Spallina added another big time transfer for the spring in former Florida midfielder Janine Hillier. She was fourth leading scorer for 5th ranked Florida last spring. Adding Hillier(second team american lacrosse conference), Cook (D2 midfielder of the year), and Petersen(D2 attacker of the year) seems like a crazy influx of talent especially considering Stony Brook was already returning three of their top four scorers from a year ago. I'm definitely buying into what Spallina is building here at the brook.

Oh!!! Sounds good. It sounds like Stony Brook women's lacrosse will be highly competitive this year. I'm looking forward to attending the games.


(Ocean, Its crazy how Florida started a lacrosse program a couple of years ago and they were ranked fifth... If only we had the reputation of the Gators)

Post by: sbufan on December 14, 2011, 01:40:34 am
Yeah it's really pretty insane how successful they are down there. Just to note how good they are: Albany was undefeated heading into the quarterfinals where they lost to eventual national champs Northwestern in a rout 4 - 18. Florida beat Northwestern during the regular season.

I think Hillier transferring to Stony Brook is almost like a starter on UConn womens basketball team playing for our womens hoops team.

Most intriguing team of 2012. I think this team is going to make a splash in the division 1 lacrosse world. I bet they will be a top 20 team by the end of the season.

I've covered the two games they have played so far, they are completely different from last year's team, to be blunt.

Manhattan was just a joke, frankly (how do you only have one goalie on the roster? God help you if she gets hurt). If Spallina didn't tell his team to ease up, they could of easily won 30-0. I think some kind of mercy rule went into effect midway in the first half, as the clock just kept running.

Another scary thing, they've been doing this without one of their best attackers, Claire Peterson. She should be good to go on Sunday against CCSU.

 I think some kind of mercy rule went into effect midway in the first half, as the clock just kept running.


It's a rule in NCAA women's lacrosse, when the margin is 10 or more goals, the clock continues to run (other than during an official time out), with the exception being the final 2 minutes of each half, when standard clock rules are in effect.

I think we win this one and at Monmouth.  Hopkins will be a good bench mark of how strong we are. That  schedule of Hopkins, Duke, Maryland and Florida is great.  Win any two games of the four for national attention.

If you don't go in to every game thinking you can win, then there's no point even showing up. Still the next 4 will be a huge test, and the stiff competition will certainly get this team ready for the bulk of America East play that starts at the end of March!

Post by: Seawolf97 on February 27, 2012, 08:54:43 pm
I wouldn't be surprised if we win 1 or 2 of these. Our offense at least up to now is huge. I think they backed off on some of these wins -Mercy Rule?   This team can score so hopefully they  just go out  play their game.

Title: Re: SB Seawolves Women's Lacrosse: Discussion/ News
Post by: Jones44 on March 06, 2012, 06:07:34 am
Not shocked at all. With the talent that Coach Spallina brought over with him from Adelphi (including the freshmen that changed commitments from Adelphi to SBU), plus snagging Hillier from the Florida Gators and the returning cast, this is no surprise to me at all. FYI- Media poll released yesterday (Monday) had SBU unranked and no listing of others recieving votes, Laxpower has them unranked but 2nd among "others recieving votes" (so technically, #22). IWLCA coaches 4th among others recieving votes. After this performance, they will be ranked top 20 in all polls. Guarantee. This was huge for their confidence going into the next pair of games on the road at Florida and Maryland, very similar teams to Duke that our SB girls know they can beat if they play their best!

It was a great back-and-forth and it is clear BU and SB are the 2 best teams in the league. SB wins at Albany next week they clinch the 2 seed. A loss and the playoff picture gets really murky. I see the ladies bouncing back big time and trouncing our arch-rivals!

Post by: Jones44 on April 21, 2012, 09:33:55 pm
I was there. Our goalie (back-up, mind you... not sure why the #1 wasn't dressed but I'm guessing she re-aggravated an injury in practice) made some amazing saves, and the offense is really clicking well at the right time of year. Hopefully they don't look past next week's relatively meaningless regular-season finale. I'd like to see them finish the regular season strong and be in top shape for whoever they draw in the playoffs...

Post by: ecasadoSBU on May 04, 2012, 03:15:19 am
It still impresses me how Spallina was capable of turning this program around in a single year. But what amazes me more is the high level of recruiting he had in DII Adelphi. After the success at Stony Brook thanks to the Adelphi transfers it is clear that Adelphi was better than a lot of DI teams out there and that he was recruiting good DI talent. Petersen was one of the nine was elected handed conference honors and she made the All-Conference team.

This guy is a winner!! its his first season but I'm already worried about the day he decides to leave to another top DI team... lol

Tough loss, but the future is bright! It's pretty incredible how far the team came in only one year. Almost everyone returns so I think next year could be even more exciting.
Title: Re: SB Seawolves Women's Lacrosse: Discussion/ News
Post by: ecasadoSBU on May 05, 2012, 06:34:35 pm
It was a great game. Stony Brook came back and tied it up at 7. Very competitive.  Unfortunately, Albany scored a goal and then killed the clock. I dislike the non-contact aspect of women lacrosse. You can kill all the time you want and cannot get checked for it.

It was a pain to watch in TV. the game is so slow that when I headed to LaValle stadium and watched the first few minutes of the men's game it feel like the men were flying.

but this team is going to be great next season. They are going to be hungry. Petersen and Cook in their senior season
Title: Re: SB Seawolves Women's Lacrosse: Discussion/ News
Post by: ry1nik on May 05, 2012, 07:22:58 pm
Agree with the forecast for next season. Not only are all the top guns returning, but Spallina should be able to attract some top frosh recruits because of the team's success this season. I look for a Top Ten team next year. And Top 20 (maybe Top 15) for the men.
Title: Re: SB Seawolves Women's Lacrosse: Discussion/ News
Post by: Jones44 on May 05, 2012, 09:06:46 pm
Albany forced SB to play their style today. The Danes totally controlled the pace of the game, I think they knew they'd be in for a long day if the got into a run and gun shootout with SB. And they worked the stall perfectly at the end. This is one aspect of the women's game that I prefer over the men's game, it puts more pressure on the defense and the offense has to be more selective and patient (like Albany twice faking in front of the empty net in the final stall after SB pulled their goalie, opting to take more time off the clock rather than score and give SB a shot at a couple of quick draws and shoots like at the end of the first half).

Maryland plays at Boston College the DAY BEFORE they play the Wolves. It's rare to play on consecutive days during the regular season. With the Terps playing on tired legs, a major upset is a real possibility. It would catapult SB into the Top Ten for sure.

