Great move by coach.

June 9, 2015

Stony Brook, N.Y. - Stony Brook head men's lacrosse coach Jim Nagle announced that Zach Oliveri has accepted a grant-in-aid offer and will join the Seawolves in the fall.

Oliveri, a transfer from Massachusetts, will have one year of eligibility.

"We're excited to welcome Zach to the Seawolves family," Nagle said. "Zach brings a wealth of experience to the goalie position. He was a terrific player at UMass and will provide our team with experience and wisdom."

After redshirting as a freshman, Oliveri started 43 straight games, registering a 9.48 goals against average and a .532 save percentage. He posted 21 career games with 10 saves or more, including 15 in a 10-9 loss to Albany, the nation's top scoring team.

As a redshirt freshman, Oliveri finished the 2013 season with a 8.63 GAA and a .559 save percentage. In the second game of the season, Oliveri made 18 saves in a 12-11 victory over No. 4 North Carolina.

Oliveri starred at nearby Connetquot High School, earning US Lacrosse All-America honors. A top-100 recruit and top-15 goalie, Oliveri was the starting goalie for the USA U19 team that won a gold medal in Finland in 2012.

Stony Brook returns eight starters and 30 letterwinners from a team that went 13-5 and advanced to the America East Championship game.
