ALBANY, N.Y. -- The University at Albany field hockey team remains among the top-25 Division I programs in the nation, as announced by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association on Tuesday afternoon. The Great Danes, who have been ranked since the first week of the 2010 season, come in 23rd on this weeks poll.

UAlbany (4-5) went 1-1 last week, falling to #18 Lafayette - who moved up to 14th in the poll this week - and defeating #25 Massachusetts, 3-2, over the weekend. The Great Danes were led by junior Corrine McConville, who scored all three goals for UAlbany against the Minutewomen. McConville converted a penalty stroke with 25 seconds left to play in regulation to give the Great Danes the victory. She scored her other two goals on penalty corner opportunities.

UAlbany will continue its tough schedule this weekend, kicking off America East Conference play on Friday, hosting #12 Boston U. (6-3) before welcoming #25 Louisville (7-3) to Alumni Turf Field on Sunday.

Following the Louisville game, the Great Danes will be hosting a Stick it to Cancer clinic on the turf. The clinic, open to all field hockey players from grades 7-12, will take place from approximately 4:15 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The clinic will cost $5 per participant, and all proceeds will go to the National Foundation for Cancer Research.
