GREAT DANES • 5
University at Albany
FIELD HOCKEY
PHIL SYKES
Head Coach
Phil Sykes enters his 11th season as head coach of the
University at Albany field hockey program.
In his tenure, Sykes has guided the Great Danes to three of
the last five America East Conference Championship titles
(2008, 2010, & 2012) and three NCAA Tournament berths.
With his efforts, Sykes has been awarded America East
Conference Coah of the Year twice (2008 and 2009).
With Sykes at the helm over the past nine seasons, the
Great Danes are currently riding a streak of eight winning
seasons. UAlbany has posted double-digit wins the past
seven seasons that includes its highest total of 16 back
in 2010. The nine-year head coach has compiled a 110-88
(.556) overall record and a 31-15 (.674) conference record.
UAlbany tallied its third America East Tournament Championship with a win over New Hampshire, 3-1, in 2012. The
Great Danes moved on to face Penn State in the first round
of the NCAA Tournament. UAlbany fell 2-1 to the Nittany
Lions, finishing 13-8 on the season. The Great Danes tallied
four student-athletes on the all-conference squads, four
on the all-academic team, and two on the all-rookie team.
Kristi Troch took home her third consecutive Goalkeeper of
the Year (splitting with Jess Maroney), Laura Page garnered
Co-Rookie of the Year and Daphne Voormolen was selected
as Co-Offensive Player of the Year.
The Great Danes recorded a 13-7 overall record and 3-2
in conference play. UAlbany fell to the #10 ranked UNH
Wildcats, 1-0, in the semifinals of the America East Conference Tournament. Sykes watched Kristi Troch defend her
conference goalkeeper of the year award for the second
consecutive year in a row.
Sykes has coached a total of 12 player of the year awardees
for the America East including; goalie, midfielder, rookie,
defender and offensive players of the year.
In addition to success on the field, Sykes saw several of
his student-athletes achieve recognition off the field. The
Great Danes have earned 21 spots on the NFHCA National
Academic Squad and 20 America East Conference AllAcademic honors through the 2012 season. Tri-captain
Shelley Gebhardt also was honored with the Chancellor’s
Scholar-Athlete Award in 2005, which recognizes academic
excellence and outstanding athletic achievement. In 2010
and 2012, Troch was named America East Conference Field
Hockey Scholar-Athlete.
Prior to his arrival at UAlbany, Sykes stepped into a role as
interim head coach at Cornell in 2003. Sykes also served
as the first assistant at Towson University, as the Tigers
showed dramatic improvement during Sykes’ tenure, winning 10 games during the 2002 season.
Sykes has a vast amount of playing experience. At age 16,
Sykes represented his country in a United States vs. Canada
Challenge in Calgary, Alberta. That served as the beginning
of Sykes’ experience on the U.S. Junior and Senior National
Teams, which included playing in the 1989 Junior World Cup
in Ipoh, Malaysia. Sykes competed at the 1995 Pan American
Games in Argentina, where the U.S. squad won a bronze
medal. The highlight of Sykes’ playing career came in the
1996 Olympics, when he played on the U.S. Olympic team.
A native of Livermore, California, Sykes retired from international competition to finish his college degree. He graduated
with a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology from California State
University, Hayward in 1999.
Sykes, who resides in Clifton Park with his wife Jen, also
plays competitive tennis. He played number one singles and
doubles at Chabot Junior College, earning a scholarship to
the University of Texas-Pan American, and began teaching
tennis in California, later earning his USPTA certification.
In 2010, UAlbany posted a 16-6 record, going 4-1 in conference play. A mentor to the league’s goalkeeper of the year,
Kristi Troch and rookie of the year, Corrine McConville,
Sykes also saw Christina Patrick and Taylor Luke, alongside Troch, earn all-conference first team accolades, while
Daphne Voormolen joined McConville on the all-rookie
team. Since 2004, 37 first and second team all-conference
awards have gone to UAlbany players along with 22 allrookie awards.

Field Hockey Unanimously Picked to Win America East
CAMBRIDGE, MASS. - The University at Albany field hockey team was selected as the preseason
America East favorite by unanimous decision, the league announced on Thursday.
The second-straight year the Great Danes have been picked to win the league, UAlbany went 16-5
(4-1 AE) last season en route to an appearance in the league championship. Head coach Phil Sykes
has led the Purple & Gold to three conference championships.
UAlbany received all possible first-place votes for a total of 25 points. Defending league champion
New Hampshire was picked to finish second with 20 points. Maine garnered one first-place vote
to earn the third slot and 18 points. Associate member Fairfield came in at No. 4 with 13 points.
