It's understandable for college students to let loose and unwind from a hectic week of finals, but the Voorheesville native and Great Danes softball player had every reason to celebrate."On Friday, we beat Boston University, Saturday we beat Stony Brook to win the America East Conference championship and today I graduated and we saw our school's name on ESPN," said Burnham, an outfielder whose school learned Sunday night on the television network that it will play Northwestern in the opening round of the 64-team NCAA Tournament at South Bend, Ind., with Notre Dame hosting.UAlbany
(35-12), which set a single-season record for victories, will meet the 19th-ranked Wildcats (38-15) Friday, while Notre Dame faces Louisville in the other first-round matchup in the double-elimination format.The winner advances to the Super Regionals the following weekend. When Burnham
was a sophomore in 2003, UAlbany
lost the final two games to BU in the A-East finals, denying the Danes their initial NCAA berth.After losing out again last year, the Danes roared through this year's conference tournament after posting a 4-0 win over Stony Brook."I have enjoyed three perfect days," said Burnham
, a .235 hitter with four RBI this year and only one of three seniors on the roster.
