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.

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.

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.

“Give me a team full of Kylies,” Spallina said. “When you have your best player setting the example it’s hard to fail. I love watching how excited she gets when she sees other teammates score.”

Looking forward, the Seawolves are positioned well to be a serious contender for a national title. Their difficult schedule continues on Sunday when Denver visits before a Big Ten weekend at No. 15 Northwestern and Michigan. The non-conference schedule also features teams like No. 9 Towson, No. 17 Cornell, Johns Hopkins and No. 18 Penn State.

Not going to the Big 10 for lacrosse only- AE is still a solid and growing conference for LAX. I have no objections. You have the #1 Mens and Women's teams coming from our conference, does not make any sense to move.

Anyway, another great win against a Top 10 opponent today against Northwestern. Stony Brook wins out they should be the national #1 seed and not have to deal with the BS that we had to deal with last year.

Hope the Men's program can follow their lead.

No. 14 Towson at No. 1 Stony Brook
Saturday, 5 p.m., AmericaEast.TV

Stony Brook has yet to be beaten with its No. 1 scoring defense, plus its offensive stars Kylie and Taryn Ohlmiller and Courtney Murphy. The Seawolves are first in points per game thanks to Kylie Ohlmiller (No. 4 with 6.17 per game) and Murphy (No. 5 with 6.00 per game), as well as assists per game thanks to Taryn Ohlmiller (No. 1 with 3.50 per game). But Stony Brook is also first in turnovers per game. If the Tigers want a shot at an upset, they need to play its signature high-pressure defense as they are tied for third with Wagner in caused turnovers per game.

Kylie Ohlmiller vs. Everybody Else
Ohlmiller continued to fuel the Tewaaraton fire in week six, with back-to-back game-high performances against Delaware and Towson. Against the Blue Hens mid-week, she posted ten points on six goals and four assists—all of which were game-highs. She followed that up with seven goals and an assist vs. Towson on Saturday afternoon. The win pushed Stony Brook’s undefeated streak to seven consecutive games and marked the program’s fifth win over a ranked opponent this spring.

Women’s Tewaaraton Watch: Kylie Ohlmiller or Sam Apuzzo?
Two Long Island upperclassmen have emerged as the favorites for the award midway through the 2018 season.

One additional note on Ohlmiller: right now she has 395 career points, 51 shy of breaking Jen Adams’ all-time NCAA career record of 445. In addition, she has 197 career assists, which is 28 shy of breaking Hannah Nielsen’s all-time NCAA career record of 224.

If she maintains her combined scoring pace from the last two seasons, she would break the points record at home against UMBC on April 21 and the assists record at home against Penn State on April 24.

As for Kylie, she might be the best lacrosse passer on the planet, in either gender. In an interview last year, she called the chemistry she has with her sister Taryn “telepathy.” Here is a behind-the-back feed from Kylie to Taryn from the Towson game.

Other than her unmatched field vision, Ohlmiller is able to produce so well on offense because of her balance. When she plays, she constantly is twisting at the hips, bending at the knees and back, and switching handedness to avoid defenders.

1. No. 1 Stony Brook won its 10th straight game and remained one of two unbeaten teams with a 19-4 defeat of Cornell in one of just three games on the NCAA Division I women's schedule yesterday.

Ally Kennedy and Courtney Murphy scored five goals each to lead the Seawolves, and the former dished out two assists to set a career high with seven points. Murphy now stands three goals away from eclipsing Gail Cummings-Danson as the NCAA's all-time leader with 289 goals. Stony Brook won 12 draws in the first half to take a 14-3 lead. The Seawolves head to Hartford Thursday.

The story of Courtney Murphy, the women’s lacrosse goal queen
A look at how a B-level club player who won three games in high school has etched her name into the NCAA record book
https://www.collegecrosse.com/2018/4/14/17235846/the-story-of-courtney-murphy-the-womens-lacrosse-goal-queen-stony-brook

Quote
Many coaches didn’t see her play, being a B squad club player on a bad high school team. Others were skeptical. They said she was just a “catch-and-shoot” player. They didn’t like her big personality. They doubted her athleticism.

The numbers are unbelievable. Murphy has scored a hat trick in 56 of 78 career games. She’s the only player, male or female, to score 100 goals in a single season.

In 27 career America East conference games, Murphy has 124 goals. In those games, the opposing teams have 123 goals.

Stony Brook began having autograph sessions after every game, the best attended in the nation. Little girls across Long Island wanted to wear No. 18 and No. 17 to be like Murph or Kylie.

7 lacrosse records that are most likely to be broken this season
https://www.ncaa.com/news/lacrosse-men/article/2018-04-12/7-lacrosse-records-are-most-likely-be-broken-season

Quote
Kylie Ohlmiller, Stony Brook, Career Points, Assists
Ohlmiller gives us a two for one on this list. After setting the record for points in a single season during her junior year, Ohlmiller will most likely wrap up her career as the all-time leader in career points. She has to beat the record of 445 points set by Jen Adams for Maryland in 1998-2001. The senior is currently 23 points away from breaking Adams’ record. She's averaging almost seven points per game, so this is easily obtainable for the senior.

Another stand out stat for Ohlmiller’s junior year was her 86 assists last season. That puts her on track to potentially set the record for career assists. Northwestern alum Hannah Nielsen recorded 224 career assists from 2006-09. The senior currently has 31 assists this season, brining her career total to 208. This season, she is averaging 2.6 assists per game, and given the Seawolves success this season, Ohlmiller could find himself with some more game appearances to get close to beating the previous record.

And a fun fact to go with all the accolades, all of this earned Stony Brook's star to become the school's first female bobblehead.


Quote
Stony Brook - Team Records
With the help of Ohlmiller, as well as other 2018 season offensive stat leaders on the Seawolves team, the top-ranked Stony Brook’s women’s team is on pace to break several team records this season.

Last year they set the record for assists per game, averaging 10.09 (222 in 22 games). So far this season, the squad has tallied 129 assists through 12 games (10.75 average per game).

Let’s also add points per game. In 2017, Stony Brook averaged 26.18 (576 in 22 games). The Seawolves currently have 336 points through 12 games.

One last one! Stony Brook is also on track to break the record for scoring margin per game in a season. In 2009, Northwestern set the record at 10.83 (407 goals, 158 goals allowed in 23 games). Currently, the Stony Brook squad is at 11.25 (207 goals, 72 goals allowed in 12 games).

Quote
Kylie Ohlmiller, Stony Brook, Attack, Sr.
-What’s her argument? A season ago, Ohlmiller broke two longstanding single-season NCAA records in Jen Adams’ points record (148) and Hannah Nielsen’s assists record (83), setting her own single-season records with 164 points and 86 assists. This spring, she’s posted 57 goals and 36 assists, bringing her career total to 224 goals and 220 assists for 444 career points. She is now just two points shy of Jen Adams’ NCAA career points mark (445), and five assists away from Hannah Nielsen’s NCAA career record total of 224.

-Last time out: In a weekend swing that brought Johns Hopkins to town on Friday evening and New Hampshire on Sunday’s Senior Day, Ohlmiller totaled 21 points. Against the Blue Jays, posted game-highs in goals (6) and helpers (5) to follow that up with a hat trick and a game-high seven assists vs. New Hampshire.