Albany wasn't just another AE slug team. Their Laxpower computer rating is 11th in the nation and they received votes in the Top 20 poll. Big time victory over a very good team. As long as the Wolves don't draw Florida or Maryland in the first round...which I don't think they will...I expect them to advance.

Quote
Stony Brook women's coach Joe Spallina tweeted Monday morning, "Been asked about this a lot lately: personal feeling is February 1st should be universal start date for NCAA men's and women's lacrosse."

USC at No. 16 Stony Brook, 6 p.m. Feb. 20

There is no question that many people, myself included, want to know what else USC can do after taking their season opener against one of the most historically challenging teams in Northwestern down to the wire. The Trojans are officially on everyone's radar as a possible sleeper team that could make waves with junior attacker Caroline de Lyra at their disposal. She finished with five points against the Wildcats.

Meanwhile on the opposite coast, Stony Brook may sweep the America East conference with top midfielder Michelle Rubino leading the charge, but come May, the Seawolves could be a bracket buster.

These two seemingly sleeper teams that could shake the nation will square off in what will likely be an exciting battle of the two coasts.

Stony Brook Restores Identity, Returns to Title Talks

Two weeks later, Stony Brook is 6-3, riding a four-game win streak after their biggest victory of the season – a 17-7 defeat of then-No. 8 Stanford on March 26. With the upset, the Seawolves jumped from No. 16 to No. 9 in the Nike/Lacrosse Magazine Top 20.

As key members of the draw unit, losing both Yevoli and Mitchell was felt the greatest in the midfield. Both Florida and Northwestern held 13-2 draw control advantages over Stony Brook, and both games ended in 7-6 losses for the Seawolves. The two returned to the lineup together last week.

Stony Brook

After dropping three of their first five games, including a pair of 7-6 defeats at the hands of Florida and Northwestern, the Seawolves were due for a big win. It came in the form of a 17-7 rout of Stanford on March 26 in the midst of the program's longest winning streak. Stony Brook finished the regular season with 14 straight wins, avenging their 2015 loss to Johns Hopkins and winning their fourth consecutive America East crown against Albany. Only time will tell if they've truly turned a corner.

First Round: Stony Brook vs. Boston College

Despite hosting Friday afternoon’s action, Stony Brook will technically be the “home” team as they enter the action ranked ahead of the Eagles. The meeting between the pair of non-traditional foes is just the fourth in all-time history and first since 2006, and the Eagles have won all three meetings. The Seawolves are led by the nation’s leading goal scorer in Courtney Murphy (95g, 14a), and the America East Attacker of the Year is flanked by fellow Tewaaraton nominee Kylie Ohlmiller (41g, 44a). Defensively, Joe Spallina’s team has yet to give up over 10 goals in a game this spring – in fact, they have given up double-digit goals just once this spring, a 10-14 loss to No. 5 seed USC. Freshman Anna Tesoriero’s 5.82 GAA ranks second in the nation.

Boston College heads in Friday’s content led by four 40+ point scorers in Tewaaraton nominee an reigning finalist Sarah Mannelly (36g, 33a), Caroline Margolis (28g, 16a), Kate Weeks (40g, 2a) and Tess Chandler (29g, 11a). Additionally, ice hockey standout Kenzie Kent ranks fifth on the team with 35 points (18g, 17a) – second in assists – through just nine games played.

Who wins: Toss-Up

This might be the most intriguing first round matchup in the tournament, as both teams play a vastly different brand of lacrosse; but neither more impactful than the other I'd argue. Stony Brook has proven that its zone defense can give teams fits offensively, but the Eagles has proven that they can score against the best of them and are no stranger to the zone – most recently racking up 11 vs. Syracuse in the ACC quarterfinals. This team will come down to who can possess the ball more often and capitalize on those possessions. Neither team dominates on the center circle – Keri McCarthy leads Stony Brook with 61 draws (39th nationally), and Sam Apuzzo still remains the leader in draws (33) for the Eagles despite not having played the last nine games of the season.

Tough draw, tough loss, great team.

I watched that game. What a heartbreaking loss. When we were up by 2 goals late in the first half I really thought SB had this game, even though SB was losing the Draws. the defense was solid with stopping Syracuse and we were making goals fairly easy in the first half.... I thought this was their year to finally advance to the Quarter finals.. SB returns 92% of their starters next year so they should be just as competitive if not better than this year..

The Stony Brook Women’s Lacrosse Team’s Evolution into a National Powerhouse

Stony Brook University’s women’s lacrosse team is consistently one of the best in the nation. Five years ago, that would have seemed like a pipe dream.

Through 2009-2011, the team had posted an 11-35 record. Ever since former Stony Brook Director of Athletics Jim Fiore hired Joe Spallina to take over the head-coaching job, the women’s lacrosse program has found annual success. The team has gone 80-17 during Spallina’s five-year tenure.

“We haven’t made it a secret that we love Long Island kids and they’re a huge part of our success,” Spallina said. “On my way home, I pass five high schools that play high-level lacrosse. Those girls have an opportunity to play lacrosse in their backyard at Stony Brook.”

“I think the biggest thing for us early on in our recruiting is that everyone wants the five-star lacrosse player,” Spallina said. “We’re okay with taking the three or four-star lacrosse players with a five-star work ethic and work on developing them into a five-star player.”

4. Stony Brook

Number of Starters Lost: 2
Starting Goalie Graduate? No.
Percentage of Point Production Lost: 7.17%

The 2017 season could very well be the year of the Seawolves. They've been building one of the strongest teams over the past couple seasons, gaining experience playing against the best teams in Division I. Stony Brook has one of the best case scenarios among 2016 NCAA tournament teams returning a majority of its starting lineup, including new NCAA Division I single-season scoring record holder Courtney Murphy, who finished with 100 goals.

Worst decision in the postseason accolades season: Stony Brook's Courtney Murphy's exclusion from becoming a Tewaarton finalist is mind-boggling. If breaking the NCAA Division I single-season scoring record for a top 10 team and a national power isn't enough, I'm not sure what is. Could it be that the front of her jersey says Stony Brook, and not one of the traditional powers? This process clearly needs to be re-evaluated.

Murphy was the only player to break the 100-point threshold in 2016 as the automatic scorer for Stony Brook, tallying 100 goals and 16 assists. The First Team All-American led the country in goals per game (4.76) and points per game (5.52) for the Seawolves, who ranked fourth in the country in scoring margin.

Quote
Attacker Kylie Ohlmiller (Stony Brook '18), whose application to try out for the 2015-16 team was denied, made the training team in her first U.S. tryout.

Which players improved from day one to day three? U.S. team selectors took note especially of Ohlmiller and midfielder Nicole Graziano (Florida '16) for their ability to accept their mistakes, synthesize feedback and adjust accordingly. Both were on the bubble entering Sunday.

