University of Albany Field Hockey Moves to 15th in Kookaburra/NFHCA Division I National Coaches' Poll - UAlbany Sports 2010

Albany, N.Y. - The University at Albany field hockey team moved up three spots to No. 15 in the Kookaburra/NFHCA Division I National Coaches' Poll, as announced by the organization on Tuesday afternoon. It marks the sixth consecutive week the Great Danes have been nationally ranked this season.

The Great Danes took over the 15th position on the poll after defeating then-15th ranked Boston U. on Sunday in an America East Conference matchup. UAlbany, positioned at No. 18 last week, recorded a 2-1 shootout win over the Terriers at Alumni Turf Field. Christina Patrick scored the lone goal in regulation, while Suzy Clephane connected on her penalty stroke for the Great Danes' game winner. Goalkeeper Kristi Troch made 11 saves in the game, en route to being named the conference's co-player of the week.

UAlbany (13-4, AE 4-0) is one of two teams still undefeated in conference play. The Great Danes, who have clinched a spot in the America East Championship for the sixth consecutive season, will play on the road at New Hampshire for the regular-season title and the right to host the four-team tournament on Saturday, Oct. 30 at 1 p.m.