-Top performance in 2018: Ohlmiller’s had a number of highlight-reel worthy performances in 2018, but I think her most important performances came in a pair of crucial wins for Stony Brook in terms of NCAA Tournament seeding. Against Towson on March 17 (W, 13-8), Ohlmiller scored a game-high seven goals and dished out an assist. She scored five of the game’s final seven goals to keep the win in place. Two weeks prior, she posted five points (3G, 2A) in the Seawolves’ win over Northwestern, 15-10. All three sit alongside one another in the NCAA RPI ranks released on April 8: No. Towson, No. 8 Stony Brook and No. 9 Northwestern.

Carolyn Carrera’s play makes SBU senior day a winner
https://www.newsday.com/sports/college/stony-brook/carolyn-carrera-s-play-sbu-makes-senior-day-a-winner-1.18063952

Carrera, a starting defender in every game this season, contributed most in the draw circle. Considered the No. 2 option on the depth chart behind junior Keri McCarthy, Carrera drew the start in the circle as a senior and dominated, helping Stony Brook win 25 of 28 draws.

“I think it’s really a tribute just to the mentality we have on this entire team,” said Carrera, who played her first two years at Hofstra. “Every day we’re getting after it, so we have draw practice every single day. Yeah, I wasn’t seeing that time on the field in the games, but we were still putting in that work every single day.”

Stony Brook’s senior class has been instrumental in the program’s rise to the top of the rankings, accruing 86 wins to date and winning each of the last five America East championships. Gubitosi, a defender who scored her second career goal Sunday, was happy to share the field with her class.

Quote
Given this breakdown, we seed Team B first (Maryland), Team A (Boston College) second and Team C (Stony Brook) third. The Eagles jump Stony Brook from last week’s bracket projections and could overtake Maryland if they finish the season undefeated.

Despite an undefeated record, Stony Brook will be bogged down by a weak America East schedule that has been made even weaker in the absence of another NCAA Tournament-caliber team like Albany. A quality home game against Penn State remains on April 24, but that will be the only decent game remaining on the schedule. Nevertheless, should the Seawolves win out, they’ll be seeded among the top four and home games through the entire tournament as they are the hosts of the NCAA semifinals and final this year.

The Seawolves boast the No. 1 scoring defense and No. 2 scoring offense, while also sitting first in assists per game, points per game and shot percentage – so the Stony Brook women's lacrosse Twitter account promptly responded.

Kylie Ohlmiller (Islip, N.Y.) broke the NCAA Division I career points record in the first half of play, surpassing the previous record set by Maryland's Jen Adams (445). She became the NCAA Division I career assist leader in the second half of play, breaking the previous record for helpers set by Northwestern's Hannah Nielsen (224). Ohlmiller now has 62 goals and 49 assists for 111 total points in 2018.

KYLIE OHLMILLER SETS TWO NCAA CAREER RECORDS AS STONY BROOK ROLLS
https://www.uslaxmagazine.com/college/women/kylie-ohlmiller-sets-two-ncaa-career-records-as-stony-brook-rolls

Quote
UMBC's Carolyn Jamison scored her second goal of the game with 10:14 remaining in the opening half to tie the score 5-5, and then Stony Brook happened.

The Seawolves exploded for nine goals in the final 10 minutes of the first half, highlighted by a behind-the-back goal by Kylie Ohlmiller, which gave the senior 446 points for her career to break Jen Adams (Maryland 1998-2001) 17-year-old NCAA career scoring mark.

My biggest thing is making sure we get a win in the next game and making sure we get wins throughout the board so we’re home for the next month or so and we can have a million more senior days.

Friday night drew 3,123 people for the team’s game against No. 22 Johns Hopkins, the largest crowd for a single game in women’s lacrosse program history. Many of the fans were lining up two hours in advance of the 7 p.m. start time.

It was unreal,” Ohlmiller said. “It’s been pretty amazing to see how we’ve turned this program around into Long Island’s team in general. Just to see the amount of people lined up outside for this one game, it was just really, really cool. It’s very humbling because it’s a tribute to all of our hard work.

“I’ve never hidden from the fact that she’s the best player in the world,” Spallina said. “She’s the best player in NCAA lacrosse. I would put my name on that. I’m not going to hide from that. I’ve been saying that for years.”

America East: May 4-6
Format: The America East women’s lacrosse tournament, like the men’s tournament, is a four-team tournament hosted by the top seed. The two semifinal games will be played on Friday, May 4, and the finals will be on Sunday, May 6.

Seeding: The four teams are already determined: Stony Brook, Albany, Binghamton and New Hampshire. This Saturday, April 28, Stony Brook will play at Albany at 12 p.m. to determine the top seed (loser will get the 2nd seed). At the same time, New Hampshire will play at Binghamton to determine the 3rd and 4th seeds.

What’s at stake? With Albany having a down year, the America East is a one-bid league. Stony Brook, being the top team in the country, will get in regardless. The other three teams would have to pull off the shocking upset to make the NCAA field.

Stony Brook is looking for its sixth straight America East title.

Where to watch? The America East Tournament can be watched on WatchESPN, with the finals being played on ESPNU.

Friday 4/4, Semifinals:

5 p.m.   #1 vs. #4
7:30 p.m.   #2 vs. #3
* (Top seed gets preference of early or late game; Stony Brook has traditionally preferred the early game should they have the right to choose.)

Sunday 4/6, Finals:

12 p.m.
The prediction: Stony Brook and it won’t really be close. (Disclaimer: I work as the radio play-by-play for the Stony Brook women’s team.)

Women's lacrosse National Player of the Week (April 25): Kylie Ohlmiller, Stony Brook
http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/college/lacrosse/lacrosse-blog/bs-sp-womens-lacrosse-player-0424-story.html

Quote
On Saturday, Ohlmiller became the NCAA Division I women’s lacrosse all-time leader in points and assists. With eight points in a 22-7 win over UMBC, Ohlmiller ran her career total to 452, surpassing the record of 445 set by Maryland’s Jen Adams in 2001. She broke the record with a behind-the-back goal in the first half. With six assists in the game, she also broke the record for career assists with 226, moving past Northwestern’s Hannah Nielsen, who set the record of 224 in 2009. With two goals and five assists in Tuesday’s 21-13 win over No. 16 Penn State, she ran her record totals to 459 and 231. Ohlmiller, a 2017 Tewaaraton Award finalist, and the Division I Attacker of the Year, broke the Division I single-season points and assists records a year ago with 164 and 86. This spring, she has 64 goals and 54 assists to lead the No. 1 Seawolves in scoring as they remain one of only two undefeated Division I teams.

Stony Brook, James Madison among teams to clinch top seeds in conference tournaments
Many games on Saturday had direct implications toward conference championship seedings. Let’s go through some of them quickly:

Stony Brook 21, Albany 8: The Seawolves clinched America East hosting rights with a dominant performance on the road against Albany. Kylie Ohlmiller had a 10-point game for the Seawolves, as the senior now has 128 points on the season, putting her 31 away from 500 career points. Earlier this season, Ohlmiller had become the second player ever to reach 400 career points.


North Carolina’s win makes next Sunday’s bracket selection very interesting. Stony Brook is the only undefeated team remaining. Boston College, Maryland and James Madison all only have one loss with North Carolina accounting for both the BC and Maryland defeats. North Carolina lost to James Madison on the road in double-OT way back in the season opener February 10. Stony Brook did not play any of the other four teams pitting for a top-4 NCAA Tournament seed.

As for the NCAA Tournament, the bracket will be revealed on Sunday at 9 p.m. on NCAA.com. Although we have been ranked No. 1 in all three major polls for 10 straight weeks, our RPI is only 6 because of our conference. My response to that: We are the best team in the nation and absolutely deserve to be the No. 1 seed.

