University of Albany Women’s Golf Trumps Siena In 21-Stroke Win

ALBANY, N.Y. – Hosting crosstown rival Siena College Sunday at Albany Country Club, the University at Albany women’s golf team overcame the Saints by 21 strokes with a team score of 326. “It wasn't our best team score of the season for sure, but it was our ultimate goal to beat Siena for the second year in a row and that's what we accomplished,” said Head Coach Colleen Cashman-McSween. “Everyone had a contribution today and it truly was a team effort.” Sophomore Annie Songeun Lee led the Great Danes with a 79, followed by junior Rosy Hearns’ 81. Rounding out UAlbany’s scorers, junior Paige Fujihara and senior Yoorim Kang each shot an 83. “At the beginning of the week, I wasn't even sure we would get this match in with the rain and impending hurricane coming,” said Cashman-McSween. “But we practiced hard in the pouring rain and cold and it turned out to be a great day after all. “I’m proud of how the team stuck together and worked hard all week. Albany Country Club is a difficult place to play on a perfect day. Throw in some very difficult pin placements and very thick rough and I think we did ok,” added Cashman-McSween. For Siena who shot a combined 347, Kristen Bromley led the Saints with an 85. “It is always hard to win on your home turf in front of friends and family and with high expectations,” said Cashman-McSween. “We will take this win today and we will continue to build on it in our final two tournaments of the season.” Up next, UAlbany competes in the Quinnipiac Classic Oct. 12-13 at New Haven Country Club in Hamden, Conn.
