No. 1 Stony Brook women’s lacrosse finished off its unbeaten 2018 regular season on Saturday afternoon at John Fallon Field, cruising past Albany, 21-8.
With the victory, the Seawolves (17-0, 7-0 AE) will be the No. 1 seed in the 2018 America East Championship – earning the right to host the postseason conference tournament at LaValle Stadium on May 4 and May 6.
Stony Brook’s win caps off a record-breaking 2018 campaign, as the program becomes the first team in Seawolves’ history to post an unbeaten regular-season record and to achieve a No. 1 national ranking.
“It’s great for us to secure another regular-season conference title, but the biggest thing is securing home field advantage for the America East Tournament,” head coach Joe Spallina said. “We’ll continue to strive for consistency as we head into the postseason. Being 17-0 and finishing our regular season undefeated is incredible, but our real season starts on Friday.”
Stony Brook has now won 17 straight contests, the longest winning streak in program history. The Seawolves have also won 30 straight contests at LaValle Stadium.