- 8-0 vs. ranked opponents in 2018, outscoring those teams 128-64
- No. 1 non-conference adjusted RPI (.72491) in the nation
- Ranks No. 1 nationally in six Division I major team statistics: points per game (29.59), scoring margin (+11.35), assists per game (11.59), shot percentage (.532), turnovers per game (11.71), and team defense (6.65 goals-allowed per contest)
- NCAA Division I career leaders in total points (Kylie Ohlmiller - 469), total goals (Courtney Murphy - 234), and total assists (Kylie Ohlmiller - 235)

Then, what do you do with Stony Brook? The consensus No. 1 team in the human polls, Stony Brook’s numbers are good, but strength of schedule has taken a hit since entering America East play. The Seawolves remain undefeated, but in main selection criteria used for seeding, they likely will fall short of the Tar Heels who have a superior RPI, strength of schedule and more quality wins.

And Joe Spalina is hot as Hell right now. The Twitter board is on fire.. I say just win out and stick it to the committee .

UA got a #2 Seed with two losses and one really bad blemish on their record. Make it to the Championship game and the Committee will have no choice but to start respecting SB, otherwise heads will be rolling from the top!!!!!!!

Stony Brook. Stony Brook. Stony Brook.

It’s becoming a theme, everyone.

For a second straight year, the Seawolves feel maligned by the operation of the NCAA Selection Committee. Stony Brook is the No. 5 seed despite being a unanimous No. 1 in all human polls because objective analysis of the selection criteria dictates it so. Even committee chair Janna Blais agrees.

“[The Seawolves] are truly an outstanding team,” Blais said. “I expect them to go very far in the tournament. We couldn’t get them higher when we looked at the criteria.”

“[The Seawolves] are truly an outstanding team,” Blais said. “I expect them to go very far in the tournament. We couldn’t get them higher when we looked at the criteria.”

“That’s a really difficult piece of our process — we can’t take into consideration the eye test,” Blais continued. “It’s not part of the criteria. We don’t look at when a win occurred in the season. We don’t take into consideration injuries at a particular game or when they lost to or another team. We end up splitting hairs over significant wins and what is considered a significant loss.”

PLAYERS TO WATCH
Kylie Ohlmiller, Stony Brook

The senior out of Islip, N.Y., has been terrorizing opposing defenses all year. Ohlmiller has 145 points this season on 81 goals and 64 assists. Included in that are five games with at least 10 points.

It was always going to be hard to slot Stony Brook because of its lack of comparable schedule with the other teams and its conference schedule is so poor. Nevertheless, the Seawolves did nothing wrong. This probably speaks more to the procedure than this committee, but it seems like the criteria might need some tweaking to allow for the Stony Brooks of the world to exist and succeed. (For example, introduce a winning percentage component for the significant win criteria.)

It was the second straight year Stony Brook got a questionably low seed. Last year, Stony Brook was the No. 8 seed and gave Maryland its toughest game of the tournament, falling 13-12 in the NCAA quarterfinals. Six of Stony Brook's wins this year came against tournament teams.

"Wherever they put us, I'm not going to cry about it," said Stony Brook head coach Joe Spallina when he visited US Lacrosse for the Major League Lacrosse Draft in April. "I'm not sure If we get mis-seeded, that it's going to be fair to the team that has to play us because in my opinion we're the best team."

Stony Brook women’s lacrosse team wins America East title
The Stony Brook women's lacrosse team celebrates after defeating Albany in the America East championship game at LaValle Stadium on Sunday.

Quote
The Seawolves’ offense started slowly because Albany (9-9) locked off the dodge of Kylie Ohlmiller. Spallina then switched Taryn Ohlmiller into the feeder’s role. This change, which Spallina is comfortable making, helped the offense go on a 12-2 run to erase a 7-6 deficit.

“They were locking off Kylie’s dodge, so that was our cue to put Kylie in the middle and have her cut,” Taryn Ohlmiller said. “If you lock off her dodge, we just use her a different way.”

Murphy and Brooke Gubitosi are redshirt seniors who now have five America East titles. They’ve experienced only one AE defeat in five years, an overtime loss to Vermont as freshmen.

Yep, predictably, we got screwed over again by the committee. They just don't respect anybody not in the P5 (even though JMU got the 3 seed, the hell....). It would help to get out of the AE and at least get into the CAA for everything and get the perception bump that comes with that. Damn Hofstra...

On the bright side, the final four is going to be right here at Lavalle, and even as the top seed, we'd be playing a very tough one loss team anyway, so effectively this doesn't really matter too much. Let's just win out and get that national title on our home field. BC, Maryland, JMU, UNC.... all very good teams, so I don't necessarily think we'd have dodged a bullet by getting a higher seed.

This time more obvious than ever!

As I posted on FB earlier. I'm sure the Committee placed them as 5th seed because it didn't want an easy path for Stony Brook. If Stony Brook was anything higher than a fifth seed they would be hosting the second round and the QF (if they win against Penn St. /UPenn) and then play at home the rest of the way (Semifinals/Championship hosted at LaValle) assuming they win. This is a big IF and we shouldn't get ahead of ourselves... But the NCAA is avoiding a non-power 5 getting such a path at all costs.

You are talking on the men's side vs women's side. Not a fair comparison.

We are talking about Stony Brook having the opportunity of playing every game at home all the way to the NCAA championship game. You know the NCAA won't make it THAT easy for non power-5 program even if they deserved the #1 or #2 seed. I don't think the sex of the coach has to do much with it.

Pardon my ignorance here, but how are you ranked # 1 in the official national poll all year, going undefeated, and come out with a #5 seed nationally in the playoffs?   Makes zero sense at all.  If they were undefeated all season, but ranked #5 nationally due to strength of schedule, that would be understandable.  But this?  Who are these morons who put the seedings together?

On a positive note, if I'm Stony Brook, I'm pissed as all hell, and I would use this to fuel motivation throughout the tournament.  Lots of pressure being # 1 and going undefeated heading into a Tournament, but to be slapped and reduced to a # 5 after the historic season they've had.....well, that might be ingredient needed to forget the pressure of being # 1 all year, and kick everyone's ass in the Tournament.

Good luck ladies; make SBU proud!

also keep in mind one minor difference- the women's game has a larger field (27) and more teams and a larger presence in the midwest and west coast (south too).  therefore, QF sites are scattered better.  whereas the men's side, most of it is the 95 corridor.  thus, north is hofstra, south is navy.  and so your top 4 seeds might get the advantage of being near those sites (or, if hosting, a home game!).

Good article; I should have read it before posting.  I didn’t realize that they were a #6 in RPI and a mid-30’s in strength of schedule. Puts a different perspective on it.

However, it really devalues the meaning of the season poll.

Assuming a round of 16 win, that BC game on the road could be a real thorn in their side. That difference between being a #4 and a #5 could turn out to be huge.

I get it that schools want to save on travel costs, but this is postseason play with national championships on the line. They do this non-sense in the FCS playoffs too. Give one team a harder bracket just because they're closer to another team.

Looking at the teams that are in on the men's side: UVA, Notre Dame, Syracuse, Cornell, Denver..... none of those schools are hurting for money I can tell you that much. If damn Chicago St. can afford to fly their teams all over the country for WAC basketball when the state of Illinois didn't even give them a budget...

