Replacements are key for volleyball

Bump, set, spike! The women’s volleyball team looks to continue its success in its 2012 campaign, just as it did in 2011. Last year, the Seawolves, led by senior Alicia Nelson, made it to the America East final, where they eventually fell to Albany after finishing the year 15-13. The women’s volleyball team looks to build on last year by replacing key players and ultimately getting back to the America East final and winning.

To replace their key seniors from the 2011 team, head coach Deb DesLauriers added four freshmen, all looking to make an impact on the team. As coach DesLauriers said on goseaawolves.org, “I couldn’t be more excited to welcome Melissa, Shelby, Stephanie and Nicole to the Stony Brook family. They each are talented and skilled players who will be great additions to our program. But more importantly they are exactly the type of student-athletes that we want on our team.”
The Seawolves open up 2012 with the Black Knights Invitational, held at West Point, against Indiana on August 24th. The Yale Classic, Rose Hill Classic and SHU Invitational follow, leading up to the start of the 2012 season on September 25th against LIU at home. Stony Brook looks to get revenge for the America East final against Albany on September 30th and October 26th. The Seawolves are looking to continue the success of Stony Brook Athletics as a whole with a stellar season this year. With the support of the Stony Brook community in the stands, the Seawolves will be a team to watch out for in the America East.