UMass Lowell (fifth, eight points) and Vermont (sixth, six points) rounded out the poll.
The Great Danes return America East Midfielder and Rookie of the Year Paula Heuser to highlight
the 2014 roster. The All-America Second Team selection led the league in points last season. Sykes
also returns NFHCA All-Region pick Fiori Van Rijswijk, who anchors the defense with 2013 AllConference Second Team defenders Jaclyn Hibbs and Jordyn Homyak. Goalkeeper Maxi Primus
returns to the cage after posting five shutouts and a league-high goals against average of 1.27 last
season.
The Purple & Gold opens its season with three straight home games, beginning Friday, Aug. 29.

Field Hockey Looks to Continue National Prominence in 2014
ALBANY, N.Y. – The University at Albany field hockey team opens its 2014 campaign with three straight home games this
weekend. The Great Danes are once again looking to top the America East and maintain a national ranking.
UAlbany field hockey hosted two successful scrimmages in the last week, downing Syracuse 3-2 and Northeastern 4-2. Phil Sykes’s
squad was picked to win the America East for the second straight season. The Purple & Gold was selected unanimously to top the
league after reaching the conference final in 2013.
2013 SEASON:
In 2013 UAlbany took a spot in the America East Championship before falling to New Hampshire in Durham. The Great Danes
competed for the league title for the sixth time in seven seasons.
Team Highlights:
•UAlbany earned an NFHCA national ranking for 16 straight weeks in 2013, including a program-best No. 11 from the week of Sept. 16-Sept. 30.
•The Great Danes posted top-5 rankings in national statistical categories throughout the season, including scoring average, goals against average, scoring margin and points per game.
•The Purple & Gold earned the NFHCA National Academic Team Award for the second-straight year, posting a fall semester GPA of 3.16.
•The 2013 Great Danes won nine-straight games to open the season.
•UAlbany’s 2013 squad set program records in goals (85), assists (65) and points (235).
Individual Highlights:
•Corrine McConville became the second Great Dane to earn Division I All-America Honors twice in her career when she was named to the NFHCA All-America Third Team. The only other UAlbany player to achieve the honor is current assistant coach Michelle Simpson.
•Paula Heuser also garnered All-America accolades on the Second Team. She was named the ECAC Rookie of the Year, as well as the America East Rookie of the Year and Midfielder of the Year.
•Daphne Voormolen was named the America East Field Hockey Scholar Athlete of the Year as well as Offensive Player of the Year. The senior forward graduated as the program’s Division I leader in career points (117) and goals (48). She also scored and all-time single-game high five goals against Sacred Heart.
•Maxi Primus posted the top goals against average in the nation for the first four weeks of the season. The freshman goalkeeper earned America East All-Rookie and Second Team honors.
RETURNING FOR 2014:
The Great Danes led the America East in every offensive category last season, and will likely be among the league’s leaders again
this season. All-American midfielder Paula Heuser is the team’s most prominent offensive returner, topping the league with 45
points. She became the program’s single-season Division I leader in points and goals in her rookie season.
Phil Sykes also welcomes back three of his top-four players in the assist column from last season, including Heuser. The Great
Danes also retain All-Region pick and penalty corner specialist Fiori Van Rijswijk (10 assists) and 2012 America East Rookie of the
Year Laura Page (9 assists). Page joins the Great Danes in 2014 after representing her native Scotland over the summer.
On the defensive end, the Great Danes return America East All-Conference Second Team defenders Jordyn Homyak and Jaclyn
Hibbs. The pair looks to fill the void left by center defender Corrine McConville. Maxi Primus is also back for her sophomore
campaign in the cage.
Phil Sykes has a familiar supporting cast on the forward and midfield line this season. Kelly Bonner, Echo Bretz, Molly Mariano, Liza
Morgan and Emily White will provide depth on the front line, while captain Amy Nicklin leads an experienced midfield core.
Local products Anna Bottino and Kelsey Briddell will likely make an immediate impact for UAlbany, after impressive showings at
the team’s two preseason exhibitions.
THE SCHEDULE:
In nonconference play, the Great Danes will challenge themselves in the national ranks. UAlbany will play three top-10 programs
from 2013 on the road in September, including Syracuse (Sept. 6), Stanford (Sept. 14) and Virginia (Sept. 21). The Purple & Gold
return to Alumni Turf on Sept. 28 to face Princeton, the 2012 NCAA Champion. The schedule is highlighted by eight regular season
home games beginning this Friday, Aug. 29 at 1:00 p.m., against Hofstra.