True, but Hofstra has been blocking us from the CAA forever. Maybe if we win the national title, it could be enough of a catalyst to get the rest of the league to add us for all sports. It'd be the cherry on top of what we already offer.

http://www.insidelacrosse.com/article/snubs-surprises-why-stony-brook-is-a-no-5-seed-and-more-from-women-s-ncaa-di-bracket/52199

Quote
Here's what I was surprised most about:

-The committee dropped the Seawolves THIS low. Stony Brook boasts wins over USC, Stanford, Denver, Northwestern, Towson, Johns Hopkins and Penn State—all but one are NCAA Tournament teams this year.

-The committee seemingly didn't take into consideration losses as much as "quality" wins (i.e. North Carolina's 3 vs. a combined 3 between BC, JMU, MD & SB; more on that below.)

-Stony Brook being an America East team hurt them as much as it did. While I understand RPI and what goes into factoring these rankings, I think it's somewhat antiquated and not in-tune with this sport's growth. It's fantastic that teams from nontraditional power conferences are making waves in the DI ranks, but often these teams are punished when it comes to seeding in this tournament. I also think this hurt teams out west, namely Stanford.

-The national polls didn't mean anything. Hey, I get it. They rarely ever do in this conversation annually. But when an expert poll—especially that of the IWLCA Poll, comprised solely of voters that are college coaches, playing these teams week-in and week-out—has been voting a single team as the nation's top for the majority of the season, I think that says something.

So to close this one out, because of RPI and quality wins I didn't think that the NCAA would reward Stony Brook with the No. 1 seed... but I did think they'd be in the No. 2-4 discussion, with a potential to host in the quarterfinals.

I think Boston College at No. 4 is the biggest snub of the bracket, with I suppose Stony Brook at No. 5 as the second biggest.

Should BC and Stony Brook advance, it's also crazy to think that the two teams that have been receiving the most first place votes this spring—outside of maybe only Maryland—won't even be meeting in a Final Four setting.

For what it's worth, here's how I would've seeded the top five:
1. Maryland, No. 2 Stony Brook, No. 3 Boston College, No. 4 James Madison, No. 5 UNC

You know who else are quality wins? Notre Dame, Navy, USC, UNC, Dartmouth, Duke, Northwestern, Denver, Syracuse, Virginia—all teams that Boston College and Stony Brook recorded wins over this season.

WOMEN'S LACROSSE: Was Stony Brook Snubbed by NCAA Selection Committee?
https://herosports.com/lacrosse/womens-lax-was-stony-brook-snubbed-by-ncaa-selection-committee-cici

Quote
Stony Brook led both polls for most of the season, but won't have home field advantage through the quarterfinals. What gives?

From this data, it seems that the strongest indicator of seeding at the top was a team’s record against other tournament teams. It’s almost a straight linear pattern from the top down: Maryland won 12 of 13; North Carolina won 9 of 12; Madison won 8 of 9. Predictably, things get stickier when you consider Boston College and Stony Brook both played six apiece, with the Seawolves winning all six and the Eagles winning five.

I imagine the committee is prepared to argue that Boston College was undefeated until very recently, when it lost in the ACC tournament championship game to North Carolina. Clearly, the major difference between profiles is Boston College’s ACC Schedule (Average Opponent RPI: 23) held up against Stony Brook’s America East Schedule (Average Opponent RPI: 80).

Bottom line? The résumé differences between Stony Brook and Boston College are so paper-thin that either team would be a defensible selection for the No. 4 seed. Despite what the polls might say, it’s hard to sell Stony Brook’s No. 5 seed as an outright snub. If anyone has a right to complain here, it’s a No. 6 Florida team with more marquee wins than both of the two teams seeded immediately above it.


Quote
Stony Brook got a little unlucky with how some of its non-conference opponents turned out, but it still could have been more aggressive in its scheduling. Replacing a CAA opponent like Delaware with a nearby ACC school like Syracuse might be the extra bump it could have needed to pass BC.

Albany, the America East’s second-best team, did not come close to making this bracket as an at-large selection. Its RPI was 48.

Women’s Lacrosse assigned number five seed for NCAA Tournament
http://www.sbstatesman.com/2018/05/08/womens-lacrosse-assigned-number-five-seed-for-ncaa-tournament/

Quote
Stony Brook, which received all 23 number one votes this past weekend and most recently won the America East Championship for a sixth straight season, is seeded below Maryland, North Carolina, James Madison and Boston College, which were awarded the No. 1, No. 2, No. 3 and No. 4 seeds, respectively.

Stony Brook has had its fair share of underseeding in the past, specifically last season. The Seawolves were going to be ranked seventh in last year’s poll, but were relegated to a No. 8 seed. The team went on to face Maryland in the quarterfinals and lost in the final minutes.

I mean, we have the number one non-conference [Rating Percentage Index] in the country,” Spallina said. “That’s got to be worth something. If we aren’t number one, what they’re basically saying is if you’re not in the Big 10, if you’re not in the ACC, you can’t be a one or two, maybe even a three or a four. So they’re going to have to look at themselves in the mirror and figure it out. I would just hope that just because we aren’t a power five conference, that we get the respect that we deserve.”

The Cartel Five don't want the little guy winning or even having a chance. I say let's win it all on our home field and shut all the naysayers up. It's criminal what the committee has been allowed to get away with.

The seeding criteria are bogus. It's based largely on RPI and strength of schedule as separate factors. Guess what...that's double counting.  RPI already is based on SOS. They're essentially counting SOS twice. Of course the Power 5 teams benefit most from this double counting.

yes and ill add- over the past 10 years, on the men's side and the women's side, they figured out that if you are in a good conference, simply add a tournament (some didnt have them).  that way you get 1-2 more games in to boost your RPI, even if you lose.

even the IVY followed and added a tournament.

Stony Brook senior attacker Kylie Ohlmiller ​continues her record-breaking trajectory, surpassing Tewaaraton winners Jen Adams and Hannah Nielsen, respectively, to become the NCAA Division I all-time leader in career points (478) and assists (240). Ohlmiller paced the Seawolves’ second-ranked offense with 145 points, 7.63 points per game and 64 assists, all good for tops in the nation for the regular season. She propelled Stony Brook to an undefeated 19-0 record, a sixth consecutive America East Championship and the No. 5 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Islip, N.Y., native netted her second consecutive America East Offensive Player of the Year award, third America East Championship Most Outstanding Player recognition and was named to the all-conference first team for the fourth time. Ohlmiller is a finalist for the second time and would be the Seawolves’ first Tewaaraton winner.

And waiting for one of them is a Stony Brook team with plenty of motivation to prove why it deserved better than the 5-seed.  The Seawolves have averaged 18.26 goals per game, 2nd in DI only to Jacksonville, including scoring at least 20 goals nine times.  A trio of 100-point scorers on the team, Kylie Ohlmiller, Courtney Murphy and Taryn Ohlmiller, have a combined 369 points.

No. 4 Boston College vs. No. 5 Stony Brook (Saturday, May 19 in Newton, Mass. at 1 p.m.)

BC cruised to its 20th straight win, 16-10, over Princeton—it was the first time the pair of programs had squared off against one another.
Stony Brook improved to 20-0 over Penn, 18-5, in the most dominant performance we’ve seen thus far in the NCAA Tournament and moves to 6-5 all-time in NCAA Tournament history.


COURTNEY MURPHY’S TEWAARATON RESPONSE
On Thursday evening, the 2018 Tewaaraton finalists were announced, and the name tossed around the most in the “snub” discussion was Courtney Murphy’s. Murphy, who was in contention for the 2016 finalist discussion and redshirted last year due to an ACL tear, opened the NCAA Tournament with an offensive tear vs. Penn. She posted a game-high nine points on a game-high six goals and game-high three assists.

