UAlbany Sports Information   02-12-2019

ALBANY, N.Y. -- The University at Albany women’s golf team was picked to win a second consecutive Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference title in the league’s annual preseason coaches’ poll, which was released Tuesday, Feb. 12.

The Great Danes, who open their spring campaign this coming weekend at the Reynolds Lake Oconoee Collegiate Invitational in Greensboro, Ga., received 77 points and five first-place votes in the poll.

“It’s an honor to have been chosen as the top-ranked team in the conference for this season,” said Colleen Cashman-McSween, UAlbany’s head coach and the 2018 MAAC Coach of the Year. “I think that says a lot for the players on this team, how hard they have worked and how much they want to win! Having three players averaging 76 is a huge feat.

“Every tournament they compete in is a new challenge, and they are always up for the competition. The more we do it at the higher level, the more confidence they bring to themselves. I’ve very proud of this group of players and the family we have become!”

Among the Great Danes’ returnees are Helga Einarsdottir, who shot 10 rounds under 80 during the fall season, and Megan Henry, who was ninth overall (71-77-148) in the Brown Bear Fall Invitational, UAlbany’s final event of the fall season.

The MAAC Championships will be held April 18-20 at Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. It’s a three-round, 54-hole competition that’s taking place at Disney for the fourth straight year.
