For the first time in program history, Stony Brook Women’s Lacrosse is ranked No. 1 in a national Division I poll. The ranking, released by the Cascade Women’s Division I Media Poll follows the Seawolves’ decisive 16-3 triumph over Denver, as well as an upset victory by North Carolina over previous No. 1 Maryland.
On Feb. 25, the Seawolves won their third-straight contest over a nationally-ranked opponent to begin the 2018 season, topping No. 20 Denver in a lopsided contest at the Seawolves’ home opener at LaValle Stadium.
Redshirt senior Courtney Murphy led all scorers, tallying six goals and one assist for seven points in the win. Senior Kylie Ohlmiller added six points of her own (four goals, two assists), helping the Seawolves improve to 3-0.
“Today was another statement win for us. That’s a very good Denver team, they’re going to win a lot of games this year,” said head coach Joe Spallina.