Ohmiller "played her way onto the team just by her presence and ability to be dynamic creating opportunities for herself and others," Fried said, while Graziano "worked her way into everyone's consciousness" with a "super-gritty, super-competitive" approach to drills and scrimmages.

Stony Brook, which was awarded the 2018 Division I women's lacrosse championship after hosting in 2011 and 2012, also submitted a bid to host this spring.

Seawolves director of athletics Shawn Heilbron announced the school's decision in his "Together We Transform Thursday" blog on Sept. 15, noting that "the spirit in which the NCAA acted earlier this week is alive and well at Stony Brook." Coach Joe Spallina also supported Stony Brook's bid with LaValle Stadium as the venue.

"I think Stony Brook would be a perfect venue to hold the final four on short notice," said Spallina. "To me, it is an absolute no brainer – great stadium in a hotbed that could guarantee a packed house with experience hosting."

Stony Brook's Trajectory

Many teams have kept their eye on Stony Brook after it defeated USC, Notre Dame, Florida and Northwestern in 2015. Then last season, the Seawolves topped Stanford, Johns Hopkins and Boston College. So what's next? With star players like Kylie Ohlmiller, who just made the 2017 World Cup Training Team for the United States, and Courtney Murphy, who set the single-season NCAA goals record, the sky's the limit.

Face-Off Yearbook 2017: Women's Division I Player of the Year Watch

Quote
Courtney Murphy, A, Sr., Stony Brook
Murphy led the nation in points in 2016 (116) after notching an NCAA single-season record 100 goals last spring en route to being named an First Team All-American and the America East’s Offensive Player of the Year. Six of Murphy’s goals were game-winners, as she helped lead the Seawolves to their 17-4 mark. She also picked up 17 groundballs, seven draws and caused nine turnovers. Murphy, alongside fellow linemate Kylie Ohlmiller (below), are the nation’s top one-two punch heading into 2017.

Kylie Ohlmiller, A, Jr., Stony Brook
While Murphy had a strong showing in 2017, don’t overlook the 91-point (44G, 47A) résumé teammate Kyle Ohlmiller put up on the heels of her breakout rookie campaign (42, 44). Ohlmiller has the ability to create offense for herself and her teammates at an equally high level. The talented lefty heads into her junior campaign as the nation’s top QB-type attacker, and she looks to lead Stony Brook to its first Final Four appearance.

4. Stony Brook

2016 record: 17-4 (6-0 America East)
Last seen: Giving up a halftime lead to Syracuse and ending its hopes of a final four appearance.
Starts lost: 21%
Scoring lost: 7%

Forecast: Stony Brook is the dark horse of 2017. The Seawolves have been on the verge of breaking through for the past few seasons and enter spring with threats all over the field, from Courtney Murphy, the first player in NCAA history to score 100 goals in a season, to goalie Anna Tesoriero, who finished second in goals against average in Division I.

Enemy lines: “Return over 90 percent of scoring, starting goalie and defensive experience. Why can’t this be their year? … Spallina has done amazing things with this program. … Ohlmiller and Murphy could be best 1-2 combo in NCAA.”

Conference: America East
2016 Record: 17-4
2016 Conference: 6-0
GPG (Rank): 13.43 (7)
GAA (Rank): 6.10 (2)
Location: Stony Brook, N.Y.
Head Coach: Joe Spallina
Year: 6th
Website: stonybrookathletics.com
Twitter: @StonyBrookWLAX
Key Losses: Alyssa Fleming, D; Maegan Meritz, D; Taylor Ranftle, A; Lauren Schwalje, M
2017 Face-Off Yearbook All-Americans: Courtney Murphy, A, Sr. (First); Kylie Ohlmiller, A, Jr. (First); Dorrien Van Dyke, M, Sr. (Second); Anna Tesorierro, G, So. (HM); Jessica Volpe, D, Sr. (HM); Kristin Yevoli, M, Sr. (HM)
Impact Arrival: Taryn Ohlmiller, A, Islip (N.Y.)
The season will tell if Ohlmiller is a natural addition to Stony Brook’s offense, a unit regulated by her sister Kylie. An Under Armour All-American and IL’s No. 31 incomer, Ohlmiller will use her stick skills and creativity to try to contribute to an already lethal offense.
Position Unit of Strength: Attack
With 2016’s national scoring leader returning to the field along with the fifth overall point-scorer from a year ago, the Seawolves’ attack will be nearly impossible to defend. First Team All-American Courtney Murphy set the NCAA single-season record with 100 goals, while Team USA member and All-American Kylie Ohlmiller quarterbacked the Stony Brook offense with 44 goals and 47 assists. The Seawolves also return Dorrien Van Dyke, who tallied a 53-goal season in 2016 — no small feat, but just over half of Murphy’s record.
Preseason Storyline: Carerra comes on board
Carolyn Carerra will join Stony Brook as a transfer from another Long Island school, Hofstra. In 2016, Carerra contributed 66 draw controls, 31 groundballs and 17 caused turnovers. The junior will fortify the defensive side of the field for the Seawolves, who will need to replace a trio of starting senior defenders from 2016.
Bottom Line: Stony Brook is knocking on the door
As the Seawolves seek to make their fifth-straight NCAA Tournament appearance, there is more on the horizon for the team. Stony Brook has had the pieces in place, but with virtually all of its offensive production returning from a record-breaking 2016, along with goalie Anna Tesoriero with a season under her belt, the Seawolves will have a good chance of getting over the hump to Championship Weekend. While Stony Brook will need to find answers defensively, with Tesoriero returning as the anchor, the Seawolves will still retain some consistency from a year in which Teroriero ranked 11th in the country in save percentage.

KYLIE OHLMILLER
Stony Brook, Junior, Attack
The dynamic junior leads the nation in scoring thanks to her incredible balance of 40 goals and 35 assists. Her goals per game ranks eighth in the country and her assists per game rank second. Since Courtney Murphy was lost to injury, Ohlmiller has become even more important on attack and has delivered. She has elevated her game despite even greater attention from opponents.

The America East is a God-awful Conference!

What's troubling, is how is Penn St seeded 4th when they lost to Northwestern and Colorado, while Stony Brook beat both these teams.  Someone or some people are out to get someone!

Also, you be surprised how unqualified some of the memberships  are on the selection committee.

We are  talking the women's bracket, not the men.
None of the men criteria works on why Penn St is seeded higher than Stony Brook.
Geographically it's negligible.
Stony Brook would have greater attendance than any other school except for maybe Maryland. More merchandise and more concessions would be sold at Stony Brook.
None of the games will be on "tv" prior to the semis. If the games were televised the ratings would be .00000000001

It all comes down to common opponents with Stony Brook and Penn State.
Based on this, Stony Brook got screwed!