I don’t know how you can see this field and not pick the Seawolves. I feel rage for this team unlike any team in the men’s bracket. Straight up disrespect. Let me tell you what winners do with disrespect: They use it to fuel their progress. They raise that rage monster all day in a musty cage until it’s time to let it out onto the field. This is Stony Brook’s time. WE ARE ALL OHLMILLERS!Dave Anderson

Stony Brook is used to bracket controversy, and this year’s five spot raised eyebrows. But there’s a difference in the current mindset: SBU doesn’t care. The Seawolves don’t intend to watch someone else celebrate on their home field. NCAA all-time leading goal scorer Courtney Murphy didn’t swap a job on Wall Street for a fifth year just to break a record, and Kylie Ohlmiller has never met a big moment she didn’t like. Watch out. Dave Anderson

19-0. #1 in all polls for most of the year. #5 seed in the NCAA tournament (somehow). Championship weekend in their home stadium. Kylie Ohlmiller and Courtney Murphy’s senior year. Their last chance to prove that Stony Brook is a top, possibly the top team. Stony Brook has more motivation than a team could possibly need and the talent to make the tall task that is their road to an NCAA championship possible.Dave Anderson

With the women’s Final Four and championship at Stony Brook and the dominance they’ve displayed throughout the season, it’s definitely the year for the Seawolves. The team plays fast, hard, and together, and that combination with the skill they have will be tough to beat for any opponent. Dave Anderson

Stony Brook, controversially dealt the No. 5 seed, appeared to vent its frustration in an 18-5 blowout of Penn and now will hit the road to play at No. 4 seed Boston College, which demonstrated its depth in a 16-10 win over Princeton — which was bounced from the tournament two days after defeating Syracuse in overtime.

NCAA quarterfinal matchups: Navy at No. 1 Maryland, Northwestern at No. 2 North Carolina, No. 6 Florida at No. 3 James Madison and No. 5 Stony Brook at No. 4 Boston College.

STONY BROOK SUFFOCATES PENN, GETS READY TO HIT ROAD

Spallina has insisted time and again that defense is what has driven the Seawolves to new heights with each passing year of his seven-year tenure. The goals are sometimes flashy, but the defense is often suffocating, and it reaffirmed its dominance Sunday afternoon.

Hosting the second round of the NCAA tournament, fifth-seeded Stony Brook throttled Penn, 18-5, behind Murphy’s nine points (six goals, three assists) and a defense that held the Quakers to just 18 shots.

One of the few zone defenses in the nation, Stony Brook thrives when it’s cutting off passing lanes and playing aggressively. The starting unit of Carolyn Carrera, Mackenzie Burns, Carlee Janelli and Brooke Gubitosi excelled in front of Anna Tesoriero, who made nine saves.

Throw in the first-half defense of Ally Kennedy and Samantha DiSalvo, and the Seawolves held a team riding the high of a 15-14 overtime win over Penn State in the first round Friday night to just two first-half goals.

“I’m fired up about it,” Spallina said. “We did a really good job of making them extremely uncomfortable, and that’s really when our defense is at our best … The biggest thing is making them do what we want them to do as opposed to them dictating where the ball’s going.”

Penn coach Karin Brower Corbett praised Stony Brook, agreeing with the general consensus that Stony Brook was seeded too low.

“As I said before, I think that they should have been a higher seed. I had never seen them live, and they are impressive,” Corbett said. “I think their strength is their shooting. They’re very good shooters, and I think their basic skills are great. They play at a high pace, and they have a lot of threats on the attack. Their defense is obviously good, kept us to not many goals. We were open some on the inside, and we have to catch and finish. I don’t think we did that well today.”

“If you’re going to write our story, it would not be that Stony Brook’s going to be home the whole playoffs,” he said. “There’s going to be some kind of adversity … We’re going to go to BC, but we’ll be back here in two weeks, sitting in the same seats, happy again.”

Record books rewritten, senior duo now looks to send Stony Brook into history books

Kylie Ohlmiller wanted an autograph; Courtney Murphy searched for an empty seat. They were two Long Island high school kids marveling at the buzz on that May evening in 2012 when 7,000-plus packed LaValle Stadium on the campus of Stony Brook to watch Northwestern prevail over Syracuse for its seventh lacrosse national championship in eight years.

Six years later, Murphy and Ohlmiller, both under-the-radar recruits for coach Joe Spallina, have lifted Stony Brook to unprecedented heights. While each has her name in the NCAA record book -- Murphy is the all-time leader in goals; Ohlmiller is No. 1 in career points and assists -- Stony Brook is a national player, too.

The 5-foot-3 attacker is a dynamic playmaker who has a flair for trickery. She leads the nation in points with 145 (81 goals, 64 assists). Her No. 17 jersey is a best seller among little girl lacrosse rats, who line up after games for her signature. She even has her own bobblehead -- a first for any female athlete at Stony Brook.

Spallina dubs her "the best player on the planet," and now she'll look to lead this Stony Brook team to a galaxy that's been home to only North Carolina, Maryland and Northwestern since 2005. The last team other than those three to win the national title was Virginia in 2004.

"When Coach Spallina recruited me, he sat at his desk and laid out the dreams I had for my college career that I didn't think were possible," Ohlmiller said. "He told me: 'You're going to do these things. We're going to do these things.' They're all coming true now. The only one left is a national championship."

Like 28 of the 33 women on this team, they come from the lacrosse-crazy hub of Long Island. And like many of their teammates, they were reticent to sign with a school that's a little too close to home. But Spallina convinced them Stony Brook had the potential for a dynasty, and maybe driving home for weekend dinner wasn't such a bad thing.

"If you look at a video of how lacrosse is supposed to be played," Spallina said, "you'd watch our offense."

Ohlmiller prefers to stretch her comfort zone, challenging herself constantly to improve her skills. Even after an 11-point game, she's in Spallina's office, eager to critique herself.

"She checks every box," he said. "She's the hardest worker. She's the most skilled. She cares the most. She's the last one in the locker room. After every home game, she's the last one signing autographs."

On bobblehead night, Stony Brook gave away 500, but Ohlmiller fielded requests for more, even from administrators at the school she had never met.

Both have promising futures. Murphy got a job at the financial services company a year later and will move to Manhattan this summer. Ohlmiller, drafted first by both professional leagues, plans to go into coaching.

Stony Brook: Getting Back Their Chip

Known for their uptempo, creative offensive play, the Seawolves have scored almost thrice their opponents with 365 goals — which has a lot to do with their significant sharing on offense, proven in their 231 assists. But what has made Stony Brook such a force this season is their ability to balance out both ends of the field, pushing the boundaries on offense while remaining airtight on defense and being able to shut off opponents. That’s how they’ve managed to only allow four teams to score 10 or more goals on them in a matchup, and that’s how they’ve stayed at No. 1 in the country for a majority of the season.

Spallina says what makes this group of seniors so special is their belief in the program. “These seniors came to Stony Brook when we were nobody. They committed to Stony Brook when we were a vision and they’ve stayed the course and built something that is really special,” says Spallina.

And despite the decision, he thinks their seeding has had a positive impact on the team and has given them the chance to refocus on themselves. “I think it was the closest to us suffering a loss without losing a game, so it allowed us to get that little chip on our shoulder back,” explains Spallina. He says the team has had their best practices of the year since the selection draw, which has just added more fuel to their already intense fire. They’re in a great position now, they’re the “underdog” and everybody loves the chance at their own Cinderella story.


to me, there simply is not a better way to handle this situation than the way joe is.  bravo.

