Women’s Golf Sets For ECAC Championship


ALBANY, N.Y. – Under the direction of first-year head coach Colleen Cashman-McSween, the University at Albany women’s golf team travels to Egg Harbor, N.J. this weekend to compete at the 75th Anniversary of the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division I Championship. The Great Danes are one of five teams contending in the field at Twisted Dunes Golf Club. The two-day tournament commences on Sunday, Sept. 29th and concludes on Monday, Sept. 30th.

In addition to UAlbany, Siena, Holy Cross and Fairfield have experienced Twisted Dune at least once prior, while Monmouth University joins the ranks as a first time attendee in this year’s tournament.

Siena finished fifth overall in 2012 with a combined score of 642, while Fairfield and Holy Cross competed in the 2011 Championship, finishing seventh and 13th respectively. Both the Stags and the Crusaders look to improve on those finishes after missing the 2012 tournament.  

This season, UAlbany has already competed alongside both Siena and Holy Cross. The Danes finished ahead of the Crusaders at the Dartmouth Invitational Sept. 14-15th, outshooting Holy Cross 657 to 726. In addition, UAlbany hosted the Saints just last weekend in a dual match, falling 347 to 339.

The Great Danes look to build off 2012’s 10th place ECAC finish (710) with the help of first-year competitors Paige Fujihara and Sam Schuffenecker. Schuffeneker co-led the squad with an 86 last week against Siena and had UAlbany’s second-best performance at Dartmouth (83-77) behind Fujihara. Fujihara’s 76 in the second round at Hanover Country Club marks the team’s top single-day performance this season.

A par-72, 7,200-yard course, Twisted Dunes Golf Club is a links style course with twisting landscapes, dramatic elevations, and contoured fairways.
