Sports Editor Mike Anderson heads off to the track field to talk with recent Stony Brook graduate Nick Cipolla, whose 2022 cross country team became the first Stony Brook team to win a CAA championship.
In his relatively-short basketball career, Stephenson-Moore has experienced several highs and lows. He has won every battle he has fought thus far, overcoming injuries, on-court struggles and playing-time limits in the process.
Following a disappointing season, the Stony Brook men’s basketball team now finds itself in uncharted territory. With a new conference, new players and low expectations, the Seawolves will look to prove the doubters wrong in their 2022-23 campaign.
Stony Brook women’s basketball head coach Ashley Langford knows a thing or two about managing guards: she was one as a college player. Now, she finds herself with a star-studded group of guards, presenting a revamped look to the Stony Brook offense.
Annie Warren does not say much. She is not a diva. She is not a huge trash-talker either. To put it simply, the star guard is a well-rounded player with the biggest season of her career just about to tip off.
No matter what stage she is playing on, forward Nairimar Vargas-Reyes is living her dream. The six-foot graduate student is now in her fifth and final year of college basketball and is poised to play a much bigger role for the 2022 Stony Brook women’s basketball team.
The Seawolves will rely heavily on their five new transfer students, who bring a unique set of skills different from the ones that last year’s team possessed. Expect them to be integral to the Seawolves’ success as they look to make a mark in their first season in the CAA.
