacksonville State. They will also face last year’s MAAC champion, Quinnipiac.
