ALBANY, N.Y. - Making their second NCAA Regional appearance, the University at Albany women’s golf team has been selected to compete in the Tallahassee, Florida regional May 7-9, announced Wednesday during the NCAA Women's Golf Selection Show.

Comments From Coach Cashman-McSween
"We are super excited to be heading back to Florida for our Regional tournament. It’s kind of like a homecoming for both of us coaches being from Florida and we obviously have great memories of this past week winning in Orlando. FSU is a great college town with lots to see and do before the tournament starts. And from what I hear the golf course is great! And contrary to the weather in the north we are guaranteed warmer weather. We are really looking forward to competing and enjoying this moment together as a team!"