I'm quite certain the AE conference had everything to do with the seeding... SB really needs to move out of this conference if they want to gain respect from the cmte in the future.. Just move all sports into the CAA already.. Moving into the MEEC, Patriot league would only be a lateral.. The CAA is a arguably a step up

We tried to do that, but Hofstra blocked us the last time. Besides, we'd be moving all sports from a single one bid league to another and increasing the travel costs. Is it really worth sending our teams to the Carolinas in the middle of the week just to be in another one bid league? The only non FBS move I'd make is to the A10.


Sure the committee screwed over the wLAX team on seeding, but being in the CAA alone wouldn't fix that. The CAA isn't what it once was when ODU, VCU, etc. were in the conference years ago and George Mason made the final four.

The No. 8 Stony Brook Seawolves (18-1) think they can be the one to make waves. Their lone loss was to Florida, and they count wins over USC, Colorado and Northwestern. Kylie Ohlmiller, a junior with a national-best 145 points (70 goals and 75 assists), is looking to become the school's first Tewaaraton winner. Little girls on Long Island wait as long as 90 minutes to snag her signature after games at LaValle Stadium. "We have all the pieces this season and the mindset to win it all," coach Joe Spallina said.

Spallina and the talent is why this team is so good. He came in with a certain amount of cache from Adelphi with national titles. He promotes the program and sells the local kids on it. He schedules the big names and expects his kids to win, not to be just competetive. It really doesn't matter what conf you play in, you just have to strive for excellence. His model for success should be the model for all coaches at SB. He uses social media to his benefit and really sells what his program is doing. You don't hear the weather excuse when it comes to this team. They are the example of not needing an indoor practice facility in order to recruit. Big fish in a small pond seems to be working really well for Spallina and his team.

No. 8 Stony Brook 13, Northwestern 9

In a hard-fought battle on Long Island, Stony Brook prevailed over Northwestern, 13-9, to earn its first-ever berth into the NCAA quarterfinals. Tewaaraton finalist Kylie Ohlmiller posted six points (2G, 4A), while kid sister Taryn chipped in three goals and an assist. Danita Stroup posted a hat trick for the ‘Cats in defeat.

By The Numbers: 1
Stony Brook's win over Northwestern mark the first time in program history that the Seawolves are NCAA quarterfinal bound. Stony Brook will take on No. 1 seeded and undefeated Maryland.

X-Factor: Keri McCarthy, Stony Brook, Midfield, So.
Headed into second round action, Shelby Fredericks was averaging 8.42 draws per game – best for third nationally – and was coming off of a 12 draw performance vs. Albany on Friday evening. Sophomore Keri McCarthy held Fredericks to just five from the field, while grabbing a game-high nine of her own. Additionally, she chipped in two points (1G, 1A) of her own.

“I couldn’t do anything without coach Joe Spallina pushing me to do my best every day and seeing something in me in high school that no one else saw,” said Ohlmiller, a junior from nearby Islip, N.Y. “Or without the help of my teammates. Without them, I wouldn’t have as many assists or goals.”

In so many ways. It’s the year her younger sister, Taryn, debuted for the Seawolves. The freshman ranks second on the team, and seventh in the country, with 98 points. It’s also the year Stony Brook finally broke through.

1-seed Maryland vs. 8-seed Stony Brook

Stony Brook had two play two games to get here, routing NEC champion Bryant 21-6 then defeating Northwestern 13-9. The America East champion has won 15 consecutive games, scoring in double figures in all but one contest.

What could the game bring?
The traditional power vs. the new kids on the block: Maryland has been in the NCAA quarterfinal round every year since 2007 while Stony Brook makes its first-ever appearance in the quarterfinals.

Two of the top three scoring offenses enter, with Maryland averaging 17.05 goals per game and Stony Brook netting 16.29 goals per game. Stony Brook also has the nation’s top scoring defense with seven goals allowed a game, while Maryland is 13th at 9.05 goals allowed per game.

Matchup to watch: Stony Brook’s Kylie Ohlmiller vs. Maryland’s Nadine Hadnagy
A battle of Tewaaraton finalists: In the red corner, you have a human highlight reel attack that shoots and passes behind her back, shoots while falling, bounces shots, and can run everywhere.  On the other side of the ring, the best shutdown one-on-one close defender in the sport that has handled some of the best in the game. Ohlmiller has notched at least four points in every game this season, and Hadnagy has led a Maryland defense that has not lost yet. Something will have to give.

SB was and is better than the Terps this year and an lost to a school from the AE would be a totally embarrassing the the BIG10 and Maryland. The officials know this as well..

Ok, but where would we go? There's only one non-FBS move I think we should make if the opportunity arose and that would be to the A10. Any other league would be at best a lateral move that would baloon the travel costs for no good reason.

We're talking about LAX in particular, and LAX might be the AE's strongest sport with us and Albany frequently being ranked. Conference affiliation screws us over, but not necessarily in LAX. Hell if the NCAA rules were different, we may very well have found ourselves being an affiliate in the B1G. We're a public AAU flagship in NY. We're basically a B1G school without the tradition, enrollment, and massive football stadium.

Albany just beat North Carolina an ACC team in mens lax. Calls go agsinst teams all the time thats why its called homecooking. SB tried getting all sports to go to the CAA and was blocked by Hofstra. SB wont be joining a major conf anytime soon if not ever. All sports CAA would be the best option and maybe that can be revisited. This loss reminds me of the mens 2010 loss to Virginia in the quarters. This does set up nice for next yr at LaValle. Still frustrating, but the tank is still full.

  The CAA is nice but also a 1 bid league in  all sports including lax, baseball and hoops. The CAA is not an answer . I see us in the AE for quite awhile plodding along .  If you are going to move  up you need funding and an invite from an FBS Conference and that's a long way away .  This was a shame our girls lost  since they were  clearly they  were the better team on the field .

It was such a frustrating thing to see. I only watched the last few minutes or so, but we dominated the whole match only to lose it at the end. I never would have thought I'd care about a WLAX game, but I did. Soooo close.  >:(

58-15 fouls against SB is all on the Big10 officials and favoritism. The time for SB to move out of the AE is now.. SB was and is better than the Terps this year and an lost to a school from the AE would be a totally embarrassing the the BIG10 and Maryland. The officials know this as well.. This will continue to happen to any school associated with the AE. We see it in basketball and now lacrosse. I am sick to my stomach because SB had this game all the way to the end..

