SBU women eye NCAA lacrosse title

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.”

There are 29,413,039 corporations in America; but only one Chairman of the Board.
