Like clockwork, another year has rolled around and the Stony Brook women’s lacrosse team has a case that the NCAA Tournament selection committee gave the Seawolves a raw deal with regards to their playoff fate.
By walloping the Albany Great Danes 16-4 in the 2022 regular season finale as expected, Stony Brook clinched its ninth consecutive America East regular season title and its 60th straight win over an America East opponent.
It should not be hard to regularly fill Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium’s 12,300 seats or Island Federal Arena’s 4,000 seats for sports games. Yet Stony Brook’s attendance numbers have remained low throughout the years.
On Thursday, the Brown Bears scored 22 goals against Central Connecticut — the most they have scored in a single game this season. But when the Seawolves came to town on Tuesday, March 22, the Bears couldn’t score more than three.
After 21 years, the Seawolves’ America East chapter was officially finished with an 87-68 victory over the NJIT Highlanders. After a flurry of off-court controversy and difficulties, it brings the season to an end.