Ok, but where would we go? There's only one non-FBS move I think we should make if the opportunity arose and that would be to the A10. Any other league would be at best a lateral move that would baloon the travel costs for no good reason.

We're talking about LAX in particular, and LAX might be the AE's strongest sport with us and Albany frequently being ranked. Conference affiliation screws us over, but not necessarily in LAX. Hell if the NCAA rules were different, we may very well have found ourselves being an affiliate in the B1G. We're a public AAU flagship in NY. We're basically a B1G school without the tradition, enrollment, and massive football stadium.

Listen. I know and understand everything about the CAA being a one bid league, however. The CAA is a step or two higher than the AE conference as far a nationwide recognition and schools who are stronger in Athletics.. The A-10 is a Basketball league and thats great for SBB, but we still have many other sports. I feel as if the CAA would be the best bet for all sports at this time. I also understand the added travel time and cost associated with the move, it will be well worth it in  the long run if SB ever wants to jump up to a power conference, If they ever do..  This university needs to be more recognized and respected on the national landscape. The AE just doesnt cut it anymore for us.  Heck!! Hofstra only 25 miles west of SB and they are in the CAA!

Dont be surprised in a year or two UA and SB makes the move into the CAA for all sports. Both schools appear to do things in tandem I noticed..

I don't see what's gained from moving from one one-bid league to another. It just makes it harder for us to get that single bid and get exposure. I'm not even sure the CAA is a stronger BBall conference than the AE at this point, but that's another discussion.

We get exposure by winning and winning against good programs. The CAA might be a stronger league, but being in the best one bid conference in the country does us no good. I almost think we might be better of going the other way and dominating the weaker conference. At least then were winning, making playoff/NCAA tournament appearances, and getting positive exposure.

We're heading into our fifth season in the CAA Football conference and have nothing to show for it. Had we remained in the Big South, we'd have continued to dominate the league, make playoff appearances, and maybe steal a game or two in the FCS playoffs despite our horrid offense. Keep in mind that since we've left the Big South, both Coastal Carolina and Liberty, teams we frequently laid the beat down on have gone FBS.

Granted, football is a different beast than basketball (FCS at large bids) and I remain a fan of the CAA Football move, but it's something to think about. Is being 2nd place in a stronger league and never making the tournament superior to winning the weaker league and getting your name out there so people can see you play? It's something to think about. Maybe we should dominate the AE and position ourselves to make a big stride further down the road as opposed to taking baby steps now and potentially making it harder for us to move ahead. We've only been to the tournament once, but how many years has it been where we've only been a shot or two away from getting in?

Getting back to the game, ladies lax would almost certainly be in the Final Four were it not for the questionable NY State travel ban on North Carolina. It's why they were seeded 8th instead of 7th...because they couldn't travel to North Carolina. Navy beat UNC on Saturday and SBU is better than Navy, so there you have it.

I had no idea that was why we were seeded 8th instead of 7th. Is there a source on that or is it just conjecture? The travel ban I feel may come to bite us in the rear end at another time in the future in other sports though. Oh well. That's the price of taking a stand I guess.

NCAA committees look at SOS and other factors when time for seeding or invites into the playoffs. In Basketball for example, this is why you see a bunch of teams from at the power conference playing in the playoffs even though their conference records are bad..

OHLMILLER 'BEST PLAYER IN WOMEN'S GAME, PERIOD,' SPALLINA SAYS

In an intense quarterfinal bout, she went head-to-head with fellow finalist, Maryland defender Nadine Hadnagy, and led Stony Brook’s offense to 12 goals against a unit that had allowed that number only five times this season.

“She’s the best player in the women’s game, period,” Spallina said of Ohlmiller. “People can disagree with it. To me, proof is in the pudding. You can’t do more than she’s done, against everybody. She actually had some lower-scoring games against teams that aren’t as competitive. She had seven points today. When they played her with the dodge, she fed and when they played her to feed, she dodged. She deserves the Tewaaraton. It’s an absolute no-brainer.”

She’s at another level. She has seven points with the top defender in the country on her and a first-team All-American goalie and a first-team All-American defender. There’s not much more that that kid can do.”

“We’re built to last,” Spallina said. “We just went toe-to-toe with the best program in women’s lacrosse and we’re not going anywhere. Maybe now there’s more believers, but we don’t want them. Stay off the bandwagon, we’re coming for you next year.”

1. Kylie Ohlmiller’s historic season may have come to an end, but you might hear her name in a couple weeks at the Tewaaraton Ceremony. After setting the NCAA record for points and assists in a season, Ohlmiller is one of the top candidates for the award.

“She’s the best player in the women’s game, period,” Stony Brook coach Joe Spallina said of Ohlmiller. “People can disagree with it. To me, proof is in the pudding. You can’t do more than she’s done, against everybody. … She deserves the Tewaaraton. It’s an absolute no-brainer.”

Spallina’s words came after Stony Brook’s NCAA quarterfinal loss to Maryland —  a game in which the Seawolves led 11-7 with less than 15 minutes left. It’s the end of a great run for Ohlmiller and Stony Brook, but each has gained more attention along the way.

NO. 2 STONY BROOK
2017 record: 20-2 (6-0 America East)
Last seen: Playing the national champion to its hardest battle yet, with record breaker Kylie Ohlmiller shutting down their toughest defender.
Senior starts lost: 89 of 264 (33.7 percent)
Senior scoring departing: 120 of 576 points (20.8 percent)

Initial forecast: If you thought Stony Brook was lethal in 2017, there will be more of where that came from in 2018. It recorded just two losses on the year, with only one in the regular season to Florida, and defeated Top 20 teams Towson, Northwestern, USC and Colorado. Not only does Tewaaraton finalist Kylie Ohlmiller return after breaking the Division I single-season points record, formerly set by all-time great Jen Adams in 2001, but senior Courtney Murphy, who set the NCAA goals record in 2016, has one more year left after redshirting due to injury. The Seawolves’ biggest losses are Dorrien Van Dyke, who finished third in points, and Kristin Yevoli, who was second in draw controls, but they are still stacked next year. Draw specialist Keri McCarthy is back, as well as Ohlmiller’s sister, Taryn, who was second in points, goals and assists. As the team that nearly beat Maryland in the quarterfinals – and the only team to lead for the majority of the game against the national champion until the final two minutes – Stony Brook is poised to have a banner year in 2018.

