Loudonville, N.Y. – UAlbany will welcome Hartford and Boston University to Shaker Ridge Country Club for the 2009 America East Conference Women’s Golf Championship on April 25-26. The Great Danes, as the reigning conference champions, are hosting the tournament for the first time since 2005.

UAlbany, which claimed the Hartford Invitational title last weekend, is led by freshman Annemarie Kissane, who won medalist honors at Hartford. Kissane averaged a team-low 79.2 in five tournaments in the fall to set a new school record and become the first player in school history to average below an 80. She will play as the No. 2 player behind junior Amanda McPhee, who shared medalist honors with sophomore Corrin Conroy at the championship last season. Conroy, who averaged an 80.1 in the fall, is slated in the No. 3 spot, while freshman Stephanie Klein is fourth. Junior Jessica Signorelli rounds out the five-member team.

The order of play will be based on last year's championship finish, with UAlbany playing each hole first, Hartford second and Boston U. third. The three teams will compete over the par-72, 5,805-yard course in five groups of three. Play will begin on Saturday at 1 p.m., with groups teeing off in 10-minute increments. Day two's pairings will be determined by team and individual rankings after the first 18 holes. Designed by Jim Thomson, Shaker Ridge C.C. opened for play in 1929. From the men’s blue tees, the course has a 71.2 rating and a 129 slope.
