The UAlbany field hockey team could be ranked at least near the top ten.


It's a coaches poll, and they don't pay enough attention to details in this case.


It's nice to have two UAlbany programs highly ranked, as UAlbany lacrosse was ranked #4 in the final poll of the year.


Athletic director Dr. McElroy informed me that before the start of this coming UAlbany lacrosse season, there will be


3,000 seats set up. Last year's NCAA tournament game at UAlbany had lots of fans, and very little seating. We need


to get things moving with this 2010 plan.

Good story by Bob Weiner in today's Gazette about the FH team makeup - ten Pennsylvanians and internationals from England, Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada.


Sykes: "We are a much more well-rounded and balanced team than last year". More experience. Ice-hockey style use shifts that come in and out in 10- to 12-minute spans. Deep bench. Only 2 seniors on an 18-player squad.


"Recruiting in New York is a little challenging. There are plenty of good players, but we're competing with Syracuse for all the top players. If that player is really good, she usually goes to UConn or Maryland...Instead of trying to get those kinds of kids from NY, we're looking elsewhere."


"Every weekend in my first two years, I was all over the place, flying out of the country looking for players. We've had a bit of success lately, and people are starting to come to us"

I know the team is going to win the AE Tournament, but if they don't, I think we maybe looking at an at-large spot


This Friday they play Vermont in the Semi final... when Vermont played us at UAlbany this year, we beat them 1-0... Vermont had alot of fans at the game. Far more than we had. Let's hope UAlbany fans will go to Boston.