I'm sure has or soon will being getting huge offers to coach at a power 5 school. He is also the HC for the pro Lacrosse Lizards team.

every time these conversations appear... it's helpful to keep in context:

-some guys are happy at home
-he's happy at SB and treated well
-camps, camps, camps (read $, $, $)
-job security elsewhere
-very few "bigger" jobs right now, and less likely to open
-will have sustained success in the AE
-money might not be better at other schools; keep in mind the profile/revenue of WLAX
-pool of talent in suffolk alone can sustain a top ten team, perennially
-kids in local schools
-spouse may be employed
-LI Lizards job
-state pension

and ill throw in one more.  spallina reminds me a bit of pete carroll during the USC days.  not only winning, but sort of making it look effortless.

I'm going to let in on a Little secret - not all power 5 schools pay their non-revenue coaches very well.  The MLax coach at UNC is probably not in the top 20 of highest paid coaches in lacrosse.

This year, both the Nittany Lions and Seawolves will be aiming for the final four – and a championship berth. Penn State last won the final in 1989, though Stony Brook has yet to reach the highest pedestal.

The playoff hopefuls will meet for the first time this year on Penn State’s home turf, kicking off the Nittany Lions’ fall ball tournament.

Looking Ahead: 2018's Top Returning Attack Units

Top 5 Attack Corps

1. Stony Brook
Stony Brook is the only team in Division I to return a pair of 100-point scorers, led by Tewaaraton finalist and America East Offensive Player of the Year senior Kylie Ohlmiller with her single season NCAA record 164 points off 78 goals and assists, and flanked by her sophomore sister and ILWomen Honorable Mention All-American and America East Rookie of the Year Taryn, who netted 101 points off 65 goals and 36 assists. Plus, senior Courtney Murphy is back after missing most of 2017 with a torn ACL; she had 100 goals in 2016. In a combined 151 games played by these three, they have 718 points off 475 goals and 243 assists.

ILWomen Fall All-Access: Stony Brook

Quote
Fresh off a 20-2 season that ended with a heartbreaker to eventual national champion Maryland in the NCAA quarterfinals, Stony Brook is determined to reach the top of the mountain.

Sixth-year head coach Joe Spallina described a “bitter” feeling his team felt leaving College Park, Md. after letting a four-goal second half lead disappear in a 13-12 loss to the top-seeded Terrapins. The near miss has added further fire for an already explosive Seawolf offense that was No. 3 in the country last year at 16.09 goals per game led by Tewaaraton finalist Kylie Ohmiller’s NCAA point record of 164. The potent offensive attack will be that much stronger in 2018 with the return of redshirt senior Courtney Murphy after missing most of last season due to injury following a 2016 campaign where she set an NCAA mark for goals with 100.

Stony Brook also brings back most of its starting defense, that was tops in the NCAA last year allowing just 7.27 goals per game led by junior goalie Anna Tesoriero. The biggest question mark will be at midfield with the graduation losses of Dorrien Van Dyke, (third in points) and Kristin Yevoli (second in draw controls) creating opportunities for others to step into the spotlight.

I visited Stony Brook late in its fall campaign. The offensive and defensive players were split up for some of the practice working on individual drills, but the two units are expected to be very much in sync this spring when the Seawolves strive capture the program's first national title Memorial Day weekend on their home field of LaValle Stadium.

Historic attack
The Seawolves’ attack features three career 100 point scorers in Murphy, Kylie Ohmiller and her younger sister Taryn, a trio that Spallina described as “a dream team.”

Murphy was in class during the Stony Brook practice I attended, but the Ohmiller sisters were in midseason form practicing a variety of stick dodges during individual drills. Kylie Ohmiller said the chemistry with her sister improved as the 2017 season progressed and is excited to resurrect her previous connection with Murphy.

“It’s insane to watch her come back and have a whole respect for the game, “ said Ohmiller of Murphy. “She is working her butt off and it is going to be cool to share our final season together and go out with a bang.”

Ohmiller drew faceguards in early every game last season and for 2018 the defensive focus may shift from matchup to matchup to the other two attackers. Practices have focused on preparing for different faceguard scenarios what adjustments each attacker should make.

“I think were going to see more of it,” said Ohmiller. “We’re trying to make sure were all ready for whatever the other throw against us.”

Sister Act
Taryn Ohmiller quickly emerged as Stony Brook’s future offensive star last year with 65 goals and 101 points. She took advantage of attention drawn to her sister and fostered a unique on field chemistry with Kylie that should only get better this spring.

“It’s really cool to have chemistry with a teammate, but when your teammate is your younger sister, you know how exactly how each other work,” said Kylie Ohmiller. “When we assist each other it is probably the coolest feeling in the whole world.”

Taryn Ohmiller said she working hard this fall to make improvements to make improvements to her footwork and dodging ability. At practice during one-on-one drills she was invoking various spin moves near the cage. Her closeness with Kylie was also apparent with plenty of joking around between sets.

“It’s awesome getting to play with my sister,” said Taryn Ohmiller. “It’s something we always dreamed of growing up so to get to play on this high of a level together on a top five team is really amazing.”

Who else will step up?
The gradation of Yevoli and Van Dyke means a bigger focus in the midfield for sophomore Ally Kennedy, who registered 39 goals last year, and senior Samantha Disalvo (33 goals).  Spallina said this spring is also an opportunity for seniors Tiffany Zullo and Emma Schait to fly at a high level after waiting in the wings. Spallina said freshmen that have emerged during the fall that should see important minutes this spring include former Mount Sinai High School teammates Rayna Sabella (midfield) and Haley Dillon (defense) along with Sarah Pulis (midfield).

Draws could be difference maker
Draw controls proved crucial in Stony Brook’s season-ending loss to Maryland with the Terrapins winning 19-of-26 including the final three of the game in their late rally from a 12-10 deficit.

Associate head coach Kim Hiller, who as a college player graduated as Hofstra’s second all-time program leader in draw wins, is working closely this fall with returning draw specialists Keri McCarthy and Kasey Mitchell in hopes of assuring Stony Brook’s lethal offense gets as many possessions as possible. Spallina said Pulis could also be a force in the circle given her height measures more than 6 feet.

“Draws have been a big point of emphasis for us,” said Spallina. “It’s the reason we lost the Maryland game.”

Coaching addition creates homecoming
Spallina added Kara Mupo as an assistant coach this fall after she spent the past two seasons on the William & Mary coaching staff. Mupo reunites with Spallina a decade after she starred as a player for him at Rocky Point High School. She then went onto Northwestern and won a pair of national titles at Stony Brook’s LaValle Stadium in 2011 and 2012 as one of the Wildcats’ top scorers.   

“Besides knowing me and the system and the way we do business, she is a winner and a champion,” Spallina said of Mupo. “She was a no-brainer hire for us.”

