In the middle of a five-game homestand, the Stony Brook volleyball team improved its record to 4-6 by winning two of three matches in the Stony Brook Invitational on Friday, Sept. 10 and Saturday, Sept. 11 at Pritchard Gymnasium.
So far, after playing five non-conference games, the men’s soccer team has started the season 4-1, beating LIU, Drexel, Columbia and Fairfield while only narrowly losing to Hofstra in between. The team’s 4-1 start is the best since 2004.
“We just want to prove ourselves,” sophomore defender Kerry Pearson said in an interview with The Statesman. “We have a really young team and we have the talent there and we just have to keep working hard to prove ourselves.”
The Seawolves will travel upstate to face the Colgate Raiders on Saturday, Sept. 11 at Andy Kerr Stadium, looking to rebound from last Thursday’s painful season-opening loss to New Hampshire. It will be the first meeting between these two schools since 2013, with Stony Brook leading the all-time series 3-1.
Few matchups could be as deserving a choice for a home opener as the Battle of Long Island. Following two weeks of tournament play, the Stony Brook volleyball team returned home to Pritchard Gymnasium on Tuesday, Sept. 7.
