In his second season leading the program, Alban guided his squad to more school history as Jillian Wright finished the 100-breaststroke with a record-breaking time of 1:14.91 at the 2018 AMCC Championships.

The squad also earned CSCAA Scholar All-America status for the second-straight year.

In his first year at the helm, Alban's women's team broke a pair of school records (400-IM and 400-medley relay). At the AMCC conference meet, the squad took sixth place. The team was honored with Scholar All-American Status as well.