2. Stony Brook, undefeated in the regular season but seeded fifth in the NCAA tournament, and Boston College, the second-to-last undefeated team, will meet in what could be the biggest game in Division I women’s lacrosse this season.

Come Saturday, two teams that felt slighted by the NCAA Selection Committee will battle for a final four spot — a game that seems fit for a championship. The buzz is already palpable surrounding Newton Campus Lacrosse Field.

For Boston College and coach Acacia Walker-Weinstein, it’s best to maintain a level head ahead of the biggest game of the Eagles’ slate thus far. Stony Brook and coach Joe Spallina are taking a different approach.

“We don’t run from the noise,” he said. “We embrace it. ... The mood is what you expect of a hungry group of people who feel disrespected.”

HUNGRY BOSTON COLLEGE, STONY BROOK BATTLE IN POTENTIAL GAME OF THE YEAR

Spallina argued that Boston College was done wrong by the selection committee like his Seawolves.

“I think they got underseeded,” he said. “They got put in a crappy spot [as the No. 4 seed]. ... It’s a situation where you have two great teams that have major offensive firepower. We respect the hell out of them.”

Offensively, Stony Brook (18.3 goals per game) and Boston College (16 gpg) rank second and 11th, respectively. More impressively, the Seawolves boast the nation’s top defense (6.9 goals against per game) against the Eagles’ No. 7 ranked defense, which allows just 9.1 goals against per game.

Four of the nation’s top eight point scorers will be on the field at once – Stony Brook's Kylie Ohlmiller (7.6 ppg, 1st), Courtney Murphy (6.4 ppg, 2nd) and Taryn Ohlmiller (5.4 ppg, 8th) and Boston College's Sam Apuzzo (5.5 ppg, 6th).

For pure goal scoring, three of the top nine are featured – Murphy (4.7 gpg, 1st), Kylie Ohlmiller (4.3 gpg, 4th) and Apuzzo (3.81 gpg, 9th).

“We create situations and adversity [in practice],” Spallina said. “We try to make our kids tough. There’s a reason why we haven’t been in a one-goal game this year. ... They’re not nervous about playing in a close game. Our kids love pressure.”

Apuzzo ranks 12th nationally in draws per game and her counterpart, Keri McCarthy, ranks 10th. McCarthy’s improvement, along with Carolyn Carerra, has been the focus of Spallina’s team this year.

Kylie Ohlmiller and Courtney Murphy’s numbers are jaw-dropping

Let’s just focus on this year for now. Ohlmiller and Murphy rank No. 1 and No. 2 in Division-I in points scored. Ohlmiller has 152 points (86 goals and 66 assists) while Murphy has 127 (93 goals and 34 assists).

Over her career, Ohlmiller now has a record 493 points, 48 clear of Jen Adams in second-place and 95 more than Hannah Nielsen, who was in third-place all-time before being passed by Murphy (now with 403) this past Sunday.

Before this season, only one player in the history of Division-I college lacrosse had ever recorded more than 400 points (Adams). Both Murphy and Ohlmiller have hit the mark this year and there is a high likelihood that Ohlmiller will reach 500 points either this weekend or next.

Murphy now holds the career goals record by a staggering 43 (now over Maryland’s Megan Whittle, also a senior this season). Ohlmiller holds the career assists record by 18. These players are now statistically running away from all-time greats.

Combined, they have 896 career points and 589 career goals. No pair of teammates playing their final season together have ever achieved anything CLOSE to that. The second-highest points total comes from Adams and her classmate Allison Comito (who ironically became the Stony Brook head coach from 2006 to 2011).

Ohlmiller and Murphy have combined for 589 career goals (and counting). The next best teammate total in D-I lacrosse history is 450 goals. Ohlmiller/Murphy is statistically the greatest scoring duo ever... by 30.9 percent.

Counterpoint: Kylie Ohlmiller has played seven games this season against teams that made the NCAA Tournament. She has 51 points (7.28 points per game) in those seven games, just off her 7.60 points-per-game clip overall.

The Seawolves earned two major awards, as Senior Kylie Ohlmiller (Islip, N.Y.) was named Offensive Player of the Year, while Joe Spallina was named Coach of the Year.

Ohlmiller is joined on the All-ECAC First Team by Taryn Ohlmiller (Islip, N.Y.), Brooke Gubitosi (East Northport, N.Y.) and Anna Tesoriero (Huntington, N.Y.), while Courtney Murphy (Shirley, N.Y.) and Ally Kennedy (North Babylon, N.Y.) were selected to the All-ECAC Second Team.

Stony Brook has now won 20-straight contests so far in 2018, outscoring opponents 365-137. The Seawolves currently rank No. 1 nationally in six major Division I team statistics: points per game (29.80), scoring margin (+11.40), assists per game (11.55), shot percentage (.546), turnovers per game (11.95), and team defense (6.85 goals-allowed per contest).

No. 4 Boston College vs. No. 5 Stony Brook
When: Saturday, May 19th at 1pm
Where to Watch: ESPN3
Last time: N/A
Key Players: Stony Brook - Kylie & Taryn Ohlmiller, Courtney Murphy; BC - Sam Apuzzo, Dempsey Arsenault, Kaileen Hart
Key Matchup: BC’s Attack vs. Stony Brook’s Defense
My pick: Stony Brook

It’s the matchup we’ve been waiting for all season, the one we thought we’d have to wait until the championship to see. However, Stony Brook’s lower than anticipated seed pushed this matchup to the quarterfinals. This seeding is putting yet another chip on Stony Brook’s shoulders to get to play back in La Valle Stadium for the championship. We’ll also get to see two Tewaraaton finalists go head to head, with Kylie Ohlmiller (86G, 66A) and Sam Apuzzo (80G, 35A, 138 DC).

Stony Brook is my pick in this one, not only is their attack on fire, featuring the second ranked scoring offense in the country, but the Seawolves also lead the country in scoring defense. Additionally, only one of these teams has been defeated this season, with Boston College losing to North Carolina in the ACC championship. The BC defense also struggles with fast breaks and covering cutters, and facing a team like Stony Brook that moves the ball fast and does it well, this poses problems for the Eagles.

A key for Boston College will be coming into this one confident from the start. The Eagles started off a little shaky against Princeton, but once they got into the groove their offense came together despite a faceguard on Sam Apuzzo. If we see this again, expect Dempsey Arsenault (56G, 32A), Kaileen Hart (51G, 27A), Tess Chandler (41G, 1A), and Emma Schurr (21G, 12A) to step up on the attack. The Stony Brook defense faces a high-paced offense everyday in practice, we’ll see if they can handle what the Eagles throw at them. Look for Brooke Gubitosi (31CT), Samantha DiSalvo (18CT), and goalie Anna Tesoriero (49.8% SA) to drive the Seawolves defensive efforts.

If Boston College wants to stay in this one, the Eagles defense is going to have to step up their game. They’ll look to Carly Bell (16CT), Hannah Hyatt (16CT), Elizabeth Miller (15CT), and goalie Lauren Daly (43.6% SA) to come up big. Stony Brook is led by Kylie Ohlmiller, Courtney Murphy (93G, 34A), Taryn Ohlmiller (52G, 55A), and Ally Kennedy (43G, 21A). Taryn Ohlmiller left the Penn game with a lower body injury, but hopefully we see her out there this weekend.

Rough start had me worried for a bit, but we do what great teams do, don't panic. Up 7-6 going into the half which is fantastic. I'm finding this way more entertaining than I thought it would be  ;D

Navy and Maryland are tied up 14-14 right now. It'd be HUGE if Navy could take down UMD. If we can get out of BC with a win, I'd much rather play Navy than Maryland at home.

