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)

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.

Spallina building a powerhouse at Stony Brook. Here is the Press release:

Facing two final four teams, and four NCAA teams overall. Awesome. Lets hope for the best for our girls.

Duke W Lacrosse coming to town!

The men  will not be shabby next year either.  Facing Maryland and Virginia.   Rooting for our ladies this Saturday- want to see them get off to a strong start!

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.

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.

Stony Brook 10-1 at half. Great game so far. a good turnout.

SB is clearly more talented.
