In 2005 and 2006, Albrecht was a key member of the Wildcats' two NCAA National Titles. Albrecht is also a member of the U.S. National Team helping the Stars & Stripes to the 2009 FIL World Cup Championship.
Albrecht is currently in her second stint as a member of the UMass coaching staff. This past season she helped the Minutewomen to their third consecutive Atlantic 10 Tournament Championship and their second NCAA Tournament berth in the last three years.
