Stony Brook is coming off back-to-back runs to the NCAA quarterfinals, both of which ended in losses to the North Carolina Tar Heels. Now members of the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA), the Seawolves will look to get over the hump this year and capture the national championship.
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.
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.
One of the Stony Brook football team’s biggest additions this past offseason was not to the roster, but rather to the coaching staff. Former head coach of LIU’s football team Bryan Collins joins the Seawolves as their new defensive line coach.
The coaching staff of the Stony Brook football team gained another shakeup on Tuesday, Aug. 17, when it was announced that Bryan Collins would be joining the Seawolves as their new defensive line coach.
