Loudonville, N.Y. – Sophomore Corrin Conroy eagled the par-5 17th hole and finished with a 1-over score of 73 on the second day of play to claim the individual medalist title and lead UAlbany to the 2009 America East Conference Women’s Golf Championship. It is the Great Danes’ third team title and second consecutive.

Conroy had a two-day total of 155 to take the individual title, defeating second-place Ana Johnson of Boston University by four strokes. Conroy broke her own school record with a low score of 73 over 18 holes, after setting the mark at 75 at Rutgers in the fall.

“I just wanted my team to win, so I wanted to do whatever it took to get us there,” said Conroy, who is now one of five players in program history to record an eagle. “It feels good to win, but it’s great to have the team get a second America East Championship under our belts.”

Freshman Stephanie Klein and junior Jessica Signorelli tied for third place individually with a two-day score of 161. Freshman Annemarie Kissane, who led the field after the first day of play, shot an 84 on day two of competition to finish tied for sixth overall with a score of 163. Junior Amanda McPhee rounded out the UAlbany golfers with a ninth-place finish and a score of 169.

“Winning the America East title was our spring goal, and we reached that today,” said UAlbany head coach Richard “Doc” Sauers, who earned his second straight America East Conference Coach of the Year award. “I was very impressed with Corrin’s play today, she exceeded my expectations.”