University at Albany Director of Athletics Mark Benson
The University at Albany named Mark Benson as director of athletics on
August 20, 2014. Benson, 45, became the University’s second AD since
the program entered Division I sports 15 years ago. As director, Benson,
who previously was the senior associate athletic director at Old Dominion
University, provides leadership for UAlbany’s NCAA Division I, 19-sport
intercollegiate athletics program and its scholar student athletes.
Following a nationwide search, Benson took the reins of the University’s
diverse athletics programs from outgoing AD Dr. Lee McElroy, who
announced his retirement in June of 2014.
“It is important for UAlbany to engage an athletics leader who has a
demonstrated background for combining success in sports with high
academic achievement. Mark Benson is well qualified to head a program that
values the integrity of the collegiate athletics experience,” said University
at Albany President Robert J. Jones. “We have an outstanding athletics
program with many benefits and a great legacy on which to build. The
University community extends a warm welcome to Mark and his family.”
Benson also served as the assistant vice president for Athletic Development at Old Dominion, and has served in this capacity since August
2006, and was an adjunct professor in the Sports Management Program. During his time at Old Dominion, Benson was responsible for
budget preparation and administration, as well as providing sport supervision for men’s and women’s sailing. During Benson’s tenure
at Old Dominion, the Athletic Endowment grew more than $16 million and the Old Dominion Athletic Foundation annual fund grew from
$400,000 to $4.1 million. Benson was responsible for soliciting seven $1 million plus gifts to athletics, as well as numerous significant
commitments from donors.
Prior to his time at Old Dominion, Benson worked at Coca-Cola Enterprises, Inc. as an Educational Channel manager. In his role with
Coca-Cola, he managed the Educational Channel for the Commonwealth Division, which covers sales centers from eastern Delaware to
eastern North Carolina. Benson developed financial and marketing proposals as well as negotiated beverage contracts with colleges and
universities within his division.
Benson and his wife Hunter are the parents of three daughters, Vandy Grace, Lydon and Hannum. He is a graduate of North Carolina State
University.
“I am excited to join the University at Albany athletics program at this stage in its growth and potential,” Benson said upon his hiring. “My
family and I feel warmly welcomed by the UAlbany community, and I can’t wait to settle in and get to work.”
“I’m pleased to welcome Mark to the University at Albany and the America East Conference,” said AE Commissioner Amy Huchthausen.
“UAlbany has a robust athletics program and he takes the AD title at perfect time to build from a position of strength, both within the
conference and nationally. I look forward to working with him as he moves the program forward.”
“Mark was instrumental in orchestrating ODU’s meteoric rise to FBS football in just five seasons, while helping us sell out every home
game we played,” said Old Dominion AD Wood Selig. “While ODU will greatly miss his substantial contributions and leadership, we are
thrilled he will realize his professional goal of becoming a DI athletic director at a high profile academic institution. UAlbany is getting a
rising star in the college athletic industry in Mark Benson.”
“Mark Benson’s leadership will guide the growth of athletics at UAlbany,” said CAA Commissioner Tom Yeager. “We know he’ll apply his
commitment and vision to the student-athletes, academics, and the university.”
The University at Albany led an NCAA Division III program from 1972 to 1995, moved to Division II for four years and entered Division I
competition in 1999. UAlbany sports has eight men’s and 11 women’s teams competing at the Division I intercollegiate level. Seventeen of
the 19 are members of the America East Conference, while football competes in the Colonial Athletic Association, and women’s golf in the
Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.
Since entering Division I, UAlbany has won 74 Conference championships and 25 regular season titles, and 31 teams have participated
in NCAA tournaments. In the 2013-14 season, the Great Danes won eight conference championships and had 92 athletes achieve allConference honors. In 2006, the UAlbany Great Danes produced the first team in State University of New York history to play in the men’s
NCAA Basketball Tournament, competing against UConn.
Most notably, the UAlbany Great Danes excel as student-athletes. In 2013-14, the University had 30 America East All-Academic honorees,
while four Great Danes were winners of a SUNY Chancellor Scholar-Athlete Award.
UAlbany student-athletes have also volunteered more than 20,000 hours in local organizations and charities including the Salvation Army,
Wounded Warriors Project, American Cancer Society and Big Brothers/ Big Sisters. Great Danes have been honored with ESPN Academic
All-American Awards, All-American Honor Awards, Chancellor Scholar-Athlete Awards, America East Conference Academic Honor Roll
and University Presidential Leadership Awards.
