On Thursday, Nov. 5, Stony Brook released its America East conference schedule for seven sports set to play in the spring: baseball, men’s and women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s soccer, softball and volleyball.
On Sept. 22, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Board of Directors approved a 2021 spring schedule for teams who had their fall 2020 seasons postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The America East has postponed fall sports to the spring. Many other conferences have canceled their fall sports seasons as well, including the Patriot League, Ivy League and several Division II and Division III conferences
A GoFundMe fundraiser has been started for the family of freshman Noah Farrelly, the Stony Brook University student athlete who is in critical condition after being struck by a car on campus this Tuesday.
“The guys competed very well today, taking seventh out of 23 teams, with 5 of the 6 teams in front of us ranked in the top 30 in the Nation,” head coach Andy Ronan said in a press release. “It’s early season but I felt it was important for us to run well against our regional opponents. Finishing in front of Dartmouth, Boston University and Providence was encouraging at this stage.”