As the announcer said at the half, this should be the national championship game, not a quarterfinal match-up.

Disclaimer: I know nothing about Lacrosse.

Well, IMO SBU lucky to have 7-6 lead at the half, and this has to be demoralizing to BC, after being up 4-1.  I think BC is faster than SBU, and have beaten them to the ball much more often, particularly during the mid-field "face-off" (probably wrong term).  But, some nice resilience by SBU, and some really good D the last 5-6 minutes of 1st half.

Some stupid comments from me:  I think 90-second possessions are too long (I think it should be 60 seconds), and these "free shots" (again, wrong terminology I'm sure), are given by refs way to frequently, IMO.

Go SBU!  Let's finish it off in the 2nd half!

P.S.  If a player gets 2 Yellow Cards in a game, are they ejected from the game?

teso is killing BC especially on the free position shots (which yes, im not a huge fan of and is constant discussion in the sport).

i think two yellows are out for the game (possibly next?), not sure. GO SB

Post by: VA_Seawolf on May 19, 2018, 02:42:51 pm
I don't get this free position thing, but hey, we're still up 2 right now.

I'll say this though, this flows much more smoothly with less interruption than your typical basketball game where it's whistle whistle whistle every 5 seconds making it unwatchable.

BC just kept running that same play at the end of the game and the defense didn't adapt- lob the ball up to their 6 footer from behind the net.

Like I said great season but this team is going to be very different next year.

This wouldn't sting as bad if the next two rounds were being played at Lavalle.

Tough seed (5) meant a trip on the road.

Losing Taryn Ohlmiller (key playmaker, top-10 scorer in the US with over 100-points) for the entire game proved impossible to overcome.

Draw control was a bit of an issue (credit BC on this one).

As another poster noted, next year's team will be very different...but IMHO very good as Joe tends to reload (plus Taryn, our goalie, and others return)

Exactly. I can't say we have a recruiting problem when we were 20-0 and #1 all year, but having that kind of size would be beneficial in games like this. I guess as in other sports, recruits see we have a great program, but then look at the conference we're in and decide to go elsewhere.

 Spallina has no problem recruiting. Team lost a game by a goal in double OT. Conf has nothing to do with. BC played a bit better today. Albany mens lax has no problem recruiting either. The common theme there is that both programs have coaches that kids want to play for. The CAA in lax will not make one bit of difference in recruiting.

I agree. Tho Chrissy makes a good point about UA and SB not having a problem recruiting great athletes, I still think if SB was in a better conference our RPI would have been  better and SB probably would have gotten home field advantage through out the playoffs.

This is true Chrissy, but you cant tell me for one second that SB didn't  got the raw end of the stick in seeding because of the AE conference. Every article I have read this week said SB was seeded 5th because of this conference. So bottom line. If SB girls Lax played in the CAA conference this year, with a perfect record, there is no doubt they would have gotten a better seed and BC would have played at LaValle stadium, and probably would have won this game..

P.S. Dont be shocked if the girls Lax get an invite into the Big10 after this season.

Recruiting will not be an issue for Joe- he's built these teams on under-recruited Long Island talent. With how good the brand has become, you will be seeing elite level LI talent staying at home. He just seems like an amazing coach to play for.

With regards to the conference situation, yes Stony Brook would have probably been seeded higher as an undefeated CAA team. If they were undefeated in the ACC or Big 10 the same would be the case. What I dislike about these hypotheticals is that there is no guarantee that they would have been undefeated in those conferences. Part of the reason they were undefeated is they played in the AE.

The AE makes geographic sense and budget wise for the university. I'm not holding my breath for a conference move. With continued aggressive OOC games, the seeding will be better. They key will be adding some ACC teams to their schedule IMHO- beating Northwestern/Stanford/USC etc. didn't carry the weight that it needed.

All good points.  What I think is paramount for SBU is to continue to build the local brand, and recruit heavily in the Long Island area - heck, we've got 3 million people who live out here.  Do as Spallina has done, and engage with the local kids.  This goes for all of our athletics programs.  We're the # 1 game in town for college athletics (clearly overtaken Hofstra, IMO) - let's keep our kids home!

Sure, it was disappointing to not get to the Final 4 here, but it is extremely difficult, regardless of seeding and venue, to win it all in these one-and-done tournaments, where everyone taking part in the Tournament is a force.  When the dust settles and disappointment dissipates, the women's LAX team will be able to hold their heads up high and revel in their season accomplishments.  Congrats to them on a great season that legitimately put SBU on the national map!

Ah, Gotcha. Taryn went out, but we still had Kylie, so that's what confused me. We definitely win with Taryn in the game.

Spallina and co are a great staff and we've got enough coming back that we should be right back in the tourney again next year. This year had a title run on a silver platter though and I wouldn't count on that again.

We should always schedule strong OOC schedules in all sports, but the difference in travel in the AE compared to the CAA or A10 is negligible in the grand scheme of things. We're already outspending several Mountain West programs as is, so I doubt money is the issue. Chicago State is on the brink of collapse, but they still fly their teams all over the country in the WAC to compete. We need to be doing everything we can to get the hell out of this conference. I thought we could improve it and spur our conference mates to invest more into athletics, but that was clearly wishful thinking on my part. Hofstra has blocked us in the past, but if we continue taking care of business in all of our sports, we can at least land ourselves in the CAA if not an FBS conference.

Chrissy . Tho I agree Ohlmiller got screwed last year, I think this year competition between BC, Apuzzo was a toss up. I am no Lax nut but when you have a player who is #1 in face off and ground balls and scores as many goals as her, its tough to beat that.  But,I am bias and think Ohlmiller should have won it also..

I think playoff performance (and team success) is heavily weighted in the women's award. Not saying it's right, just seem to be the way it is recently. To be brutally honest, Kylie did not have her best game v BC (most likely due to the devastating injury to her sister - and number three team scorer - the previous game). Apuzzo had strong all -around playoff games and had 3 goals and 4 assists in the finals loss. That said, I really wish Kylie had won it.

14. STONY BROOK
2018 record: 20-1 (7-0 America East)

Last seen: Falling to eventual NCAA runner-up Boston College in a double-overtime thriller in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts.

Senior starts lost: 111 of 252 (44.1 percent)

Senior scoring departing: 361 of 612 (59.0 percent)

Initial forecast: There’s little predicting how difficult it will be for the Seawolves to replace a pair of record book-altering scorers like Kylie Ohlmiller and Courtney Murphy. In addition to those starters, Stony Brook loses key pieces at the draw and on defense, and then there’s the unknown element of how Taryn Ohlmiller will recover from her torn ACL. The heavy lifting will fall on players like Ally Kennedy and Keri McCarthy offensively. As we’ve seen in years past, you can’t count out what coach Joe Spallina and company will produce.

Kylie Ohlmiller Turns the Page, Enters WPLL & Signs With Brine

Endorsement deal, professional career next for the once-unknown kid from Islip

Shortly after 8 p.m. on May 7, Kylie Ohlmiller was sitting on her couch at a house she shared with her Stony Brook teammates when she received a Twitter notification. It was from the New York Fight of the Women’s Professional Lacrosse League. Ohlmiller had been selected first in the draft.

It came as a surprise — and not just because Stony Brook’s Joe Spallina was the only Division I head coach who had Ohlmiller on speed dial when she was trying to get recruited out of Islip High School.

“I hadn’t known the draft was going on that night,” Ohlmiller admitted with a laugh. She and her teammates spent the next 15 minutes watching the draft on Facebook Live, cheering when fellow Seawolf Courtney Murphy was selected 10th by the Fight.

