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.
