The Seawolves (4-0) wrapped up their trip to San Diego on Friday with a 14-11 win over the No. 17 Stanford Cardinal. Stony Brook found itself down by as much as six goals in the second quarter before flipping a switch to remain unbeaten.
When defender Clare Levy takes the field at Kenneth P. Lavalle Stadium and sees her family in the crowd, the game takes on a whole new meaning. She is then reminded that she not only represents Stony Brook, but her fellow Long Islanders as well.
Playing its second consecutive road game against a nationally ranked opponent, the No. 6 Stony Brook women’s lacrosse team had a chance to earn back-to-back statement wins in its pursuit of an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament.
For the first time in seven years, the Seawolves are winners in Gainesville. The No. 5 Stony Brook women’s lacrosse team beat No. 11 Florida 14-13 on March 5, breaking a four-game losing streak against the Gators.
