The atypical winds and cool temperatures of Madeira Beach, Florida, could not stop the Stony Brook softball team from a red-hot start to their season on Friday, Feb. 21, erasing a five-run deficit in walk-off fashion and beating the Colgate Raiders 6-5. Their opener marks the first of five games this weekend at the annual Spring Games.
Stony Brook Softball came out of the America East awards ceremony with a lot to smile about, after players were named to the All-Conference First Team, Second Team, Rookie Team, and All-Academic Team, as well as bringing home the top honor, the America East Player of the Year.
Having dealt with immense weather problems during the opening weeks of the season, Stony Brook was able to play a full slate of tournament games after the cancellation of eight out of their first ten scheduled matches.
The Stony Brook Softball season is around the corner and the team is poised to exceed expectations. With three veteran senior leaders and several new additions to the roster, the Seawolves are determined to reclaim their first America East Championship since 2013.
