The eighth-seeded Stony Brook women’s lacrosse team was firing on all cylinders at home on Friday, as the Seawolves defeated the visiting Towson Tigers by a final score of 14-8 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
This Saturday and Sunday, their struggles finally caught up to them when they were swept by the Albany Great Danes in a three-game road series; the Seawolves were outscored 11-3 despite outhitting Albany 21-17.
The 52nd straight America East win for the No. 6-ranked SBU women’s lacrosse team was a sweet one. One of the most talented senior classes in Stony Brook history wrapped up their final regular season with a dominating 18-7 win over UMBC on Saturday.
As dominant as SBU’s baseball team has been in America East play, its bullpen might determine how far they go in the postseason. SBU bounced back from an early 4-7 nonconference record by winning its first ten games against America East opponents.
The Stony Brook softball team struggled through their three-game homestand this week, splitting a doubleheader with the Hofstra Pride on Tuesday and dropping a grudge match with the Fordham Rams on Thursday.
