    Sports in Brief

    The Women’s Basketball team opened their season with an 82-72 loss to Marist Friday night in Poughkeepsie. The Seawolves headed into the locker room at half time down by eleven after making only 35 percent of their shots. On the other side of the court, the Red Foxes took full advantage, as junior Sarah Smrdel drilled in a career high of 24 points over the two halves.

    Stony Brook tried to take back control in the second half with an 18 point scoring drive, but it was not enough to hold off the dominant Foxes. Junior Dana Ferraro pulled down six points to bring the Seawolves within 43-40, totaling twelve points in the contest. Mykeema Ford racked up 14 points and Jessica Smith added 23 points with 12 rebounds to kick off her season with a bang.

    The Women’s Basketball team hopes to recover from the loss Friday when they travel to Chicago to take on Illinois State.

    The Men’s Basketball team took down Colgate in their season opener Friday night. The 65-59 win marks the first time since the 1996-97 season that the Seawolves have won their first away game of the season. Stony Brook came back from a 24-19 deficit at the end of the first half, shooting 67 percent in the second half.

    The Seawolves relied on Mitchell Beauford for a twenty point game, showing off the offensive skills that placed him on the American East Preseason squad. Newcomer Ricky Lucas rounded out the offense, matching Beauford for twenty points.

    Stony Brook takes on Cornell Monday night on the road as they hope to build a winning streak leading into the heart of the season.

    The Stony Brook Volleyball team went 1-1 this past week as they were swept by Albany, but came back the next day to take a win against Hartford. The win evened up their conference record at 6-6, keeping the Seawolves in the running for the conference title.

    The match also marked the last home appearance for seniors Sarah Bauer, Claire Lindner and Kelli Sams. They were honored before the game for their contributions to the team.

    The team awaits results from this weekend to determine whether or not they will be granted a berth in the conference tournament.