Ohlmiller hopes to make the draft — and New York Fight games — appointment viewing moving forward. The WPLL began its inaugural season this month, and Ohlmiller is expected to make her professional debut when New York plays at Baltimore Saturday.

Ohlmiller: '10 Things You NEED To Know Before Playing College Lacrosse'
http://www.insidelacrosse.com/article/ohlmiller-10-things-you-need-to-know-before-playing-college-lacrosse-/52658

Quote
By Kylie Ohlmiller, 4x IWLCA All-American, 2x Tewaaraton Finalist  @kyohlmiller

Growing up playing lacrosse the ultimate goal is to go to your dream college. We’ve worked so hard all our lives to make that happen, and when it finally comes to the time when your days in high school are dwindling down and it’s time to start preparing for college – what is some of the advice that people give you?

“Make sure you’re in shape.”

“Keep an open mind.”

“Be prepared.”

“It’s going to be a big step up from high school.”

Right?

Yet, sometimes we don’t know what these pieces of advice truly mean.

I want to share a little bit of my advice for the young women who are taking their next step in their journey and are going off to college to play lacrosse. I want to take a second to explain some of the pieces of advice mentioned above, while also adding a few things that helped me through the transition from high school to college. It’s a nerve-wracking time with high school ending and college about to begin. When I was a senior in high school, I thought nothing could ever beat the four years in my hometown. But now that I am done with college, I can tell you that my four years playing college lacrosse was by far the best experience of my life.

The following is some advice that I’ve been given over the years from coaches, parents, and teammates about the transition from high school to college. And I’ve mixed in a little twist of my own, in hopes of helping you - the next generation of talented and inspirational college women’s lacrosse players – go into college with the mindset to work hard, the goal of having the time of your life, and overall excitement rather than nerves.

Meghan Pickel, Attack/Midfield, Bayport Blue-Port (N.Y.), 2019 | Stony Brook
She pushed the pace for her squad and created scoring. Defensively she kept active, doing whatever she could to try and slow down a powerful opposition. Her constant movement and grinding will be a welcome addition in the eyes of the Stony Brook coaching staff.

Having Ohlmiller and Murphy together, and healthy, was a treat for 2018. They tore it up all year, but a span of the month signifies their greatness. Courtney Murphy set the all-time goals record on April 5. On April 22, Kylie Ohlmiller broke the points and assists record. Dave Anderson Photo

The Stony Brook women's lacrosse team had a historic season in 2018.

The Seawolves completed their first undefeated regular season, reached No. 1 in a national poll for the first time in program history and won their sixth straight America East title.

Comprised mostly of Long Island natives, the team was led by coach Joe Spallina (Rocky Point) and senior captains Kylie Ohlmiller (Islip), Courtney Murphy (Floyd), Brooke Gubitosi (Northport) and Sam DiSalvo (Hewlett).

Stony Brook advanced to the NCAA Tournament quarterfinals for a second straight season, where the Seawolves' season ended in heartbreaking fashion, 12-11 in overtime, to Boston College.

Watch our video documenting their 2018 campaign, on and off the field.

TARYN OHLMILLER RECOVERS FROM ACL TEAR AHEAD OF NEW YEAR FOR STONY BROOK
https://www.uslaxmagazine.com/college/women/taryn-ohlmiller-recovers-from-acl-tear-ahead-of-new-year-for-stony-brook

Quote
Because of that same ACL injury, Ohlmiller won’t be able to play lacrosse this fall. She can go to the games, but she’ll have to stay on the sideline.

That also might not be such a bad thing.

The younger Ohlmiller, a third-team All-American and the team’s leading returning scorer (52 goals and 55 assists last year), will help fill that void. She won’t be cleared to play until the end of November, but she’s seeing how that could end up being a positive.

“You kind of get this coaching and leadership perspective that you wouldn’t necessarily get while playing,” she said. “Anyone who has torn their ACL will tell you that it sucks and that the physical therapy sucks. But being next to the coach on the sideline and hearing what he has to say can help you learn as a player.”

The game marked the start of an endless summer for Ohlmiller.

Typically, she spends three hours training each day. This year, she didn’t do much of anything for a month and a half. She’d hangout with friends and get so exhausted that she’d go home and nap for three hours. She endured long physical therapy sessions. She couldn’t play lacrosse other than wall ball.

Next week, she’ll finally be able to start running. She doesn’t expect to go that far. Ohlmiller’s teammate and roommate Caitlyn McDuffee tore her ACL three days after she did, so at least there’s someone to commiserate with.

She also still has her older sister to talk to. Kylie’s back home, setting up her own lacrosse coaching and clinic business. The Ohlmiller sisters have always sought each other out for advice. They’ve never been competitive. They prefer to have fun on the field, joke around, and feed off each other.

It was actually a change of perspective from Kylie that brought the younger Ohlmiller to Stony Brook. Taryn originally committed to Towson in 10th grade. At the time, her older sister wanted to do her own thing.

But things changed.

Stony Brook put itself on the national map during Kylie’s freshman year. They beat USC, Notre Dame and Florida. Taryn started thinking that staying on Long Island for college might be a good idea. So did her sister.

Once coach Joe Spallina got a hold of her, she had no choice. She could be close to home. Her parents could come to every game. She could play with her sister again.

That development has certainly benefited Stony Brook. The Seawolves have lost just three games since Taryn arrived on campus. Stony Brook is a destination now.

“When we were younger, we would go to Stony Brook to watch the big team that they were playing,” Ohlmiller said. “Now these little girls are coming to watch us play instead. I think that’s great for Long Island, and lacrosse and little girls.”

“I’m not a tennis player,” Gubitosi said. “I love tennis, to watch tennis. I come here every year with my dad, and my dad always made a joke about, ‘You should be a ball person.’ I saw a commercial or something on YouTube about a tryout.

“I tried out and made it. And here I am.”

Perhaps no one personified this milestone tournament more than Tiffany Zullo, an assistant coach for Yellow Jackets 2022 Team Piscitelli (N.Y.). Before joining the Long Island club’s coaching staff, before her recently completed four-year career at Stony Brook and before earning All-Suffolk County honors in lacrosse and field hockey at Connetquot High School, Zullo patrolled the midfield for the 2011 champion Yellow Jackets.

“It was so great to win this at Disney,” Zullo said at a US Lacrosse-sponsored social event for coaches following a weather-delayed round of pool-play games.

The trip down memory lane continued.

“The day before the championship, I was guarding a girl and got whacked in the head on a follow-through. I was bleeding everywhere.”

Rebecca Thorn, an assistant coach for that squad and this year coaching her own Yellow Jackets team in the 13U Division, joined in the laughter.

“The worst part was, they counted the goal,” Zullo said.

Reviewing her squad’s roster from that year, Zullo smiled with fondness as she read down the list, then inhaled suddenly and looked up.

AMERICA EAST
As we inch closer to the 2019 season, the America East crown still runs through Stony Brook. But the Seawolves graduated history-making talent, leaving the field more hopeful than in years past. Teams are listed in order of last year’s final standings.

STONY BROOK
7-0 AMERICA EAST, 20-1 OVERALL
The Seawolves graduated record-breaking scorers Kylie Ohlmiller and Courtney Murphy, not to mention five-year defensive standout Brooke Gubitosi. But Stony Brook has won six straight conference titles, and coach Joe Spallina said top returning scorer Taryn Ohlmiller is expected to be back in full swing by the start of the season after tearing her ACL in May.