Bracing for challenging slate
Stony Brook’s fall schedule has featured competition among the nation’s best including  an Oct. 14 matchup with Boston College where the Seawolves won by an impressive 15-4 unofficial score. The autumn slate, which also featured Penn State, Florida and Cornell, serves as precursor for what Spallina says will be the toughest schedule in program history. Stony Brook opens up with a west coast trip to face USC and Stanford. The non-conference schedule also matches the Seawolves against Northwestern, Penn State, Towson, Cornell, Denver, Michigan, Johns Hopkins and Towson. Spallina said the grueling schedule is designed to boost Stony Brook’s RPI in order to obtain as high a seed as possible for the NCAAs.

Eyeing Memorial Day weekend at LaValle
Spallina has not shied away from reminding his players of the opportunity to play for a national championship on their home field in late May. The last time Stony Brook hosted championship weekend in 2012 was Spallina’s first year at the helm turning around a program that at the time had never reached an NCAA Tournament into one that is looking to be the last team standing.

“It would probably be definitely the coolest feeling in the world to walk out on our home turf and be in that Final Four so is something that is in the back of our heads every day,” said Kylie Ohmiller. “It is something that is going to motivate us and fuel our fire.”

Stony Brook

Any conversation about Stony Brook starts with Kylie Ohlmiller, and as expected, she played like a Tewaaraton finalist. She unofficially had two goals and two assists, with her first goal opening the scoring on a slick dodge near the crease that caused her defender to fall to the turf.

The Seawolves’ X-factor this season will likely be Courtney Murphy. She was on the field just over seven months after tearing her ACL against Northwestern on March 5, and although she showed some rust early by missing high and wide, Florida still face-guarded her.

Murphy scored three times – twice on feeds from Ohlmiller – an important sign of Stony Brook’s concerted effort to get her going.

Coach Joe Spallina said that getting Murphy volume is important at this point in the season.

“For us, it’s just more of a timing thing,” he said. “I think they did a good job of playing her inside. They generally play well against her. In a real game situation, we’d probably move her around and move somebody else in there.”

Spallina said he was happy with being able to get most of his players into the contest. With 10 returning starters, he’s looking to sort out the rest of the roster.

“Our eyes are on the finish line,” he said. “In order to be a good team at the finish line, we know we have to continue to take the necessary steps here and develop the depth. … We got to try different things on the draw; we got to try different defensive people. Today we got to play a lot of kids against a great opponent.”

Freshmen Rayna Sabella, Sarah Pulis, Haley Dillon and Rachel Williams received extended run. Spallina said Marlee Moon Gaddy is someone he hopes to “groom to get into that left-handed attack spot down the road.”

1. The UWLX College Draft took over Twitter on Wednesday night. The Baltimore Ride, Boston Storm, Long Island Sound and Philadelphia Force selected several collegiate stars that will graduate in 2018.

The Storm drafted Stony Brook attacker Kylie Ohlmiller as the No. 1 overall pick after she set a Division I record in 2017 with 164 points, previously held by all-time great Jen Adams.

Other big names were selected throughout the 16-round draft, including Ohlmiller’s teammate and fellow record holder Courtney Murphy.

Murphy, who returns this spring for the Seawolves after tearing her ACL and setting the single-season NCAA goals record in 2016, was selected at No. 36 by the Sound.

Spallina is entering his seventh season as the head coach at Stony Brook and has transformed the program into one of the nation’s best. The Seawolves have reached the NCAA tournament five straight years, and last season won a school record 20 games while pushing eventual national champion Maryland to the brink in a 13-12 loss in the NCAA quarterfinals. Spallina is 101-20 as head coach at Stony Brook, and prior to that went 73-2 in four years at Adelphi, winning three NCAA Division II titles. A 1996 graduate of Adelphi, Spalling was a four-year starting midfielder and helped the Panthers win two NCAA Division II championships.

Courtney Murphy was arguably the most naturally talented player in her recruiting class most other top programs had never heard of. She certainly wasn’t on any freshman watch list, either. But everyone soon learned her name when posted seven goals and eight points in her debut vs. Bucknell Feb. 15, 2014. She finished the season with 61 goals. No other freshman in the country had more. She was named to ILWomen’s All-Rookie Team.

As much hype as she received, Stony Brook head coach Joe Spallina knew she could be better. He’d tell her if she became a full-time student-athlete, she’d be a first-team All-American. She fulfilled that prophesy her junior year, scoring 100 goals to break Delaware’s Karen Emas’ longstanding record of 98. But Syracuse ousted the Seawolves for the second time in three years.

Murphy thought about it and finally started responding to her teammate’s messages. Around the same time, she received hundreds of cards from young Long Island girls, the same ones who are willing to wait more than an hour after a Stony Brook game to get her autograph. She wasn’t completely convinced, but she was starting to have a chance of heart. At the urging of teammates like Kylie, Van Dyke and Yevoli, she decided to travel with the team to Florida.

Murphy had to keep pushing. Instead of starting a new job, she interned for the Wall Street firm, doing physical therapy at 4 a.m. twice a week. It was hectic and she wasn’t able to fully focus on her recovery. When she came back in August, she wasn’t cleared, a benchmark she had set for herself.

With the “dream team” on the same page and a No. 2 national ranking, the expectations are higher than ever for the 2018 Seawolves. Murphy feels the weight, but after a year of wondering what the future had in store for her, she’s on board with one cliché: Any game could be anyone’s last.

NCAA CHAMPIONSHIP HOST STONY BROOK HAS ITS EYES ON THE PRIZE
https://www.uslaxmagazine.com/college/women/ncaa-championship-host-stony-brook-has-its-eyes-on-the-prize

Quote
The last time the Long Island school hosted was in 2012 after being awarded the rights for the first time in 2011. As a well-known hotbed, Kenneth P. Lavalle Stadium, home of the Seawolves, drew two of the six largest crowds in the championship game’s history.

“The final four is in our building and we’re equipped,” Spallina said.

“We don’t have one of the top 50 or 100 recruits coming out of high school, but we have a top five team,” Spallina said. “It’s how you lead, not necessarily how you get there. It’s our mantra, our attitude and our chip on our shoulder.”

The Seawolves’ biggest losses are midfielders Dorrien Van Dyke, who finished third in points, and Kristin Yevoli, who was second in draw controls. Spallina has plans in place for players to step in their shoes, but the draw as a whole remains a big question mark. It was the one area that blatantly stood out in the quarterfinal loss to Maryland. The Terps had a 19-7 edge. “I think personally we wore out in that game in the sense we didn’t have the ball enough,” Spallina said. “I have both my assistants working tirelessly on that.”

The season starts in California against the Pac-12’s top teams, USC and Stanford, followed by Denver and Northwestern. If all goes well, a win in an April tilt against Penn State could solidify a seed and a potential first-round bye for the Seawolves.

