It was great to follow UA sports this weekend.
Cross Country Women - Women placed 18 out of 22 in a field of very good teams. Cross Country used to not be so good.
Cross Country Men - The team came in 10 out of 18 teams. Ditto second sentence for the women here.
Field Hockey - In two games played this weekend, our 20th-ranked women took down Delaware, ranked 5th in the current poll and last year's national champion on Friday. In today's game the women lost by one goal in overtime to the 7th-ranked team. Another coup for the team is that Albany got these highly-ranked teams to come to our place.
Volleyball - The women defeated league and SUNY rival Binghamton in four sets.
Golf - The women rallied the second day to come in number 2 in the 11-team field. This team's improvement continues to impress me.
Football - The team maintained its composure to score twice in overtime in an otherwise low-scoring regulation game to beat a team it had lost to in its three previous games at the Division I level.
Soccer Women - UA beat league rival 3-1 on the road.
Soccer Men - The men beat Harvard 3-1 on the road for its second road victory in a row.
After a slow start to the fall sports season, it is gratifying to see the progress these teams have made.
