Last weekend, the Seawolves (2-3) opened up their 2023 season down in Florida at the Florida Atlantic University (FAU) Paradise Classic. The tournament was five games long, with one game on Friday, followed by doubleheaders on Saturday and Sunday.
Last season was an unorthodox one for the Stony Brook softball team. Though they suffered several key departures heading into the 2022 season, the Seawolves finished with their highest win total in a decade.
A career-high 13 strikeouts from pitcher Shelbi Denman carried Stony Brook softball to a season sweep against its Long Island rivals. The offense struck early and often, helping pave the way for Denman’s gem.
Stony Brook softball continued to roll this past weekend as the bats and arms came together in a total beatdown of the last-place Hawks. Everything went Stony Brook’s way from Saturday to Sunday, protecting its home yard to improve to 26-13.