'GOOD ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH' FOR PRESEASON PLAYER OF YEAR KYLIE OHLMILLER
https://www.uslaxmagazine.com/college/women/good-isnt-good-enough-for-preseason-player-of-year-kylie-ohlmiller

Quote
Among the 7,127 in attendance at the 2012 NCAA Division I women’s lacrosse championship at Stony Brook’s Kenneth P. LaValle stadium were two young sisters watching in awe as Northwestern earned its seventh national title with an 8-6 win over Syracuse.

The Ohlmiller sisters, 10th-grader Kylie and eighth-grader Taryn, who would soon play together at Islip (N.Y.) High School and later Stony Brook, took in the atmosphere – the packed stands, the deafening cheers and the sight of Katrina Dowd, a Northwestern alum and Kylie’s role model for her creative style of play.

“I recruit a little differently than a lot of places,” Spallina said. “I don’t really want the finished product. I really enjoy the teaching part of the game and the evolution of an athlete. I just saw something in her. I saw a kid who was overlooked and really loved and had a passion for the game. … I told her the first time we met that she was going to be star.”

She’s the best period on the planet, period. Case closed,” Spallina said. “I may be a little biased, but her body of work speaks for itself. She’s not a one-trick pony. The leadership of K.O. is unseen, but she gets it. She’s vested.”

With their personnel, says Spallina, championship weekend seems within reach, and according to Kylie Ohlmiller, Stony Brook has entered a new era.

“Coach Spallina says all the time we went from being the 70th ranked team in the country to now No. 2,” Kylie Ohlmiller said. “It’s all in tribute to how we worked every day.”

"We get to play as Long Island's team," Kylie Ohlmiller said. "We get to be those role models ... for the little girls on Long Island who are looking for those role models right here at home."

In 2018, Ohlmiller will continue her three-hour morning workouts with her sister, cut in line to get more reps in and meet with Spallina after every practice because “she’s in a lot of ways an assistant coach for me,” Spallina said.

“That’s a huge part of why I play the game,” Ohlmiller said. “It’s for those little girls. I might not have been a little girl when I came to watch the national championship here at Stony Brook in 2012, but I was still looking up to those girls who were out on the field. It’s amazing to have the roles reversed.”

“The Michael Jordan factor, as I always say, is that player who is really good, but can they raise the level of everyone around them?” Spallina said. “We don’t have any of the top 50 recruits in the country, so when you look at what Kylie’s done, she gives every kid that hope. … I have a fifth grade Yellow Jackets team and every single one of them think my girls walk on water and Kylie is Superwoman, so I’ve seen the immediate impact.”

SBU women eye NCAA lacrosse title
https://www.newsday.com/sports/college/stony-brook/stony-brook-womens-lacrosse-preview-1.16666870

Quote
The stage is set for the Stony Brook women’s lacrosse team to do something previously unimaginable.

With the NCAA Women’s Final Four scheduled for Memorial Day weekend at LaValle Stadium, Stony Brook has the opportunity to win the national championship at home . . . and coach Joe Spallina knows he has the pieces to do it.

“I feel like this team checks all the boxes,” he said. “Obviously a lot has to go right to win a national title, let alone a Final Four. We just want to be 1-0. That’s what I always tell the girls.”

Spallina’s defense ranked No. 1 nationally four of the last five years (it was No. 2 in 2016). The offense ranked third last season, averaging 16.09 goals per game. Redshirt senior Brooke Gubitosi said both units challenge each other.

This all adds up to a potentially historic season. The Seawolves don’t see it any other way.

“That’s one of the things we talk about every day; we want to do this for our seniors,” Taryn Ohlmiller said. “We want to do this as a team together. This is our time.”

WOMEN'S NOTEBOOK: MURPHY SET TO RETURN FOR STONY BROOK
https://www.uslaxmagazine.com/college/women/womens-notebook-murphy-set-to-return-for-stony-brook

Quote
THE WEEK TO COME
Murphy Returns to Action

No. 2 Stony Brook nearly turned the upset of the year last season, falling by a goal at Maryland to be denied the program’s first NCAA semifinal appearance. The remarkable season was largely done without 100-goal scorer Courtney Murphy, who played in only four games.

Now Murphy is back and she’ll be paired with Kylie Olhmiller, a 78-goal scorer from a year ago. The senior duo and their teammates are set to open their season at No. 5 USC on Friday.


Ranked Matchup to Watch, Part I

No. 5 USC vs. No. 2 Stony Brook (Friday, 10 p.m. ET): The offensive firepower of the Seawolves will face the stellar goalkeeping of USC’s Gussie Johns. Stony Brook holds a 2-1 lead in the series including last season’s 9-7 victory in New York. Friday’s game is being played at Lebard Stadium in Costa Mesa, California, as part of the Orange County Lacrosse Showcase.

Beating a top 5 team by four goals on the road while being doubled up on draw controls says a lot about this team. But unless USC simply has the nation’s best draw control specialist, SB needs to narrow the gap against top teams if they hope to roll to the national championship.

agreed with the above.  what i saw-

our middies are fast.  especially kennedy.  spallina has them in shape.

our ball movement is the best in the country.  we move with crisp passes, every one is right in the box.  it's playoff form in february.  our fundamentals are great.  and some even switch hands often.

they double x quickly (kylie).  no problem; weve got another.  and murphy.

USC blew some opportunities by throwing the ball away.  with that said, they are good shooters and a great team.

one thing i think we can fix, other than faceoffs- we lost a few opportunities with what i thought were unnecessary BTBs.  then again its about putting asses in seats and building an identity and a program.  especially in a neutral site.

4. The Brine/US Lacrosse Player of the Week is Stony Brook’s Courtney Murphy. She tallied a team-high eight points in her return to the field since tearing her ACL, helping the Seawolves to a season-opening 14-10 win over USC.

5. No. 2 Stony Brook continued to roll with a 15-9 win over Stanford on Monday night to complete its season-opening West Coast trip. The 2017 Tewaaraton finalist Kylie Ohlmiller broke out for an eight-point performance on six goals and two assists. Her sister, Taryn, recorded five points.

STONY BROOK GOAL!

It's Kylie Ohlmiller again!

No. 2 — Stony Brook Seawolves (2-0)
The women from Long Island opened the season in California, knocking off USC and Stanford in a pair of easy victories. Against the Trojans, Courtney Murphy notched eight points, while Kylie Ohlmiller recorded seven points against the Cardinal. But the Seawolves leading scorer? Taryn Ohlmiller, who has eight goals and four assists. Good luck stopping that offense.

Eighteen of Stony Brook’s 29 goals this season have been assisted, a testament to the team’s passing ability.
